FROM THE BOWL OF SAKI: Love is as the water of the Ganges; it is in itself a purification. Hazrat Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan

Commentary from Hazrat Murshid Samuel L. Lewis (Sufi Ahmed Murad Chishti):
Heart heals heart. Heart may contract or expand. Its expansion is caused by Ishk; this brings healing and joy and this joy touches every corner of the Universe. The lover is as the sun which radiates energy everywhere. This cannot be explained; it is the nature of love, it is the quality of Ishk, it is the Sifat of God.

Commentary on The Bowl of Saki of Hazrat Inayat Khan
by Murshid Sufi Ahmed Murad Chishti
