Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan


Towards the One,
The perfection of love, harmony and beauty,
The Only Being,
United with all the Illuminated souls,
Who form the embodiment of the Master,
The Spirit of Guidance.


The Sufi Movement in Canada is dedicated to preserving and developing the ancient mystical philosophy of universal sufism as expressed through the teachings of Pir-o-Murshid Inayat Khan. This philosophical message is founded on the ideals of love, harmony, and beauty and the principal of spiritual liberty. The Sufi Movement in Canada makes the sufi message freely available through all means and forms and supports local, regional, and national activities. It maintains close connections and co-operation with other organizations inspired by the teachings of Inayat Khan.

Lake O'Hara Sufi Camp ran each year in the high Canadian Rocky Mountains from 1980 to 2002 and it would not be an exaggeration to say that The Sufi Movement In Canada was born from the extraordinary work accomplished in those 23 years.
