Shabda Kahn, a direct disciple of the American Sufi Master, Murshid Samuel Lewis, has been practicing Sufism since 1969 and since 2001, is the Pir (Spiritual Director) of the Sufi Ruhaniat International, the lineage tracing from Hazrat Inayat Khan and Murshid Samuel Lewis. He is also the Spiritual Guide of the Dances of Universal Peace~ worldwide. Shabda has studied and performed North Indian Classical Vocal Music under the guidance of the late Master Singer, Pandit Pran Nath, since 1972. He is also a disciple of the illustrious Tibetan Master, the 12th TaiSitu Rinpoche. The Sufi Message is pure Universal mysticism helping humanity find Limitless Freedom – Happiness, to awaken to our highest Purpose. Through the mysticism of breath, sound, music, dance and attitude, the teachings give us tools to navigate everyday life and make our lives beneficial and full of Joy.
