Sufi is the celebration of the Heart, it is the taste, it is the fragrance of love. If you once got drunk with the wine of Love, if you felt - even once - Silence to sing softly in your heart, then come in this caravan of untold, silent love story ...

For the month of October every monday we practise Sufi meditation practises. Every session will have an unique flow with assorted sufi awareness practises coming from various Sufi Mystics and practises. These techniques were practiced by different sufi mystics in different times. Here we practise various sufi meditations techniques together in a group and create an experience where in one melts in remembrance of the divine to forget the individual ego.

Prayer is considered an essential Sufi practice, emphasizing the human need for expression.This meditation technique offers a powerful method to connect yourself with the cosmos and feell the immense strength rising out of this meeting.

As you go on with the 3 stages of this meditation. You simply allow yourself to go into the practise and become a vehicle to allow the divine energy to unite. This merging with energy is PRAYER. It changes you and when you change the whole existence changes.

As Osho Says "Prayer simply means gratitude, thankfulness. It is not a demand, it is not a desire. And if you desire anything, then it is not prayer" Prayer is one of the indefinables, because prayer is the fragrance of love.

Even love is indefinable. Love is a flower, tangible, you can see it, you can touch it, you can smell it, you can feel it. You can close your eyes and you can touch the texture of the flower, the softness of it, you can see the beauty of it; it is visible. But prayer is the fragrance released to the winds, offered to the sky. It becomes even more indefinable because you cannot see it, you cannot touch it.

You can only have a very subtle relationship with it, not one of words, not one of philosophy, not one of theology—only the silence of your heart, the utter silence of your heart, can have a little glimpse of it, of what it is.Prayer is a state of simplicity. It is NOT of words but of silence.

The river disappearing into the ocean is prayer. The dewdrop slipping from the lotus leaf into the lake is prayer. Seeing the early morning sun and you are silent, and something starts rising in you too—that is prayer. A bird on the wing, and you are on the wing; you forget that you are separate—THAT is prayer. Wherever separation disappears, prayer appears. When you become one with the whole of existence, that is prayer.

Ego is a state of no-prayer: egolessness is a state of prayer. It is not a dialogue, it is not even a monologue. It has nothing to do with words; it is wordless silence. It is an open, silent sky; with no clouds, no thoughts

In prayer you are not: in prayer He is!!
