Haji Syed Salman Chishty and James Bötkös

Haji Syed Salman Chishty is the most elegant man I have ever met in my life. His natural elegance does not really come from his clothing, rather from his soul. An elegance of soul which is the fruit of decades of spiritual tradition. He invited me to his city of Ajmer, in Rajasthan. Perhaps the beginning of a new spiritual adventure?

Haji Syed Salman Chishty is born and raised among the family of Chishty Sufi Community of Ajmer Sharif who are the hereditary custodian of the 11th century Sufi Shrine of Hazrat Khawaja Moinuddin Hasan Chishty. His family has been serving at the Dargah Ajmer Sharif from last 800 years as the Keys of the blessed Sufi Shrine has been passed on from generation to generation.

He is engaged in a research studies on World Sufi Traditions and their impact on different countries and their culture and traditions and vice-versa.

The greatest principle of Sufism is « Ishq Allah, Ma’bud Allah » (God is love, lover and beloved)

Sufism is rightly been called the spirit of Islam, as well as the pure essence of all religions and philosophies. Many Sufi saints have attained what is known as God-consciousness, which is the most all-inclusive realization of the meaning of the word « good » attainable by man. Sufis have in many cases are known to have realized and shown the greatest perfection in humanity and creating harmony among the human civilizations.
