The Universal Worship
The Universal Worship was the inspiration of Hazrat Inayat Khan, a mystic scholar and musician who brought Universal Sufism to the West from India. He created a service wherein the followers of any of the world’s religions could feel at home. The first service was celebrated in 1921 and since that time has been held in many countries around the world. Temples dedicated to the Universal Worship, called Universels, have been built in Katwijk, Holland; Suresnes, France; Bothell WA, USA; and Cape Town, South Africa. Universal Worship has participated in the Parliament of World Religions held in Barcelona (2004), Salt Lake City (2015) and Toronto, Canada (2018). Hazrat Inayat Khan’s work was continued by his son, Pir Vilayat Khan, and currently by his grandson, Pir Zia Khan.
