Murshid reads undisclosed Sufi poetry, then ends one class and resumes with a class for disciples. He offers Buddha’s Yoga in a “Darshan” form, offers “dot and circle” concentration, and breath practice.
0:33—“… Difference, they take Mohammed as the last one of these great divine messengers. Now last in a certain sense. There’s always a representative of divinity on earth in some form always. Sometimes he’s known, most he isn’t known. If he told people, they wouldn’t believe him anyway so it doesn’t make any difference. They’d want a miracle from him. A miracle would be to change the political order my particular way.”

30:00—“I‘m going to talk and be damned, tonight I don’t care, because you see, there are no barriers; people make barriers where they don’t exist. And this line between this world and the next, the only way I’m going to take you into it—through the breath, build up your immortality. And the next thing, is God willing, you have communion with the saints without traveling…. That’s why I want to teach you, and show you how to get there, by these breathing practices, because love and joy and peace belong to immortality, they don’t belong to mortality.”
