Masters of the Path

Divergent sufi orders are but branches of a single tree of loving-kindness. If one order denies or repudiates another, it only repudiates itself. What follows is the sisilah or chain of the Nimatuallhi Sufi Order – the initiatory succession of sufi masters whose esoteric teaching is transmitted and continued today by our current master, Reza ‘Ali Shah (Dr. Alireza Nurbakhsh).
