Irina Tweedie Story

Views: 255
Irina Tweedie was rejected by her Master in India, on the basis that she was female. Nonetheless, she stayed and observed, listened to him with male students. At his feet, silently, over a long period of time, they became very close.

  • I made a correction to the video, Ron! thanks for the info.

  • Hmmm. I guess's website is wrong. I got the information from there. Very interesting. I have been told to write, also...a diary of spiritual experiences. I will have to check out "Daughter of Fire." Thank you for the information.

  • The blurb about Irina Tweedie posted above is not correct.
    Her Master, B'hai Sahib, accepted her as a student immediately,
    from the first day he met her, without any conditions or limitations.
    And he subjected her to the most complete, intense training he had ever given anyone, male or female.
    Before he died, he said, when the sun sets, the moon can be seen:
    a clear indication that he regarded her as his successor. Indeed, she became the first person to bring his Naqshmandi line of Sufism to the West, where she developed a large following. (Her successor, who was with her in England for 20 years, is Llewellyn Vaughn-Lee; he currently runs the Golden Sufi Center north
    of San Francisco.) Nor did she sit silently and observe; rather, she was quite outspoken, a trait that she
    needed to overcome, not because she was a woman but because it came from the ego, which the training
    is designed to dissolve. Her experiences with B'hai Sahib are exhaustively detailed in her 800-page book about the training, called Daughter of Fire, which he told her to write.
