Included in this section are a selection of videos intended to introduce the viewer to Sufism (i.e. the Interviews with Dr. Javad Nurbaksh), live performances of Sufi Music by members of the Order from around the world, and samples of meaningful music that members have posted on YouTube. The heartfelt hope is that the videos serve as an additional way, beyond the written content, to get a 'flavor' for the Sufi Path.
This series of videos are a final interview with Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh, Master of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order for over 50 years. In these videos, Dr. Nurbakhsh is seated with his heir and successor, Dr. Alireza Nurbakhsh, the present Master of the Nimatullahi order. The interview was conducted in March 2008, by filmmaker Llew Smith as part of a prospective documentary film on the subject of mystical experience. Dr. Nurbakhsh expresses the limitation of discourse as it relates to inner experience and the peripheral place of religious piety. Answering questions about many seemingly pertinent or interesting topics, with insistence on the non-intellectual, immediate experience in Love - of the Truth.
Music & Poetry Compilations
Members of the Nimatullahi Sufi order have lovingly created this series of video compilations of music and poetry. Each one is a personal expression composed with heartfelt devotion to the pursuit of love and truth. While the imagery is personal, the poetry represents selections from our beloved former Master, Dr. Javad Nurbakhsh.
