Last of six films: The Inner Life
The inner life of Islam is the mystical path known as Sufism. Probably a majority of the poets of the Islamic world, and a great many of the finest musicians, architects and even scientists, have been Sufis, or strongly influenced by Sufism.
This film includes a beautiful Persian garden of the 17th century, designed by a great Sufi and itself a symbol of the inner life; the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem, the site of Muhammed's great mystical experience, the Night Journey; and examples of Sufi practice and teaching in Egypt, Morocco and Iran. It ends in India, where the anniversary of one of the great Sufi saints of the past is celebrated with passionate devotional songs and music, which can lift the audience into ecstasy.
