Hazrat Inayat Khan – Sufi Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882-1927) came to the West from India in 1910 to harmonize the East and the West with music and to spread the wisdom of Sufism. His message was always aimed at unity, bringing together all humanity, rising above the differences and distinctions that have separated us. Original painting is oil on canvas, 20” x 24”.
Fatima Rigsby has been drawing since early childhood and began painting in 1985. These paintings are from a series of darshan (described as an “auspicious sight” of a holy person, which bestows merit on the person who is seen) and dervish paintings done over a period from 1990 – 2000.
Fatima has been a friend of Lama Foundation since 1971. She was a resident at Lama in 1999 – 2001 and has continued to serve Lama in many ways from her home in Taos, NM.
