The Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan

The moral is rather to be harmful to the lower creation for the sake of the higher, rather to be harmful to the animal than to man.

  • If a man has stolen your dog, rather let him have the dog, than have him sent to prison, because the man is more valuable than the dog.
  • If your child has hurt the cat a little, and if you shake the child and hurt it, it is a mistake, because the child is of more value than the cat.
  • If an animal has eaten your corn, your flowers and fruits, let the corn go, do not break the back of the animal.
