The Invocation


When I attended the International Sufi Summer School in Katwijk, the Netherlands, a view years ago, one of the afternoon sessions was started with the invocation, all participants standing in a circle. Then a representative of each of the attending countries spoke the invocation: "Towards the One, ... ", in their own language and their compatriots joined them. This appeared an enormous impressive happening to me, which moved me to tears. I do not know what exactly happened but there was such a strong feeling of connection and connectedness that I never experienced before.

Now, working on a sermon on the theme of  'Connectedness' I thought of collecting the invocation in as many languages as possible and make it available to the Sufi community and all those who might be inspired by it.

I thank all those who were so kind to supply me with the texts of the invocation in their own language !

If your language is not among them I would appreciate if you could send the text of the invocation in your own language to me so that I can put it on this page.


My e-mail adress is at the bottom of the page.

Maori Invocation

E mihi ana ki te kotahitanga tapu.

Ko ia hoki te tino taumata o te aroha,

O te whakaaro tahi me te ataahua.

Kaore he tangata ko atu i a ia.

I whakakotahitia ki nga wairua turama katoa.

Ko ratou nei te whakatinanatanga

 o ratou kua whetu rangitia

O te ngakau arataki
