Murshid by Mansur Johnson | a unique adventure of spiritual discovery

Otis B. Johnson was a young college professor of English in the 1960s when he joined the exodus of hippies to California to meet someone his friend said could taken them where they wanted to go fastest. Where did they want to go? - They wanted to meet the divinity, obtain God-consciousness, get enlightened, find love, experience samadhi, in short- they didn't know for sure.

What happened? - Otis B. Johnson became Mansur Johnson during a three year encounter with the world's first Guru-Roshi-Murshid, Samuel L. Lewis.

God wanted to put his vicegerance on earth, such was the Divine plan. He planned to establish Kingdom of God here, through His own image impressed upon Adam. But not all men can realize inside of them this image of God. Only on rare occasions such blessed persons are found on earth visiting time to time. American Sufi Samuel L. Lewis (October 18, 1896–January 15, 1971) is one of such rare soul that reflected the divine image so beautifully. (read more about Samuel L. Lewis via wikipedia, also via marinsufis site, via ruhaniyat.)

The Book Murshid by Mansur Johnson is a personal memoir of life with American Sufi Samuel L. Lewis. Samuel, who founded the Dances of Universal Peace movement. He was also known under his Sufi name Sufi Ahmed Murad Chisti and was addressed by his mureeds and others as Murshid. This is an arabic word that means, "Exalted Teacher." In the popular press he was sometimes known as Sufi Sam.

Murshid in intimate detail shows how Samuel L. Lewis, the first western born Sufi Teacher, Zen master and practitioner of Indian cosmic metaphysics, accomplished his life's purpose. Its a PeaceWorks Publications. Read details about the book here.
