1st Sufi Saint and Muslim Shrine of America

Bawa"You must place your faith in the one indestructible, imperishable God. To do this, you must stop depending on the kings, forces, and armies within you. When you give up all this and stand defenseless and alone, saying, O God, it is all Your will! The sheikh (spiritual guide) will stand by your side. It is only when you surrender to God that the sheikh, who is the explaining wisdom of the Qutbiyyat (Divine Gnosis, Primordial Buddha nature) which guides you on the path of God, will come to stand by your side. 'Son' he will say, 'Now you are ready. Come, let us go'." - Bawa Muhaiyaddeen

Some 40 miles from Philadelphia, among the rolling hills and tall trees of Chester County, is a Mazar (a shrine), the resting place of Muhammad Raheem Bawa Muhaiyaddeen, the Sufi saint and founder of the Bawa Muhaiyaddeen Fellowship, who left his physical body in 1986.

Bawa Mazar ShrineThis video is a 2 part series for Voice of America explores this Muslim shrine, the first in the United States. Since its dedication it has become an important destination for pilgrims from all over the world who wish to pay their respects to the Sufi saint. The first part talks about the "Mazar" (the shrine built by his followers in his memory) and the second part takes the viewers to his Mosque and talks about the Bawa Muhaiyaddeen fellowship.

Bawa Muhaiyaddeen Mazar PhiladelphiaAlthough the narration is in Urdu language, but inside the interviews of students of Bawa are in English, worth listening. There students share about Bawa's coming to US from Sri Lanka, how it was to be with him and how their intense mystical or otherwise experiences were interpreted by Bawa's tremendous wisdom.
