This amazing book, written in 1923, reflects to effects of sound and vibration in all aspects of humanity. Much in line with 21st century emerging string theories where matter formed from vibration, Inayat Khan exposes vibration nature of all matter in internal and external planes of sound existence covering matter, space, human soul, emotion and psychic with keen reflection on collective impression. Truly exceptional deed from one of the India's most praised sitar players of 18th century and a mature reflection of first Sufism promoter in the western culture.
