Bawa Muhaiyaddeen: Make God's justice into your justice

Bawa Muhaiyaddeen: Make God's justice into your justice
 
Photo: Muhammad Raheem Bawa Muhaiyaddeen, a Sufi mystic, can best be remembered for his efforts to bring unity through understanding to the faithful of all religions. Little is known of his early personal history. Records of his life began in the early 1900's when religious pilgrims traveling through the jungles of Sri Lanka first caught glimpse of a holy man. They were overwhelmed by the depth of divine knowledge that he imparted. Sometime later a pilgrim invited him to a nearby village, and with that began his public life as a teacher of wisdom. Throughout Sri Lanka, people from all religious and ethnic traditions would listen to his public discourses. Many consulted him on how to conduct life's affairs, including public figures, politicians, the poor, and the learned. In 1971 Bawa Muhaiyaddeen accepted an invitation to visit the United States. Here, once again, people from all religious, social and ethnic backgrounds would join to hear him speak. Across the United States, Canada and England, he won recognition from religious scholars, journalists, educators and world leaders. The United Nation's Assistant Secretary General, Robert Muller, asked for Bawa Muhaiyaddeen's guidance on behalf of all mankind. Time Magazine turned to him for clarification during the hostage crisis in 1980. Thousands more were touched by his wise words when interviewed in Psychology Today, the Harvard Divinity Bulletin, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Pittsburgh Press.

Make God’s justice into your justice
Make God’s qualities into your qualities
Make God’s actions into your actions
Make God’s conduct into your conduct
Let your love be God’s love for all
Make God’s patience into your patience
Make God’s intentions the intentions in your life.
In this way, your life will attain its completion.
You will be a tree of peace,
giving fruits containing the nectar of grace that will soothe
the hunger for wisdom in your fellow being.
