Pir Shabda Kahn received his root training in the sufi lineage of Pir-o-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan beginning in 1969, as a disciple of Murshid Samuel Lewis. Shabda is currently the Pir (spiritual director) of the Sufi Ruhaniat International. In 1972 Shabda met his second great teacher, the late Master Singer, Pandit Pran Nath, and began the daily practice of North Indian classical vocal music in the Kirana style. He now teaches vocal music and performs Raga singing and is the director of the Chisti Sabri School of Music. He worked closely with the great American Mystic Joe Miller. He is also a disciple of the illustrious Tibetan Buddhist Master, the 12th Tai Situpa Rinpoche. Shabda brings warmth, humor, and clarity in his efforts to help seekers on their own personal Path to Awakening.
