Welcome to the Petama Project, bienvenidos!

The Petama Project is a working concept, which received its first shape in 1978 and since then tried to find answers to the deep questions of today's life, where structures in our individual life and society seem to guarantee an outer well-being, and the world nevertheless is not growing towards what humanity could be. The teachings and Life work of Hazrat Inayat Khan are keys to many of these questions. (Click on the links)

The Petama Project offers musical teachings, concerts and events, a bookshop, videos, meditations and studies of old Sufi teachings, which touch us as deeply today, as they have done for a thousand years, workshops about topics of everyday life, examples of what is called 'The Art of Personality'. One of his first students, Raden Ayou Jodjana, created a masterpiece herein. Please follow reports under petamablog. And here is 'Sohbet of the Week', a new form of Sufi stories.

Hazrat Inayat Khan (1882 - 1927) has given the world a wide range of great teachings, the 'Bowl of Saki' is a cycle of aphorisms, one for each day of the year. Short daily reflections on his teachings you can find by clicking on this notice here.

Bowl of Saki - Schale des Saki - Cuenco del Saki 21 November

The wave is the sea itself; yet, 
when it rises in the form of a wave, it is the  wave; 
and when you look at the whole of it, it is the sea.
Die Welle ist das Meer selbst, doch 
wenn sie sich in der Form einer Welle erhebt, ist sie die Welle, 
und wenn wir das Ganze betrachten, ist sie das Meer.
La ola es el  mismo mar; 
pero si se levanta en forma de ola, es  la ola; 
y si tu miras la todalidad, es el mar.
