    I am going to put this on in a little while. Its the full interview Oprah did on Supersoul (OWN program) with Llewellyn Vaughn Lee.

    http://www.oprah.com/own-super-soul-sunday/Full-Episode-Oprah-and-Llewellyn-Vaughan-Lee-Video

    Llewellyn Vaughn Lee is the sheikh of the Naqshbandi lineage which includes Irina Tweedie (she learned from a Hindu Sufi). Link to Golden Sufi site: http://www.goldensufi.org/

    He is a very sober personality, but very wise and very skilled at communicating in an understandable way regarding Sufi beliefs.

    If you watch it, let me know what you think of it. I am part of 2 Sufi communities so this is really up my alley. What I find is that the kind of Sufism practiced by his tariqa, actually has a lot that resonates with Sikhi. A different perspective, but Sikhs and Sufis like Llewellyn Vaughn Lee definitely can relate spiritually to each other. IMHO

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
