How Will Wisdom BenefitYou?

Learning wisdom is not like buying a car. You can't see wisdom, at least not with your eyes. You can't feel wisdom, at least not with your hands. Wisdom comes through experience, guidance and understanding. There is something in you, in everyone that recognizes and connects with it. Wisdom teaches us how not to make the same mistakes over and over again expecting different results.

One way to learn is from teachers, and that is how I began my journey back in 1980. I was introduced to the Sufi Saint, Bawa Muhaiyadden who helped me turn my life around and become all that I am today. To read Siti's personal story click here.

Muhammad Raheem Bawa Muhaiyaddeen was a revered Sufi saint from the island of Sri Lanka who shared his knowledge and experience with people of every race and religion and from all parts of the world. He belonged to the Qadri order of sufism. He first came to the United States in 1971 and established The Bawa Muhaiyaddeen Fellowship of North America in Philadelphia . Since then branches have spread throughout the United States and Canada , as well as in Sri Lanka , Australia and the UK.

Little is known of his early personal history. Records of his life began in the early 1900s when religious pilgrims traveling through the jungles of Sri Lanka first caught glimpse of a holy man. The depth of divine knowledge he imparted for the benefit of others overwhelmed them. 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, quoting him as saying that when the Iranians understand the Koran "they will release the hostages immediately." Thousands more were touched by his wise words when interviewed in Psychology Today, the Harvard Divinity Bulletin, the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Pittsburgh Press. Wherever he went, he tirelessly answered the many personal and mystical questions that people brought to him until his death on December 8th, 1986.

The name Muhaiyaddeen literally means 'the giver of life to the true belief.' And indeed Bawa Muhaiyaddeen did spend his life awakening and strengthening faith in God within people's hearts. Though he was an unlettered man, he was able to guide and inspire people from all walks of life. For fifteen years, M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen authored over twenty books and the one I want to share with you is

The Golden Words

Below are a few examples of the 975 wisdom quotes and sayings:


"Oh man, do not intend harm to others
Or it will cause untold harm to you."


"Do not cause hurt to the hearts of others
Dispel the disease in your heart
Which desires to hurt.
Great benefit will come to you
And bring peace into your life."

"Do not cry for money,
It will ruin your qualities.
Cry and search for God's qualities,
The qualities that will destroy
The corpse of the karma of your birth
And make your life eternal."
