Dervish Healing Order
End Of Life Prayers
by Hazrat Inayat Khan (as given by Murshida Vera Corda)

O Thou the cause and effect of the whole universe,
The Source from which we have come
And the Goal towards which all are bound,
Receive the soul of John Dear which now
is enfolded in Thy parental arms.
May Thy forgiving Glance heal his heart.
Lift him from the denseness of the earth,
surround him with the light of Thine own Spirit,

Raise him up to the heaven which is his true dwelling-place.
We pray Thee, grant him the blessing of Thy most exalted Presence.
May his life on earth become as a dream to his awakening Soul,
And let his thirsting eyes behold the glorious vision of Thy Sunshine.
— Amen


Heal John Dear’s spirit of all the wounds that his heart
has suffered through this life of limitation on earth.
Purify his heart with Thy Divine Light,
And send upon his Spirit Thy mercy, Thy compassion, and Thy Peace.
— Amen

Death takes away the weariness of life, and the soul begins life anew.

Death is a sleep from which the soul wakes in the hereafter.

Death is the crucifixion, after which follows the resurrection.

Death is the night after which the day begins.

It is death which dies, not life.

The life everlasting is hidden in the heart of death.
