About the Foundation
The Nekbakht Foundation was created by Nekbakht Furnée in 1950 to carry on the work entrusted to her by Pir O Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan. She describes her commission by Murshid as keeper of the Biographical Department as follows: ".... Murshid handed me several objects and papers. Each time there was again something which Murshid liked to add to one of these collections, Murshid handed it to me, simply saying: ‘Keep it, for the Biographical Department.’ And I kept it . . . . " For more information about Nekbakht Furnée and the people who continued her work go to Archives.
The Nekbakht Foundation houses the archives of Pir O Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan's lectures, a substantial library and historical documents relating to the organisations created by Pir O Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan. The Foundation aims to act as a resource for scholars and mureeds. Since 1982 the Foundation has been engaged in the production of the complete works of Pir-O-Murshid Hazrat Inayat Khan. The aim in doing this is threefold:
|-||To safeguard for posterity the data gathered together by Nekbakht Furnée, |
|pupil and secretary of Inayat Khan, to whom he entrusted this task.|
|-||To serve as the basis for future publications.|
|-||To make the original versions of Inayat Khan’s words available to pupils and other interested persons.|
We are grateful for the work of, and collaboration with, colleagues of the archives of the other Hazrati organisations.
