Shaykh Burhanuddin Herrmann

what si the dhikr

Shaykh Burhanuddin is a thoroughly modern mystic of ancient tradition, called onto the Sufi path at a tender age.

He received direct transmission of the Naqshbandi Sufi Order, one of the most ancient and authoritative of forty existing Sufi Orders, known variously through the ages as the ‘School of the Masters of Wisdom’ and the ‘Path of Love’. Shaykh Burhanuddin first met his future guide, the Grand Master Maulana Shaykh Nazim al Haqqani ar Rabbani, may his secret be sanctified, when he invited him to his German home town. So overwhelmed was the nineteen-year-old youngster by the powerful presence of this master, world guide of the order, that he fainted in the street. Henceforth he was constantly at his beloved Master’s side, accompanying him around the world spreading the particular Sufi touch of grace and love.

“Go around! From north to south, from east to west! Find companions longing to walk together with us along the way of love, service, truth and simplicity. Serve them in their spiritual needs!”. This had been the Master’s order.

And this radical lover of the Divine has continued to do just that, for over thirty years by now, leading awakening gatherings in Argentina and Brazil, through Europe, reaching out to India and the Far East.

As a wandering dervish and an appointed shaykh (spiritual guide), Shaykh Burhanuddin is traveling around the world, inviting people to awaken to the meaning and purpose of their lives, to remember their higher origin and destination that is waiting for them and to help them live peaceful, happy and grateful lives of the heart.

Shaykh Burhanuddin is also a singer, musician, composer, and author of three books on Sufism: ‘Il Cammello Sul Tetto’ (The Camel On The Roof), ‘Il Derviscio Metropolitano’ (The Metropolitan Dervish) and ‘Il Sufismo’ (Sufism).
