Positive vibrations come to Brighton on Friday night in the form of Sheikh Burhanuddin Herrmann.

The colourful and mystic Sufi sheikh, or spiritual guide, will be leading an interactive musical gathering at Brighton Unitarian Church entitled 'Tonight the subject is Love' before a London date the following day.

With a strong world-wide following, the German-born spiritual leader has been travelling the globe for thirty years as a wandering dervish and disciple of his late master, Mawlana Sheikh Nazim Adil Al-Haqqani, Grand Master of the ancient Naqshbandi Sufi Order.

Sheikh Burhanuddin believes that the experience of living joyfully is each human being's birthright and that it can be attained only through recognising one's true nature.

Speaking to The Argus before his Brighton event, he said: "People chase passing happiness outside of themselves and it ends in suffering. If only they could recognise that the vibration of love and joy is within each one of us, it is our authentic being.

"This way of the heart is the only one that can lead us beyond the illusion of fear and suffering to the truth of our being - to joy, to peace, to harmony and ultimately to freedom."

Tonight The Subject Is Love is held this Friday, June 27, from 7.30 -10.30pm at the Brighton Unitarian Church, New Road, Brighton BN1 1UF.

All monetary contributions welcome.

FInd peace within your own heart and you won't be judgemental on account of a turban and a beard. The common understanding of 'religion' is organised thought. Sufism transcends all religion and is not about indoctrination. On the contrary, it is about experiencing your own truth within you as a divine human being so that you can live in joy instead of suffering. Why not face yourself Stevo and come along for the experiential ride?

My life was very peaceful, thanks, before I realised what islam is all about.

I was also working in London on 7/7....I trust you've erased day that from your memory?

Shame on anyone who attends these events.

The friend I'm talking to right now on the telephone and is coming to the meeting was on that bus that got blown up. She jumped off a few seconds before .... She began 'finding herself'after this experience and now recognises each human being as a unique expression of God. Of course there are extremists in all areas. The challenge is to see the reality through the illusion.

All religions are barbarous because they are fear based and indoctrinate. Life is subjective, not objective. It is the mind that causes suffering yet we have the choice to choose joy, which is what this guy is about.

And yes, my best friend was on that bus. It has been well documented. As I said, the experience led her towards finding her reality in this world.

So she converted to the religion of those who tried to kill her because of their religion?

Did the blast affect her sanity?

Anagrams have to make something halfway comprehensible to even stand a chance of being amusing. So this one's a fail.....
