chi barkay Serigne Saliou !!!
The only way out of the matrix, is to find One Hu Is out of the matrix. The way of the sufi is realization through initiation. according to sufi doctrine “shaytan is the cheikh of the seeker who has no cheikh.” in the past two weeks eye have traveled from atlanta, to new york leading sufi circles of teaching, learning and zikr. al hum do li la in the past 2 weeks eye have witnessed 2 people take shahadah and 4 seekers take bayat with our sufi order. because of this it is time to share some inner teachings about the bayat with Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba through the living master Cheikh Bethio Thioune.
In one of the circles eye was asked Hu is the Insan Kamil (universal man) of this time period? my answer was ” the only true master that i know in this time period is my cheikh, Cheikh Bethio.” taking bayat through His barakah ( blessing) is not the same as taking initiation with any other cheikh from our order. HE is the only living master of our order that was invested as a Cheikh by His cheikh, Serigne Saliou Mbacke. the other cheikhs in our order are cheikhs by bloodline, family relation to Cheikh Ahmadou Bamba or Cheikh Ibra Fall. Cheikh Betchio once asked “would you let the son of a doctor do an operation on you?” a true master is One Hu was invested to be a master by His or Her master. just because your grandfather was a master of the way does NOT make you a master of the way.
Serigne Saliou has said to Cheikh Bethio “my yo, yie man.” this means “I am you, you are me.” personally i was in Touba Senegal on several occasions with Serigne Saliou and Cheikh Bethio when Serigne Saliou announced “whoever takes bayat with you, it is the same as if they take bayat with me.” In 2003 i was in Touba when Cheikh Bethio asked Serigne Saliou “what does a disciple receive when they take bayat with me?” Serigne Saliou said “the hands of Allah descend to accept the bayat.” this is in reference to the verse in Quran in surah 48 the Victory where Allah says “the hand of Allah is over their hands” when the bayat is given.
wa min Allah tawfiq- and from Allah success !!!
