Maktab Tarighat Oveyssi (M.T.O.) Shahmaghsoudi®, School of Islamic Sufism®, is an international non-profit organization with centres spanning five continents, including more than 500,000 students worldwide. It dates back 1400 years to the time of Holy Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him), and Amir-al Mo’menin Ali (the first Imam of the Shi’a). The founder of the school is Hazrat Oveys Gharani, who lived at the time of the Holy Prophet, and whose way of inward cognition was approved by the prophet of Islam.
The inspired and revealed spiritual knowledge has been passed down from the time of Hazrat Oveys to Hazrat Salaheddin Ali Nader Angha, the present master of the school, through an unbroken succession of Masters who are well known by historians and scholars. Theses Sufi Masters have taught students not to be followers, but to be masters of their own lives through self-knowledge. You can find more information at www.mto.org
