Maktab Tarighat Oveyssi School of Islamic Sufism dates back to the beginning of Islam and has since been sustained and further developed by an unbroken succession of Sufi teachers. The teachings of the Sufi Masters are based on the traditions of the founder, Oveys Gharani. Today, MTO® is a modern and internationally organized religious community comprised of individuals who recognize that Islam is not a religion of animosity but that of inner cognition, Love and Freedom.
