Alone in Gathering

These people (of Allah) have a peculiar state. This is called alone in gathering (khilwat dar anjuman). Those who have established Lord Almighty is their hearts have this state. Khwaja Sahab (RA) was in a sitting (majlis). Gnostic poetry was going on. Suddenly he stopped and asked the others present there as to how much Remembrance of Lord they had done during the sitting? People were silent. How is it possible to indulge in Remembrance during such ecstatic sitting? Khwaja Sahab (RA) said that all praise to Lord Most High I have done so many thousand rounds of remembering.
