Contemplation and Reflection: Aga Khan Museum and Ismaili Centre, Toronto – Beacons of Light

“[The] use of light speaks to us of the Divine Light of the Creator, reflected in the glow of individual human inspiration and vibrant, transparent community.

As the poet Rumi has written: ‘The light that lights the eye is also the light of the heart … but the light that lights the heart is the Light of God.’”

– His Highness Prince Karim Aga Khan
Foundation Ceremony of the Ismaili Centre, Toronto, Aga Khan Museum and their Park
