Tierno Bokar (1875-1939), African mystic and Muslim spiritual teacher, was remarkable for the drama of his life story (which was made into a recent play directed by Peter Brook). His message of religious tolerance and universal love is profoundly important in a world where different faiths are often at odds with each other.
