Book Description

From Madonna to Deepak Chopra, celebrities have been recording and embracing Rumi's poetry for the past two decades, creating a resurgence of interest in this 14th century Sufi mystic.

Rumi's Little Book of Life is a beautiful collection of 196 poems by Rumi, previously unavailable in English. Translated by native Persian speakers, Maryam Mafi and Azima Melita Kolin, this collection will appeal to Rumi lovers everywhere.

This collection of mystical poetry focuses on one of life's core issues: coming to grips with the inner life. During the course of life, each of us is engaged on an inner journey. Rumi's Little Book of Life is a guidebook for that journey. The poetry is a companion for those who consciously enter the inner world to explore the gardens within--out of the everyday "world of dust"--through an ascending hierarchy that restores one's soul to the heart; the heart of the spirit; and in finding spirit, transcending all.

Product Description

Review

What is it about this 13th-century Persian poet and Sufi mystic that continues to captivate us? So asks the Iranian academic, Narguess Farzad, in her introduction to this new collection, beautifully and lucidly translated by Maryam Mafi and Azima Melita Kolin. Divided into three sections soul, heart and spirit, this book more than answers her question. From playful to pastoral, from majestic metaphysical poetry to paeans to love, they show that Rumi's God lay not in the mosque or temple but within the soul. --Arifa Akbar-The Independent- 1st Feb 2013

About the Author

Maryam Mafi, born and raised in Iran, is an experienced Persian translator. Azima Melita Kolin is a poet, concert pianist and artist, who studied in Rome and Geneva.

Beautiful heart felt poetry that transcends and wraps you in the true beauty of being. Again a gift for a young student who has thoroughly enjoyed being introduced to Rumi and is now sharing with her friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poetry to inspire! 14 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rumi is well known, but this little book contains many of his poems. Let a page fall open where it will or select a particular favourite - both methods work equally well. Read and enjoy!
