A must reading for all philsophy students or spiritual seekers...
The insights given in this book are truly transformational. Highly reccommended.
The work of Mr. Barks is truly outstanding as usual.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Drowned Book 7 Jan 2010
By Nyx - Published on Amazon.com
The book was beautifully put together and well thought out.
Good for those who have little or a lot of Rumi knowledge.
A great many of the quotes will stick with you long after you've read the book.

Very re-readable, reasonably priced and unforgettable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coleman Barks does it again! 5 Jan 2007
By Lisa Bevis - Published on Amazon.com
As always, Coleman Barks gives us a beautifully inspirational book to wake up to, travel with or turn to when we forget how wonderful God is. If you love his books on Rumi you will love this one too.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent and essential supplement... 18 Sep 2006
By baphomette de medici - Published on Amazon.com
great to just pick up and randomly read.

the notes in the back, as with all coleman barks' notes, get to the crux of the matter in the usual serpentine, raconteuring way...recommended!

An essential part of the Sufi mystics library collection, this book is an aid to seeing the Muslim tradition in a more positive light.
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. 8 Sep 2012

Format:Kindle Edition
Such beauty. I could read this book over and over for the rest of my life and still be awestruck at the power, awe, humility, and passion in each and every single poem.
