Product Description

Product Description

Get drunk on Love, for Love is all that exists.
Unless you make Love your business,
you will not be admitted to the Beloved.
(Divan-i Shams-i Tabriz 455:A1:54)

The thirteenth-century saint Jalaluddin Rumi has been called the greatest mystical poet of any age, and his work compared to that of Dante and Shakespeare. Over a period of 25 years he composed over 70,000 verses of poetry on the subjects of divine love, mystic passion and ecstatic illumination.

Rumi was also a master story-teller, as this comprehensive exploration of his work so rewardingly reveals. Primarily an introduction to Rumi and the path of self-surrender, it is arranged in such a way that it guides the reader from the poet’s outer, historical world to the inner, spiritual essence of his teaching.

The Essence of Rumi offers us the opportunity to overcome the limitations of our human view of the world and transform our sensory eye into the poet’s all-seeing Ocean of Reality.

Synopsis

Looks at the life and works of the thirteenth-century Sufi mystic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfaction Guaranteed 14 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback
This Author was recommended to me and I have to say I had 'reservations' about the impact of the content, for me. I was therefore very gratified to find that my apprehensions were unfounded. I had been unsure that anyone, other than an 'Eastern' expert, could write with such authority and knowledge on this subject. The book I recieved was in 'mint' condition. Thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Purely simply genius 18 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rumi is someone I think of as the quiet man of the world of the wise. Considered a poet and a spiritualist this is reflected in his writings. I find his words as relevant today as they were when he originally wrote them centuries ago. Rumi is a star by my reckoning, a man I would love to meet and speak with at length.
Peace.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book spoke to me on so many different levels. I really enjoyed the mix of the present love affair with Rumi's greatest spiritual love story in the past. His poems and teachings are to be enjoyed and sought out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essence of spirituality 4 Jun 2013
By Pete Ashly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow, fantastic. John's words come in like a breath of fresh air from a clear blue sky to softly flutter the veils of misunderstanding, so that we may glimpse the inner beauty of the the most treasured jewels of human spirit. Regardless of your beliefs or motivations for reading, you should find John's words appealing, like the way a good chef works conservatively with the small amounts of the finest ingredients to most favorably show off their excellent character.

Do not be put off by the low number of reviews or price of this book. As they say, "the best things in life are free" and this work speaks for itself as a true labor of love and compassion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rumi - the man and the spiritual being 7 Nov 2013
By mrpops - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most interesting - a sensitive account of the historical aspects combined with a gentle introduction to the spiritual Rumi. I read this while in Turkey and found it really added to the overall experience I had of the Sufi movement there.
