Beauty of the poetry
Beauty of the word love that is divinity
Impossible to put away even after you have read it several times
Opens the eye of the heart to the light of the divine
Opens the ears of the heart to the music the sound of divine love

What can I say there are no words to describe this poetry. It took me from one dimension to another. Absolutely wonderful, highly recommended.

This here is an okay version of the masnavi. It has a few notes to help the reader gain a better understanding but this version is overshadowed by its numerous flaws.

This is an 1898 translation and so it is really outdated. This book is also incomplete as it even tells you towards the end! As well as this, there are no additional notes or biographical info regarding pertaining things mentioned in the text so so things may be difficult to grasp who Rumi is referring to.

Overall, this is simply just an outdated translation that needs to be revised. It's certainly enjoyable as any literature written by the great saint Rumi but it is lacking in modern day features.

Buy at your own risk of satisfaction.

If you are a spiritual seeker and you've never met Rumi before now is you time. He is the greatest spiritual poet. I knew nothing about Sufism before I read his work but knew that he had connected with the Beloved. Lovely poetry which will sit in yoyr heart amd mind forever

I am very happy with the translation, makes such complex spiritual experience to be understood.

I found it fascinating how he begins a story, then moves on to a story within that story, and again moves to another within that one. Through this composition style, the poet’s personal voice comes through to his audience. It is truly wonderful.

Very grateful to whoever transferred the Masnavi to kindle. Incredibly interesting and inspiring book; one of the most impressive I have ever read. There is such variety in content. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

I'm still working my way through this long book but find it fascinating. So far it's a wonderful mixture of the Song of Solomon, Aesop's Fables and mysticism. It's one to keep and needs careful reading.
