If you like simple but powerful poetry, this may just be what you're looking for. Although many verses have religious connotations, I know many people who I have shared this with on my travels, from various backgrounds, have enjoyed the words of Rumi
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.
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.
I found this an intersting book about Rumi and his writings, especially so since I have just returned from visiting Konya, where his mausoleum and monastery museum is. This book complements Baldock's 'The Essence of Sufism'. Read both to get a good basic understanding of Sufism.
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.
