Everyone and everything perishes, but celebration in your state of oneness is forever, forever, forever. Athirteenth-century Sufi mystic, Rumi has become a twenty-first- century bestselling author. Although misquoted nearly as often as he is quoted, Rumi is universally considered a poet of love, his words giving shape to the ache of longing, the pain of separation, and the ecstasy of union with the beloved.
For Rumi, the path to the divine transcended creed and was accessible to any lover, regardless of culture or social order. Rumi, a highly educated and respected religious scholar, Islamic jurist, and Muslim preacher, was in his late thirties before he ever composed a line of poetry. It was then that he met Shams-e Tabrizi and verse began to pour from him.
The selections in this book are taken from that fount, the Divan-e Shams-e Tabrizi, where more than 44, lines of poetry, dictated or sung by Rumi, capture the love between Rumi, the student, and his teacher Shams-e Tabrizi, the anguish of estrangement, and the journey to union with the beloved. Nearly three thousand of those lines were chosen for their elegance, their imagery, and their focus on the spiritual path, as well as the inner practice of meditation, the importance of a living teacher, and the responsibilities of the disciple in a spiritual relationship.
Many of these verses have been translated into English for the first time. Some better-known verses are included because they were simply too beautiful or too profound to ignore. The brilliance of his work and the universality of its message of love explain Rumi's enduring legacy and the ubiquity of quotations from his poetry.
For ease of reading, we have organized this book into two parts. A renowned scholar of Persian literature and Iranian linguistics and an expert on Rumi, Furazanfar based his work on a comparison of nine older manuscripts and three newer, published editions of the Divan. He gathered and edited Rumis poetry into ten volumes, two of which provide an index to facilitate searches for specific lines or poems and supply meanings for obscure or unusual words found in the poetry.
This has been an invaluable resource for the translations presented here. This loss and restoration may have impacted the integrity of the original line order in some poems. Given the enthusiasm with which the publishing industry has produced books on Rumi's poetry in the last two decades, it is important to ask whether we need another.
We feel the need for the present version because much of what has already been embraced as Rumi's poetry is incomplete, uses somewhat archaic language, or lacks many of the nuances that lie at the heart of Rumi's mystical teaching.
And Rumi has enormous relevance today as a bridge between cultures. My friend Karan Singh, Chairman of the Rumi Foundation, says it well: "Rumi is the perfect antidote to our times, cutting across religious divide.
He is the soft face of Islam: about love, humanism, and compassion. The people of Afghanistan also add Balkhi before Rumi, as he hailed from Balkh. Rumi himself keeps lifting you higher and higher through his philosophy and poetry, themes and symbolism, and through his piety and poverty. He continues to position you between what the world is thirsty for and what organized religion offers. His writings can touch you and transform you at any level: cerebral, emotional, ecstatic, or spiritual.
And, if you pay attention, you will see that he is inviting us all on a journey, full of mysteries and wonders. Human lives are quite mundane and simple, filled with anguish and frustration, and a deep sense of loss as time flies. A concern for the human predicament and the human race, for aesthetics and the finer values of life, and faith in the communication arts have all been central drivers of both my personal outlook and my professional life.
I have always been passionate about sharing ideas with people. Anyone who is fortunate enough to experience the love of a spiritual Master, or even the yearning for one, will certainly understand what is being presented who are already Rumi enthusiasts.
And for those new seekers who are looking for a challenge or for a kindred soul, or seeking a path out of orthodoxy into a different Truth, Rumi can provide all that.
As he says in the Masnavi. The beloved is all that lives the lover is a dead thing. With eyes closed, you ask, "Where has the bright day gone? Subscribe for Newsletters and Discounts. Be the first to receive our thoughtfully written religious articles and product discounts.

October September RSS Feed. Children Pdf Books. It is often said that Rumi had attained the level of a 'Perfect Master' and as such, he often dwelled in the spiritual realms that were rarely visited by others of this world. He attained heights that were attained by only a few before him or since. In Divan-e Shams, he has used many images from the mundane world. Images such as the wine and the wine bearer, the pearl and the ocean, the sun and the moon, the night and day, the caravan, pilgrimage and many more.
