150 New Translations.
More inspiring poems by one of the greatest Persian mystics and poets, here translated for the first time into English. Devoted to the gardens of the soul, the spirit and the heart, this new collection captures the spirit and essence of Rumi's timeless message.
Jelaluddin Rumi was born in what is now Afghanistan in 1207. His poetry has inspired generations of spiritual seekers, both from his own Sufi school and well beyond. His message of love speaks directly to the heart and transcends the limitations of language and the boundaries of time. Rumi is one of the world's most revered poets and spiritual teachers, and is currently the bestselling poet in America.
The poems in this book are divided into 3 sections, with 50 poems devoted to each of the gardens of the soul, the spirit and the heart. All are stages of the Sufi development. There are poems from the Divan, Rubaiyat and the Masnavi, with many presented in beautiful Persian calligraphy to enchant and inspire.
Beautifully illustrated throughout with calligraphy, this will make an ideal gift book.
