Overview

The poetry of the medieval Persian sage Rumi combines lyrical beauty with spiritual profundity, a sense of rapture, and acute awareness of human suffering in ways that speak directly to contemporary audiences.

Trained in Sufism—a mystic tradition within Islam—Rumi founded the Sufi order known to us as the Whirling Dervishes, who use dance and music as part of their spiritual devotion. Many of Rumi’s poems speak of a yearning for ecstatic union with the divine Beloved. But his images bring the sacred and the earthy together in startling ways, describing divine love in vividly human terms.

This volume draws on a wide variety of translations—from the early twentieth century to the present—of Rumi’s deeply moving, sensually vibrant poetry.

    Hidden Music

    The title of this book says it all. It truly is music. Music for your heart, for your soul. Everything about this little gem is captivating. Rumi is an inspiring poet. He speaks for today; even though his poetry was written in centuries past. The art is flowing and yet simple. A lovely touch to the words. I highly recommend this book.
