The Architect of Love: Sufi Poems by Niyazi Misri: Sufi Poems by Niyazi Misri

by Niyasi Misri, Ersin Balci




True spiritual Masters are like rivers, each with their own uniquely pure, sweet water, nourished by the highest peaks. Although one may see them flowing on the surface, mostly, they are underground rivers, making it hard to access them. But, if one finds a way to access a true spiritual Master, you will very soon realize that he is, amazingly, a door, a passageway to the deepest realities of existence, a healing for wounded hearts, and a secure harbor within the unending turmoil of life. With that encounter a vibrant, marvelous, and intoxicating dance of the heart begins which will take you to the unexpected beauties of your inner existence. The Architect of Love will open a way for readers to experience such an encounter with the mighty spiritual presence of Niyazi Misri, the great Turkish sufi Master, lived in the 17th century Ottoman period, who is well known for his beautiful, spiritually energizing sufi poems which have been widely read in Turkish sufi circles for centuries.
