Description


The selections in this book are sparkling drops from the ocean of Rumi's spiritual masterpiece, the Mathnawi -- six volumes of rhymed verse, drawing on favorite stories from the Qur'an, tales of Sufi saints and masters, the sayings of Muhammed, folklore, and popular humor. The excerpts presented here are rendered in free-verse style and emphasize the teaching stories and spiritual fables. Also included are seventeen personal letters, in which Rumi offers spiritual counsel to disciples and family members.
