Rumi is Everywhere Rumi is Light
In December 1273, when Rumi fell ill, he predicted his own death and composed a ghazal which begins with the verse: '' How doest thou know what sort of king I have within me as companion? Do not cast thy glance upon my golden face, for I have iron legs. ''
i was introduced to sufism through rumi. i got turned on to him by my brother who passed on the poem given the title the many wines in coleman barks' the essential rumi. then i was introduced to hafiz... rumi is among my three current favorite poets. there would be too much to say in praise of his poetry, and it's better, of course, to actually read it. one may need, however, to have some taste of the mystical experience to appreciate it. as paul says in 1 corinthians, only the spirit (of God) searches and understands the spirit. -glen kappy
t doesn't matter where from Rumi was..what matteres is he has given us the largest of the treasures of Sufi Poetry ever produced. His poetry classified as Sufi Poetry is in fact the basic truth of this Universe.
He is a Tatar (essential Turk) but his work was all done in Persian (Farsi) !
He is a Tatar (essential Turk) great Poet in sufi poems!
Why is his poem Sneezing out animals not included in this listing...?
Rumi is one of the greatest sufi poets
A great poet stood for human kind and mysticism was his way of writing.
His poems are not only beautiful but inspirational. He makes me proud to be an Afghan. [3
