Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Madonna to Deepak Chopra, celebrities have been recording and embracing Rumi's poetry for the past two decades, creating a resurgence of interest in this 14th century Sufi mystic.

Rumi's Little Book of Life is a beautiful collection of 196 poems by Rumi, previously unavailable in English. Translated by native Persian speakers, Maryam Mafi and Azima Melita Kolin, this collection will appeal to Rumi lovers everywhere.

This collection of mystical poetry focuses on one of life's core issues: coming to grips with the inner life. During the course of life, each of us is engaged on an inner journey. Rumi's Little Book of Life is a guidebook for that journey. The poetry is a companion for those who consciously enter the inner world to explore the gardens within--out of the everyday "world of dust"--through an ascending hierarchy that restores one's soul to the heart; the heart of the spirit; and in finding spirit, transcending all.

About the Author

Rumi was a 13th-century Persian Muslim poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic. Maryam Mafi, born and raised in Iran, is an experienced Persian translator who studied in the U.S. and has translated a variety of scholarly and poetic works since 1989. Azima Melita Kolin is a poet, concert pianist and artist, who studied in Rome and Geneva. Coming from different backgrounds of language, music and art, they have stretched the boundaries of their collaboration from Iran to Bulgaria, from America to eastern and western Europe. Their meeting place os the love they both share for Rumi.
