Love's Ripening: Rumi on the Heart's Journey

Love's Ripening: Rumi on the Heart's Journey Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although alone, the lover is never lonely,

Forever hidden with the Beloved.

Love is the meaning of our existence, the raw material of transformation, the glorious way of access to Divine intimacy. This teaching infuses the lyric verse of Rumi (1207-1273), the greatest of the Sufi poets. The poems in this collection, taken from among the master's many volumes of work, focus on one of his greatest themes: how love grows and matures for those on the spiritual path. Kabir Helminski and Ahmad Rezwani have crafted a translation that remains faithful to the original Persian while giving eloquent expression to the joy of Rumi's astonishing encounter with the Divine. As our love moves on to ever more refined and exalted objects, Rumi declares, the distinction between lover and Beloved becomes irrelevant—and wonderfully so:

There is no Love greater than Love with no object,

For then you, yourself, have become Love itself.

Synopsis:

Here are more of the thrilling verses of the 13th-century Sufi saint, in translations that combine unsurpassed beauty and accuracy--presented in an heirloom-worthy gift edition, with full-cloth cover, sewn binding, and ribbon marker.

About the Author

Jalaluddin Rumi (1207-1273) was not only a poet, mystic, and the founder of a Sufi order, he was a man of profound insight into the nature of human existence and possibly the greatest mystical poet of any age.
