Feeling the Shoulder of the Lion: Selected Poetry and Teaching Stories of Rumi

Feeling the Shoulder of the Lion: Selected Poetry and Teaching Stories of Rumi Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

     These selections from Rumi's Mathnawi – a classic of Sufi spiritual literature – express the "lion's roar" of courage, discipline, clarity, and integrity. The lion represents the fierce intensity that recognizes no authority except the highest truth. At the same time, Rumi's lion is full of heart and devotion. Through these poems the reader will explore the qualities that are vital to the spiritual aspirant who seeks to overcome the imprisonment of ego.
