9780007120321: Rumi: Hidden Music

A breathtaking new collection of translations of poems by Rumi, one of the world’s most loved mystical teachers and bestselling poets. Beautifully packaged and illustrated with paintings and Persian calligraphy, this is an ideal gift.

Jalal-uddin Rumi was born in what is now Afghanistan in 1207. His poetry has inspired generations of spiritual seekers, both from his own Sufi school and well beyond. His poems speak to the seeker and the lover in all of us. He is one of the world’s most revered poets and spiritual teachers, and is currently the bestselling poet in America.

Rumi is one of the greatest mystic poets of all time. His unique message of love speaks directly to the heart and transcends the boundaries of language and time. These poems, carefully selected from the Divan of Shams (Rumi's collection of 3,000 poems), speak powerfully to the seeker and lover in all of us.

These beautiful, new translations from the original Persian, by the authors of Rumi: Whispers of the Beloved, are arranged thematically and lead us through the intricacies of love, longing and the quest for truth. Each section is accompanied by Persian calligraphy of several of the poems, as well as stunning, evocative paintings by Azima Melita Kolin, reproduced in full colour, which are inspired by the poems and have been specially commissioned for the book.

Review:

From Hidden Music:
My love, you are closer to me than myself,
You shine through my eyes.
Your light is brighter than the moon.
Step into the garden
So all the flowers, even the tall poplar
Can kneel before your beauty.
Let your voice silence the lily
Famous for its hundred tongues.
