9780060620189: The Illustrated Rumi: A Treasury of Wisdom from the Poet of the Soul

The bestselling poet in America today, thirteenth-century Sufi mystic Jalalu'ddin Rumi has inspired and enlightened thousands with his playful, passionate work celebrating the sacred in everyday life. Now the spiritual wealth of Rumi's stories and poetry in translation are accompanied by rare and wonderful art in the Sufi tradition. This fresh rendering brings new life to these incomparable parables, which have transcended time, place, culture, and religion to speak directly to the hearts and souls of contemporary readers. With a foreword by Huston Smith, these selections of the inimitable mystic's prose and poetry have been taken from all of the master's works.

Each parable, such as The King and the Handmaiden, The Grocer and the Parrot, The Ugly Old Woman, and The Man Who Was Always Being Swindled, is related as Rumi might have presented it to his fascinated audiences, as he whirled in meditation and trance. But each story also has a spiritual message, a holy essence that applies across all faiths, uttered from the heart of Islam. Each of these messages is provided here in a modern rendering that keeps the flavor of this unique period of history, of culture, and of inspired, passionate beauty.

About the Author:

Philip Dunn and Manuela Dunn Mascetti, the translators, have created many bestselling volumes, including Huston Smith's The Illustrated World's Religions, Stephen Hawking's The Illustrated Brief History of Time, and Thomas Moore's The Illustrated Care of the Soul, plus their own works, which include The Buddha in a Box, Kama Sutra: The Rules of Love and Erotic Practice, Ganesha: Remover of Obstacles, and many more.

Review:

“This treasury of wisdom will bring you ecstatic spiritual insights and a profound understanding of yourself and theworld. Keep it by your bedside and read a little bit every day. Enjoy each parable and each verse as you would a gourmet menu.” (Dr. Deepak Chopra)

“...exquisitely designed volume... Perhaps the most commendable aspect of The Illustrated Rumi is the Islamic art that provides a luxuriant context for the parables and poems. These designs and plates reveal the truth of the statement from Muslim tradition: ‘God is beautiful and He loves beauty.’” (Spirituality&Practice)
