Rumi Magic

Rumi Quiote 8

Although Rumi lived way back in the 13th century, his teachings have had a universal appeal, spreading across national borders and ethnic discords. Muslim communities across Central and South Asia have embraced his spiritual legacy for over seven centuries.

Today his inspirational poems can be appreciated in many languages. And thanks to American scholar and Rumi whiz Coleman Barks, this 13th century Persian mystic has risen to become the most popular and best selling poet in the United States. Since 1976, when Barks began publishing his interpretations of Rumi’s work, The Hand of Poetry, Five Mystic Poets of Persia in 1993, The Essential Rumi in 1995 and The Book of Love in 2003 have hit the bookshelves, delighting the young and old alike.
