There are certain servants of God who proceed from the Koran to God. Others more elect come from God, find the Koran here, and know that God has sent it down: 'It is We who have seen the Remembrance, and We will watch over it.' The commentators say that this quote refers to the Koran. This too is good; but it can also mean, 'We have placed in you a substance, a seeking, a yearning. We will watch over that, not letting it go to waste, but will bring it to its rightful place.'

(Rumi)

Description: 


Available for the first time in paperback, this work translates a selection of discourses by Persia's great mystic and poet, Jalal-al-Din Rumi. Rumi was the principal inspiration behind the Sufi order, the Mawlawiyya, which many claim he founded. Born in Balkh, Jalal-al-Din later came to Konya, where he formed his famous relationship with the itinerant Sufi Shams al-Din Muhammad Tabrizi.
