_____________________________
 
Those who became complete
didn't live this life in hypocrisy,
didn't learn the meaning of things
by reading commentaries.
 
Reality is an ocean; the Law is a ship.
Many have never left the ship,
never jumped into the sea.
 
They might have come to Worship
but they stopped at rituals.
They never knew or entered the Inside.
 
Those who think the Four Books
were meant to be talked about,
who have only read explanations
and never entered meaning,
are really in sin.
 
Yunus means "true friend"
for one whose journey has begun.
Until we transform our Names,
we haven't found the Way.
 
(Yunus Emre)

Description:
 
This collection of poems introduces a general readership to Yunus Emre (1240-1321), called the "greatest folk poet in Islam" An unlettered Turkish shepherd who sang mystical songs that are still popular today, he was the first in a great tradition of Turkish Sufi troubadours who celebrated the Divine Presence as the intimate Beloved and Friend. Yunus's verse conveys the spirit and philosophy of Islamic mysticism in simple, earthy language.
