I hear nothing in my ear
But your voice.
Heart has plundered mind
of its eloquence

Love writes a transparent
Calligraphy, so on
The empty page my soul
Can read and recollect

The Sufi mystic and poet Jalaliddin Rumi is most beloved for his writings which
represent the ecstasies and mysteries of life in all its forms – erotic, platonic, divine – which are fresh and intense today as when they first written by this medieval, Persian-born (present-day Afghanistan) poet and spiritual genius.

In this compact volume, Reynold A. Nicholson, the renowned Islamic scholar, combines his research in Sufi doctrines and history with a rich account of the spiritual and metaphysical significance of Sufism as a living tradition. This volume reveals Rumi’s charm and depth of thought more than in any other book.
