Get drunk on Love, for Love is all that exists. Unless you make Love your business, you will not be admitted to the Beloved.' (Divan-i Shams-i Tabriz 455:A1:54)

The thirteenth-century saint Jalaluddin Rumi has been called the greatest mystical poet of any age, and his work compared to that of Dante and Shakespeare. Over a period of 25 years he composed over 70,000 verses of poetry on the subjects of divine love, mystic passion and ecstatic illumination.

Rumi was also a master story-teller, as this comprehensive exploration of his work so rewardingly reveals. Primarily an introduction to Rumi and the path of self-surrender, it is arranged in such a way that it guides the reader from the poet's outer, historical world to the inner, spiritual essence of his teaching.

The Essence of Rumi offers us the opportunity to overcome the limitations of our human view of the world and transform our sensory eye into the poet's all-seeing Ocean of Reality.

An eye-opening and heart blooming introduction to Rumi. A must read in my opinion.

The theme of form and essence is also reflected in Rumi’s writings in another way, since his inspiration progresses from the inner to the outer, from spiritual impulse to verbal expression. Thus, the more we are able to penetrate the outer form of his words, the closer we may come to catching a glimpse of the Source from which they came. This requires a considerable mental leap. Rumi is aware of this, for in the collection of his poetry known as the Divan-i Shams-i Tabrizi he advises:

Study me as much as you like, you will not know me,

for I differ in a hundred ways from what you see me to be.

Put yourself behind my eyes and see me as I see myself,

for I have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see.

(Divan-i Shams-i Tabrizi 1372: A1:168)
When a man becomes a vehicle for Spirit,
his human attributes disappear.
Whatever he says,
pure Spirit is speaking,
for the one who belongs in this world
speaks from one who belongs in the other.
If Spirit can have this much effect,
how much greater must be the power
of the One whose Spirit it is!
(Mathnawi IV: 2112–14)
A pure heart is without doubt like a polished mirror, open to receive an infinite number of images . . .
