    As I sit down to a book of Rumi's poetry, I am reading in two different worlds at once. To follow where Rumi's thoughts go, I have to stretch myself. I can see old desires fall behind like stepping stones as love's new face beckons me. I see a giant sun cloaked in darkness, underlying every phase of phenomenal existence. Around the corolla of that sun, every loving impulse ever conceived still radiates in an eternal now.

    In 2015 I traveled to Turkey to attend a conference in Istanbul. I made a side trip on my own to Konya, to visit the Mevlani Memorial Shrine. The shrine was built by the Sultan of Konya; it was completed twenty years after Rumi's death. For me, going there was a poetic pilgrimage. I stood for a long time looking at the intricate patterns in the silk carpet draped over Rumi's tomb. The patterns are good for inducing reverie- they appear and disappear against the dark green background.

    Rumi is Everywhere
    Rumi is Light

    In December 1273, when Rumi fell ill, he predicted his own death and composed a ghazal which begins with the verse:

    '' How doest thou know what sort of king I have within me as companion?
    Do not cast thy glance upon my golden face, for I have iron legs. ''

    i was introduced to sufism through rumi. i got turned on to him by my brother who passed on the poem given the title the many wines in coleman barks' the essential rumi.

    then i was introduced to hafiz...

    rumi is among my three current favorite poets. there would be too much to say in praise of his poetry, and it's better, of course, to actually read it. one may need, however, to have some taste of the mystical experience to appreciate it. as paul says in 1 corinthians, only the spirit (of God) searches and understands the spirit.

    t doesn't matter where from Rumi was..what matteres is he has given us the largest of the treasures of Sufi Poetry ever produced.
    His poetry classified as Sufi Poetry is in fact the basic truth of this Universe.

  • Shahriar Moghaddam (11/19/2015 11:00:00 PM)

    He is a Tatar (essential Turk) but his work was all done in Persian (Farsi) !

  • Arif Erhun (8/16/2015 7:34:00 PM)

    He is a Tatar (essential Turk) great Poet in sufi poems!

  • Larry Conners Larry Conners (6/23/2015 9:23:00 PM)

    Why is his poem Sneezing out animals not included in this listing...?

  • Abd_arrazak Abbakar (4/24/2015 4:47:00 PM)

    Rumi is one of the greatest sufi poets

Best Poem of Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

A Moment Of Happiness

A moment of happiness,
you and I sitting on the verandah,
apparently two, but one in soul, you and I.
We feel the flowing water of life here,
you and I, with the garden's beauty
and the birds singing.
The stars will be watching us,
and we will show them
what it is to be a thin crescent moon.
You and I unselfed, will be together,
indifferent to idle speculation, you and I.
The parrots of heaven will be cracking sugar
as we laugh together, you and I.
In one form upon this earth,
and in another form in a timeless sweet land.

In the prologue to the Masnavi Rumi hailed Love and its sweet madness that heals all infirmities, and he exhorted the reader to burst the bonds to silver and gold to be free. The Beloved is all in all and is only veiled by the lover. Rumi identified the first cause of all things as God and considered all second causes subordinate to that. Human min
