A Stone I Died Poem by Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi

A Stone I Died

Rating: 2.9


A stone I died and rose again a plant;
A plant I died and rose an animal;
I died an animal and was born a man.
Why should I fear? What have I lost by death?

The most respected and revered poet in his poem narrates the beauty of life in different varieties of creation which is ultimately the the death that wins and also no loss to the life in its essence. From the beginnning the life from a stone to the human being it is very ideal example of the finality into a human beings's life that the poet says.

Look the death embraces me- to live longest than universe, to live longest than times, to love longest and to acquire whole universe.......... not to lose anything

I think many of you are missing out on the fact that it seems to be rising death by death and i think that's the point of it that what will be after man dies some kind of higher form

Amazing philosophy and reasoning for waving aside the fear of death existing in mind of almost all people.
