Excellent!

Jalal al-Din Mohammad Balkhi (more popularly known as `Rumi') is a well known 13th century Sufi poet and theologian. I have come across his work several times in that past, but I never read more than a few passages. This is the first time I have sat down and read a collection of his work `cover to cover,' and I deeply enjoyed it. Rumi's poems are deeply spiritual and penetrate perfectly into the human condition of love and the tides of overwhelming emotions that run with it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone and I would especially recommended it to men. There are some really romantic and spiritual poems in here that I think would make a nice impression on a `special' woman in your life.

Elegant, Sacredly Sensual - This one is a Keeper Squared

Wow. I sat reading this elegantly slim volume in my local Barnes and Noble and I am surprised I didn't float away in ecstacy. I felt completely engulfed in spiritual inspiration, I felt transfixed by a sacred sensuality - and all this while sitting in the children's section no less. Rumi, as those of us who adore his work know, is a one-of-a-kind. Deepak Chopra is another one-of-a-kind. Bring the energy of these two beings, separated by centuries, and you have a winner on so many planes. I plan on giving many copies of this book as gifts - possibly to introduce people to Rumi... or perhaps, to woo a certain someone. Ahhhh, yes. This is GOOD stuff...........

Beautiul, Moving and Absorbing!

Chopra's selections, of some of Rumi's most passionate poems, are a delight for the heart and soul! The new translations by Farsi scholar Fereydoun Kia are very deep and moving. There is NO OTHER poet with as much passion for the heart, mind and soul as Rumi. His longings for love are our longings and desires yet his expressions will carry you away and fill you up. These favorite selections of Chopra's will seep into your heart and soul.Share these poems with your lover, by the fire, in each other's arms, and feel the magic of Rumi weaving his spell!

Rumi brings love to the point yet full of passion and truths

Rumi can not be described as "touchy feeley love poetry", that would be offensive! Rumi speaks truths through his mind and soul in the simplest terms, uncomplicated, tangible and, above all, humanly attainable. This can not be read quickly, it must be digested slowly, carefully, gracefully and with an open soul. Anything else and the reader would be cheating themselves out of something beautiful.

A universal sense of divine Love as the only real being.

Rumi's sense of divine Love as the essence of one's own being, shines resplendently through almost every poem in this collection. He seems to say that looking for life outside this sense is somewhat like to trying follow footsteps through the sand as they dissolve in the waves in front of you. This "lover" must be seen within spiritual consciousness; must be felt in the warmth and security of the perfection of the Divine. Rumi must be interpreted metaphysically, yet speaks to the everyday experience. Drink in the spiritual wine!
