This pocket selection is the perfect format for carrying around some of the wisest and most inspiring of Rumi’s teachings, most of them from his spiritual classic the Mathnawi. He is an almost unique combination of a mystic who founded one of the largest Sufi orders, and a poet who has recently topped the bestseller lists in the United States. He is renowned for his compassion and deep, and often humorous, insights into human nature, and his soaring accounts of ecstatic union with God. Most of the translations are by the book’s editor Kabir Helminski, who’s likewise an influential Sufi teacher.
