There are many sides to Jalal al-Din Rumi - scholar, preacher, saint, mystic, love poet, didactic poet, and spiritual master - but the version of him that became 'the best-selling poet in North America' lacks authenticity.This new anthology of Rumi's teachings is freshly translated and supplemented with commentaries, and also includes selected texts in Persian. The aim is to bring readers closer to his work's true, traditional meaning - and to the man himself as a great Muslim teacher and spiritual guide. Besides illustrating the traditional basis of Rumi's teachings, this Treasury displays his unique genius as one of the world's greatest religious writers, whose voice speaks as clearly and compellingly today as in the 7th/13th century.'Everyone has, in their view, become my close friendbut they have not sought out the secrets within me.' -- RumiAbout the AuthorDr. Muhammad Isa Waley is an editor, researcher, and translator.
