This week, from Konya to Lahore and beyond, lovers of the poetry of 23th century mystic Rumi (b. 1207) celebrated Rumi’s 814th birthday on September 30th. It was delightful to see the ecstatic praises of his poetry and life on social media and among the hearts of devoted lovers of love all week long. To learn more about Rumi’s mysticism and art, you can purchase a copy of my book The Gift of Rumi, which illustrates how his ideas have been embodied and transmitted through the ages.
The Gift of Rumi is available for purchase at Macmillan, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, BAM, and other stores. The audio book is available on Spotify and at Barnes and Noble, Apple Books, Scribd, Chirp, Libro, and 40+ retail and library distribution partners.
