Let’s speak in the language of the heart, love, the common language of humanity!
The Mathnawi is a literary masterpiece that was composed by Mawlana Jalaladdin Rumi, a great Sufi master of the thirteenth century and one of the most published poets in the West today. It is one of the cornerstones of Middle Eastern, Central and South Asian culture. The Mathnawi was a call for unity and virtue in a world full of conflict, wars and migrations. It emphasizes human virtue and the development of the spiritual insight of the heart.
We are going to read stories from the book Tales from Rumi, a selected and abridged collection from the Mathnawi, and share our feelings with each other.
The souls that have clung to water and clay, Are pleased on being freed from them, And begin to dance in the air and breezes of love, Becoming perfected like the full moon.
