About Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi

Sufism is the mystical school of the Islam. A school of self-knowledge,  a way, hat teaches each person the science of exploring his or her being, Sufism considers the  human being is as the perfect image of existence—the macrocosm and the microcosm—from the physical and magnetic, to the metaphysical and spiritual, his or her Inner being manifests the absolute knowledge of existence.

 Inayat Khan an Indian Sufi master says “ The original words (in Persian) of Rumi are so deep, so perfect, so touching, that when one man repeats them hundreds and thousands of people are moved to tears. They cannot help penetrating the heart. This shows how much Rumi himself was moved to have been able to pour out such living words”.

Mevlana Rumi’s work called Mathnavi  is a collection of   teaching stories about tolerance, love of the Divine and the remembrance of the Divine. The Mathnavi is about such  personalities such as Moses, Jesus and Muhammad, and Sufis and consists of 26.000 verses. Mevlana Rumi also wrote 36.000 verses in poetry.. Besides poetry he was very fond of music and dance.. The orthodox school of Islam did not like this in his time and he had to discuss in length and writing why music and the whirling dance of the dervishes, meaning ecstasy was a way to connect with the One.
