"Rumi has, to the recent amazement of many people in the Western culture as well as the Islamic culture, been able to speak directly to contemporary readers. One of the greatest pieces of good luck that has happened recently in American poetry is Coleman Barks's agreement to translate poem after poem of Rumi. Rumi, like Kabir, is able to contain and continue intricate theological arguments and at the same time speak directly from the heart or to the heart. Coleman's exquisite sensitivity to the flavor and turns of ordinary American speech has produced marvelous lines, full of flavor and Sufi humor, as well as the intimacy that is carried inside American speech at its best."

This book somehow illustrated spiritually cryptic things for me: What does it mean to have compassion for The Other? What does Sacred Interconnection mean? How do we love our selves or others in that secret place where there is no ego, no fear, no illusion?
Take your time with this book. Don't expect results right away. I found that I got some things from it almost immediately... And other things I had to come back to a few times in contemplation, or many times, to really appreciate.
I found it amazing how Michael Green's collages of modern (colliding atomic particle paths), ancient, religious and astronomy photography, brought about inner movement and emotion within me.
A great gift for yourself if you are a Seeker...and also to those of your friends who are, too, whether they know it or are about to find out.
This book has led me to explore other translations of Rumi. Above all, it has helped get me to a greater appreciation of the universality of the Love of God, sans the human limitations that religion, culture, gender or language restrict the word "God" to.
The poems are inspiring. The illustrations are most creative, and perhaps distracting from the poetry. They attract more attention than the poems. Still, however, the poems are the core of the book, and once you see an image, you'll want to read the poem that inspired it.
Most of the experts on Rumi agree that there are better books, but this is a great introduction and it will inspire the curious to read more. This is a worthy hard cover, table top introduction. Buy it! The price is right. The poems are beautifully laid out. The illustrations are very captivating. When I first opened the package and took a glance at it, the only thing that I could say was "Oh my!" I think you'll be delighted with it too.
