Praise for Daniel Ladinsky’s translation
“There are universes inside Hafiz, a lineage of masters. Daniel Ladinsky follows the playfulness; the rascal moves well.” —Coleman Barks
About the Author
Daniel Ladinsky has published three previous translations of Hafiz's poems, The Gift, The Subject Tonight Is Love, and I Heard God Laughing, as well as a collection of translations of poems by twelve mystics and saints, Love Poems From God. His most recent collection is The Purity of Desire: 100 Poems of Rumi. For six years, he made his home in a spiritual community in western India, where he worked and lived with the intimate disciples and family of Avatar Meher Baba. He lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

I refer to this book often for inspiration, for meditation, and just for fun, and have now purchased another copy after giving the first to a friend. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in word-art inspired by the love of the sacred.
Did God really call that famous leader a goofball?
If he did, no need to worry about God anymore -
He is doing just fine,
And we are all a lot better off than I earlier suspected.
Or this one from Mira, renowned Indian poet of the 16th century:
The earth looked at Him and began to dance.
Mira knows why, for her soul too is in love.
If you cannot picture God in a way that always strengthens you,
You need to read more of my poems.
This is a very readable and uplifting collection, one to be savored and read again and again. I like this collection so well, I bought another one for a friend for Christmas
I learned about many religious or spiritual thinkers from this book. I was already a fan of Rumi, but had never read St. Catherine of Siena for example, or Hafiz, or most of the others whose writings fill this book. It was a learning experience, and the writings are beautiful and thought-provoking.
I also think the book is bound beautifully. So, beautiful thoughts contained in a lovely book. I'm so glad I bought it.
If you want literal, this is not your book.
If you're after the Spirit, get a copy now.
