"In this fine volume all of the arts come together in a splendid unfolding of all that is Rumi Sufism. The photographs and paintings play against vibrant prose, open all the locked doors leading to the university of Rumi and his teachings. The great care taken in the translation is a marvel unto itself. For a clear understanding of mysticism and Islam this work will always prove itself an excellent sourcebook." -- The New England Review of Books
"This book is an excellent introduction to one of the greatest spiritual masters of all time...Containing as it does extracts which are not yet available in English, this book will interest even those who already know something about Rumi." -- Beshara Magazine, England

Sad that I lost this book during on of my trips. Gonna have to reorder it again.
I believe that the "whirling dervishes dances" was more of a side effect of the state of ecstasy of Rumi, than a mean of getting close to God...
