Know, the true nature of your Beloved.
In His loving eyes, your every thought,
Word and movement is always –
Translated by Coleman Barks in his book, ‘The Illuminated Prayer’.
Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi was a Sufi Shaykh who lived in Turkey 800 years ago, being one of the greatest Saints that the world has ever seen. He has been the most popular poet in the USA for the last ten years, with people still finding inspiration in his wisdom and beautiful language. He was the founder of the Mevlevi Sufi Order, who are famous for their Sufi Whirling Ceremony.
