Publisher's Summary

Rumi's Spiritual Verses is the greatest mystical poem in Islamic culture - and of all time. Rumi examines our human separation from reality, love, and truth. He shows how love - neither erotic nor sentimental but divine, by which the universe is held together - enlightens ignorance and dissolves suffering. The first book of the Masnavi is the key to the whole work: It takes off from simple, amusing tales into realms unimaginable, but wholly familiar to the human heart.

Should be listened to by all spiritual seekers

Amazing. The raw cannot understand the ripe. Where is part 2? Jalaloddin comes to life with Anton Lesser's performance. This is more than a book, it IS living Word. Thank you!

Beautiful Poetry

Sadly I found Anton Lessor's reading detracted from the words. Not the expression but the sound of voice detracted from my enjoyment . I read so many others enjoyed the reading, so read my comments in that light. It is a personal opinion.

The poetry, the verses are beautiful.
