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.

Mevlana Rumi... the mirror of life
Rumi's works are beyond time.
His books are lifetime companion.
the story of "the lion, the hare and the hunted animals"
Anton Lesser is the best narrator I've listened to so far!
He reads Rumi's works by feeling every verse deeply, and speaks with the spirit of Rumi!
Silent, pure, and peaceful.
"Accept this reading, make no argument,
Such milk and honey you too might be sent;
Interpreting throws back what you’ve received,
Due to a fault in it that you’ve perceived."
