About Rumi and Divine Love

I have yet to find a better short description about the essence of Rumi Poetry than by the words of Hazrat Inayat Khan :

The original words of Rumi are so deep, so perfect, so touching, that when one man repeats them hundreds and thousands of people are moved to tears.

They cannot help penetrating the heart. This shows how much Rumi himself was moved to have been able to pour out such living words.

Please look around and be moved by this wonderful Rumi poetry. If you'd like to see something added to the site or have any other comments, please contact us and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
