About this title

Synopsis:

Meter 22 of the 22 meters of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi's masterpiece, the Divan-i Kebir, translated into English in its entirety for the first time.

The Divan-i Kebir, or Divan-i Shams is the anthology of Rumi's poems from the time he met Shams (1244) until the day he died (1273). Although Shams disappeared from Rumi's life after only three years, the impact of this Saint and Master transformed Rumi's life into one of self-annihilation, spiritual longing and ecstasy, all clearly reflected in his poetry.

Rumi's poetry is recorded in 13th century Farsi, the language of the times in Anatolia (some Arabic, Turkish and Greek also appears). Rumi did not write down his poetry. Rather, he spontaneously recited poems day and night, and assigned people, called katib-i esrar [secret secretary], surrounded and followed him, recording what he said.

These more than 44,000 verses are beautiful explanations of the secret of life, Love, humanity, God, and more. They also serve as historical sketches of 13th Century life in Konya, Anatolia. And, they take the reader into the spiritual journey Rumi took 800 years ago toward the enlightenment of Love. For more information, visit ReadingRumi.com.

From the Publisher:

Echo Publications is the publishing arm of the Society for Understanding Mevlana. The purpose of our existence is to bring the beauty and wisdom of Rumi to the public through different media.

We accepted this challenge many years ago. It has been a difficult, but beautiful journey. The language the Divan was written in is 13th Century Farsi, spoken in Anatolia. There is a small number of gazelles written in Arabic, Turkish and even Greek. The CD of this original Divan will be given free of charge to scholar s and persons interested when purchasing the whole set of the Divan.
