Synopsis: Rumi’s Sun collects many lessons and discourses from Shams of Tabriz, the Sufi mystic and spiritual master who was the catalyst for Rumi’s awakening. His teachings and insights inspired much of Rumi’s poetry and are still celebrated today by all Sufi. Translated by two noted students of Sufi, Shams’ timeless teachings are presented here in their traditional order. Through the book, readers discover the teachings that made Rumi dance and gain access into Sufi traditions and the power of mystical love.

Review: Rumi is the most popular poetic voice in America today. But if he is the king of poetry, Shams of Tabriz is the power behind the throne. What Rumi points us to, indicates, refers to, is here in the words of his intimate friend and ruthless, infinitely mysterious master. Shams' words shock and stun, amaze with their inspiration, tear apart the veils of our expectations about what spiritual life should be, bring us to the dazzling stillness that Rumi span around and around in his longing. When you have found Shams of Tabriz, you know there is nowhere else you need to go. --Peter Kingsley, author of Reality and In the Dark Places of Wisdom

According to a prophetic tradition, "Love is a fire that, when it befalls the heart, burns away all but the Beloved." Look into the burning breast of Shams of Tabriz and you will see the Beloved looking back at you. --Pir Zia Inayat-Khan, Spiritual Leader of the Sufi Order International

Rumi's Sun offers something unique in classical Sufi literature: an eyewitness record, by Rumi's own disciples, of the actual personal teachings and conversations of Shams-i Tabriz. In this beautifully readable version, we are given a fascinating insight into a unique and unforgettable personality: a boldly iconoclastic figure whose teachings are marked by an intensity of purpose, and whose own spiritual experience is expressed in an unusually open way. The translators have also done a useful service highlighting the many places where Shams' teachings were subsequently adapted and creatively transmuted throughout Rumi's epic Masnavi and other poems. --James Winston Morris, internationally respected scholar of Sufism, Professor, Boston College
