An exploration of the Persian poet's spiritual philosophy, with original translations of his poetry.
· The perfect introduction to the man known as the philosopher of love
· Speaks directly to the cutting edges of philosophy, psychology, social theory, and education, from the wisdom of a mystic and heartfelt poet
For six hundred years the Persian poet Hafez has been read, recited, quoted, and loved by millions of people in his homeland and throughout the world. Like his predecessor Rumi, he is a spiritual guide in our search for life's essence. Hafez is both a mystic philosopher and a heartfelt poet of desires and fears. Haleh Pourafzal and Roger Montgomery invite you to savor the wit and passion of his words.
The Spiritual Wisdom of Hafez is the perfect introduction to the man known as the philosopher of love, whose message of spiritual transcendence through rapture and service to others is especially important as our troubled world enters the twenty-first century. His wisdom speaks directly to the cutting edges of philosophy, psychology, social theory, and education, and can serve as a bridge of understanding between the West and the Middle East, two cultures in desperate need of mutual empathy.
