From Madonna to Deepak Chopra, celebrities have been recording and embracing Rumi's poetry for the past two decades, creating a resurgence of interest in this 14th century Sufi mystic.
Rumi's Little Book of Life is a beautiful collection of 196 poems by Rumi, previously unavailable in English. Translated by native Persian speakers, Maryam Mafi and Azima Melita, this collection will appeal to Rumi lovers everywhere.
This collection of mystical poetry focuses on one of life's core issues: coming to grips with the inner life. During the course of life, each of us is engaged on an inner journey.
Rumi's Little Book of Life is a guidebook for that journey. The poetry is a companion for those who consciously enter the inner world to explore the gardens within - out of the everyday "world of dust"-through an ascending hierarchy that restores one's soul to the heart; the heart of the spirit; and in finding spirit, transcending all.

Rumi (Jal'l ad-D'n Muhammad Balkh') was a 13th-century Persian Sunni Muslim poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic.

Maryam Mafi, born and raised in Iran, is an experienced Persian translator who studied in the US and has translated a variety of scholarly and poetic works since 1989.

Azima Melita Kolin was born in Bulgaria and is a concert pianist and an artist. She completed her studies at the musical academies in Sofia, Rome and Geneva and has won many international competitions in Germany, Italy, and Spain. She also studied painting and has had many exhibitions in the UK and abroad.
