It is an astonishing fact that, 800 years after he was born,
Mevlana Rumi is the most popular poet in the United States of
America. The name Mevlana Celâleddin Rumi stands for an
ecstatic flight into infinite love.
The story of love must be heard
from love itself
For like a mirror it is
both voiceless and expressive.
Mevlana Rumi (1207-1273).
This philosopher and mystic of Islam addressed all people, regardless
of their faith or ethnic origin.
Mevlana's original Sufi philosophy and importance surpass national
and ethnic borders.
He advocated unlimited tolerance, positive reasoning, goodness,
charity and awareness through love.
When Mevlana Rumi died, for the first and only time known in
world history, Moslems, Jews and Christians quarreled about the
honour to carry him to his grave.
