What can you tell me about The Society for Understanding Mevlana and Dr. Ergin`s work in translating the Divan? I read a review that said it is the first translation of that work into English by a Sufi. Have you heard of this? j.

this is quite a nicely done site. the colors and fonts you have chosen are soothing and work well with the subject matter. i have recently come upon a group of folks who do "dances of universal peace" with the sufi tradition at the heart. they have often mentioned rumi as another resource. your site gave me insight. thanks much. barbara

I returned from Turkey in May. While I was at a whirling dervish ceremony in Konya last December I read a poem of Mevlana Rumi's that I would like to find. It went something like "if you fill your life with thorns you will live in a garden of thorns, if you fill you life with flowers you will live in a garden of love." If you can help me track down the complete poem, I would appreciate it.

To my knowledge Rumi had a younger son named Alaadin who was suspected of joining the band of Rumi's followers who murdered Shams of Tabriz.

Dear Editor,

I am wondering why you are mentioning the city of Malatia as being in Armenia??? I think, it would be more accurate to refer to as Anatolia.

Regards,

Picture #9, "Enlightenment is quite well. I can identify that mans triumph as the triumph or Sufism. The masses shall have fleeting interest only when a enlihghtening thought is found by them. But what they have found is only the crumb that fell from the table! for behind everything they can comprehend there are men like Rumi studying and adding to the great knowledge and teaching only those who seek his knowledge out for themselves!

Also, perhaps we should add the work of Omar Khayyam to this page. I believe his mind and Rumi's are two sides of the same coin.
