Teachings of Rumi by Jalāl al-Dīn Rūmī( Book )

6 editions published between 1975 and 1994 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jelalludin Rumi (1207-1273) led the quiet life of an Islamic teacher in the central Anatolia (modern Turkey) until the age of thirty-seven, when he met a wandering dervish named Shams Tabriz-through whom he encountered the Divine Presence in a way that utterly transformed him. The result of this epiphany was the greatest body of mystical poetry the world has ever seen, and the establishment of a spiritual movement that would eventually stretch from Africa to China, enduring to our own day. This collection of versions of Rumi by Andrew Harvey contains some of the master's most luminous verse, along with selections from his lesser-read prose works, with the aim of presenting a balanced view of his teaching that includes both the high-flying love of God and the rigorous path of discipline essential for those who seek it
The secret garden by Maḥmūd ibn ʻAbd al-Karīm Shabistarī( Book )

22 editions published between 1876 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shabistari's Secret Rose Garden (1317 A.D.) must be reckoned among the greatest mystical poetry of any time or land. Treating such themes as the self and the One, the spiritual journey, time and this dream-world and the ecstasy of divine inebriation, Shabistari's work is a perennial witness to the capabilities and destiny of humanity. Stressing the One Light that exists at the heart of all religious traditions, Shabistari's work is one of the clearest and most concise guides to the inner meaning of Sufism, and offers a stunningly direct exposition of Sufi mystical thought in poetic form: "I" and "you" are but the lattices, in the niches of a lamp, through which the One Light shines. "I" and "you" are the veil between heaven and earth. Lift this veil and you will see no longer the bonds of sects and creeds. When "I" and "you" do not exist, what is mosque, what is synagogue? What is the Temple of Fire? An introduction by editor David Fideler discusses Shabistari's work in terms of its historical setting and the traditions of Persian Sufism, Shabistari's relationship with the thought of Ibn 'Arabi and the significance of Sufism in the contemporary world

Lawā'ih, a treatise on Ṣūfism by Jāmī( Book )

21 editions published between 1906 and 2010 in English and Persian and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work by Nūr-ud-Dīn Abd-ur-Rahmān Jāmī is a reproduction of the 1928 edition published by the Royal Asiatic Society. It contains the full text and English translation as well as a new preface by Seyyed Hossein Nasr. Jāmī needs little introduction. He is acknowledged to be one of the greatest poets of the Persian language... In this work he brilliantly describes the doctrines of Ibn 'Arabī and his school which had such a profound influence on all aspects of Persian life. It is by no means simply a commentary on Ibn 'Arabī, but as Hossein Nasr points out in his preface, 'it is the fruit of vision made possible by spiritual discipline and the attainment of sanctity.'" --Back cover

"The Persian poet Rumi, who wrote in the 13th century, has become increasingly popular today. This selection comes from his monumental work, The Mathnawi—perhaps the longest mystical poem ever written, containing 24,000 verses in rhyming couplets. Thanks to E.H.

Ces poèmes célèbrant les femmes, la beauté, l'ivresse et le néant lèvent le voile sur la figure de ce savant et astronome perse né en 1048 dans une société dominée par le dogmatisme musulman, épris de liberté, conscient de la durée dérisoire des hommes--[Memento]
