6 editions published between 1975 and 1994 in English and held by 139 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

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

23 editions published between 1906 and 2010 in English and Persian and held by 61 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. Whinfield's translation and commentary, these tales--filled with Sufi wisdom, insight, and humor--are wonderfully accessible to a wide audience."--Publisher description

14 editions published between 1882 and 1901 in English and Persian and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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]
