Rumi was a thirteen century, Persian poet/philosopher and a Sufi master, who yearned for love, unity, and religious reconciliation across the planet. Many of his 15,000+ verses were translated into the English language beginning in the second half of 19th century by English scholars such as Edward G. Browne, Arberry, and others. Many have spent years studying his life story and philosophy and have written their doctoral dissertation about his life, theology, and philosophy. I am just a lover of Rumi with an eagerness to share his insights with my fellow travelers.
