Mystical scholar Andrew Harvey offers fresh interpretations of more than 250 selections from Rumi's major works.
The works of Sufi mystic and poet Jalad-ud-Din Rumi have been revered in the East for centuries. Now, Western seekers and lovers of poetry are discovering Rumi in unprecedented numbers. Harvey uses these poems, quotations, and parables from Rumi's major works, the Discourses, the Diwan, the Mathnawi, the Odes, and the Rubiyat, as well as excerpts from his letters to re-create the stages of the spiritual journey into Love.
Anyone interested in spirituality will find Light Upon Light a rich source of guidance, encouragement, and profound inspiration.
Thirty-five evocative black-and-white photographs by Eryk Hanut complement and illuminate the text.
