This newly translated anthology of Rumi's poetry, with accompanying commentaries, aims to uncover the true meaning held within his cherished verse. The version of Rumi that has become known as 'the best-selling poet in North America' is not a true one. The time has come to reveal more of Rumi. To challenge the seriously inaccurate portrayal of a new age guru who seemingly embraced, far ahead of his time, some of the heresies and vices most disliked in traditional Islam. This brilliant work, through careful selections from his work and accompanying commentaries, will bring readers closer to his poetry's true, traditional meaning and the man himself, and his position as a great Islamic scholar, teacher and saint. 'Everyone has, in their view, become my close friend but they have not sought out the secrets within me.' -- Rumi About the Author Dr. Muhammad Isa Waley is Lead Curator for Persian and Turkish Collections at the British Library, London.

The bestselling poet in America today, thirteenth-century Sufi mystic Jalalu'ddin Rumi has inspired and enlightened thousands with his playful, passionate work celebrating the sacred in everyday life. Now the spiritual wealth of Rumi's stories and poetry in translation are accompanied by rare and wonderful art in the Sufi tradition. This fresh rendering brings new life to these incomparable parables, which have transcended time, place, culture, and religion to speak directly to the hearts and souls of contemporary readers. With a foreword by Huston Smith, these selections of the inimitable mystic's prose and poetry have been taken from all of the master's works. Each parable, such as The King and the Handmaiden, The Grocer and the Parrot, The Ugly Old Woman, and The Man Who Was Always Being Swindled, is related as Rumi might have presented it to his fascinated audiences, as he whirled in meditation and trance. But each story also has a spiritual message, a holy essence that applies across all faiths, uttered from the heart of Islam. Each of these messages is provided here in a modern rendering that keeps the flavor of this unique period of history, of culture, and of inspired, passionate beauty.

Love is the Wine presents an intoxicating mix of essays to satisfy the spiritual thirst of those with long experience in Islam, as well as those encountering Sufism and the meaning of spiritual love for the first time. Themes including generosity, faith, self-knowledge, patience, and love are developed with stories and teachings by Turkish Sufi master Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak. A mesmerizing storyteller, master teacher, and prolific author in his native country, he was ideally suited to bring the richness of the Sufi tradition to the West. The chapters of this book, skillfully edited and compiled by the psychologist and Sufi teacher Dr. Robert Frager, were derived from talks given during Sheikh Muzafffer’s visits to New York and California over the last years of his life. Sheikh Muzaffer Ozak understood Westerners as almost no Sufi master before him has. His religious bookshop in Istanbul attracted hundreds of Western seekers visiting Turkey. In his travels, he initiated hundreds of Americans and Europeans into the Halveti Jerrahi Order, interpreted their dreams, and answered their questions about everything from theology and mysticism to marriage and earning a living. These stories and teachings are memorable, yet highly enigmatic, and meant to be told and retold. Like great spiritual parables, the themes are universal and their applications ageless. The astute reader will appreciate new levels of meaning in these profound teaching tales with each reading. Love is the Wine is a treasury filled with priceless items of Sufi wisdom.

"This book explains why no one engaged in religious and cultural studies can afford to disregard the urgent message of the traditionalists who have reminded a forgetful world - in a manner which can be ignored but not refuted - of those principles which everywhere and always remain true. It also demonstrates why any reassessment of contemporary values - now increasingly called into question - must take into account the profound traditionalist critique of the modern Western worldview."--BOOK JACKET.

"My heart wandered through the world constantly seeking after my cure, but the sweet and delicious water of life had to break through the granite of my heart." When the words of Rumi enter your heart, something softens, breaks, and is subtly reborn. That he wrote the words seven hundred years ago in a medieval Persian world that bears little resemblance to ours makes their uncanny resonance to us today just that much more remarkable. Here is a treasury of daily wisdom from this most beloved of all the Sufi masters—both his prose and his ecstatic poetry—that you can use to start every day for a year, or that you can dip into for inspiration any time you need to break through the granite of your heart.
