About UsINTRODUCTION TO RUMI
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī
(Persian: جلالالدین محمد رومی), also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, Mawlānā/Mevlânâ (“our master”), Mevlevî/Mawlawī (“my master”), and more popularly simply as Rumi was born in 1207 and died in Konya Turkey on 17 December 1273.
Rumi is one of the greatest poets of all ages with his poems on love, justice and spiritual freedom, accompanied by mystical passion and pain.
It is mentioned that Mahatma Gandhi, was very fond of the following lines from Rumi:
We did not come to this world to destroy, divide or break. We came to fix the broken, bring together the separated and serve as a bridge between the enemies.
Rumi’s message is universal and his call is for the whole of humanity.
At his funeral, Muslims, Christians, Jews, Arabs, Persians, Turks and Romans honored him. Listen to his call for seekers of truth:
Come, come, whoever you are, Wanderer, Worshiper, lover of leaving, It doesn’t matter, Ours is not a caravan of despair, Come, even if you have broken your vow a hundred times, Come, yet again, come, come.
Rumi’s love and honour for all religious traditions were not always popular in his day, and often provoked criticism from the more dogmatic. Rumi’s poetry has captured the hearts of spiritual seekers around the world because of its depth and beauty. His verses sketch out the whole panorama of life, from human sorrow and devotion to the universal breadth of God’s hidden plan. His poetry seems fathomless and endless.
Today, decision-makers, politicians, and influencers need to introduce permanent policies and solutions for all the problems that face humanity today.
Problems such as conflicts, wars and climate change. We believe Rumi’s universal message and his deep wisdom, philosophy and holistic approach to problems, is the cornerstone of today’s academics, politicians, policymakers, lawyers and administrators who are in search of a worldly sustainable solution and for a source of inspiration for solving our global problems.
Even though today Rumi is more widely known as a poet, he is more than a poet, he is an enlightened being and a rare wise man – a highly enlightened philosopher who gave us a valid universal message to the whole of humanity and for all ages. He interprets the people, the humanity, life and our values in a holistic approach and brings forward solutions for the problems and dilemmas of today for humanity.
Rumi was a pure instrument of the Divine, a Flute, upon which God played an exquisite song.
Rumi always declared that all his poetry & wisdom come not from him, but through him, from the Divine.
