Banyen's Description: 

This beautiful abridgement of Rumi’s oceanic masterwork The Mathnawi (it spans three enormous volumes in the original) offers readers a worthy entry into the treasury of stories and poems that make up this great work, which was forty-three years in the writing. During the past seven hundred years, this book, called by Iranians ‘the Koran in Persian,’ a tribute paid to no other book, has occupied a central place in Sufism.

Rumi’s name is associated with the founding of the Order known in
Europe as the ‘Whirling Dervishes,’ and in the East as ‘the Path of the Master.’

Often called “the greatest mystical poet of any age,” Jalaluddin Rumi (1207-1273) makes plain to the pilgrim the secrets of the Way of Unity. This elegant abridged edition, which brings us many of the great stories and teachings, is printed in two colours and makes a fine gift.
