MEDIA REVIEWS
"One could live a complete life based on the wondrous words of Rumi. But add images and story, and you have more than enough for a lifetime, an overabundance, which is what Rumi is about-an excess of wisdom, beauty, and pleasure. This book will be one of the few I take wherever I go."-- Thomas Moore, author of "Care of the Soul" and "Original Self""This treasury of wisdom will bring you ecstatic spiritual insights and a profound understanding of yourself and theworld. Keep it by your bedside and read a little bit every day. Enjoy each parable and each verse as you would a gourmet menu."-- Dr. Deepak Chopra
exquisitely designed volume Perhaps the most commendable aspect of The Illustrated Rumi is the Islamic art that provides a luxuriant context for the parables and poems. These designs and plates reveal the truth of the statement from Muslim tradition: God is beautiful and He loves beauty. --Spirituality&Practice
