A B O U T R U M I
Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rumi popularly known as Rumi was a 13th-century persian mystic poet whose writings have never ceased to influence the word to this date. Rumi’s works are written mostly in Persian, but occasionally he also used Turkish, Arabic, and Greek in his verse. His Mathnawī, composed in Konya, is considered one of the greatest poems of the Persian language. He is regarded as one of the most popular and accomplished poets of all times, and he has been best selling poet in the United States of America. Rumi’s work is so relevant to the modern day world that it trends on internet even to this date. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world’s languages and transposed into various formats.
His Masnavi (Mathnawi), composed in Konya, is considered one of the greatest poems of the Persian language. The Masnavi, or Masnavi-i-Ma’navi, also written Mesnevi, Mathnawi or Mathnavi, is an extensive poem written in Persian. It is one of the best known and most influential works of Sufism. The Masnavi is a series of six books of poetry that together amount to around 25,000 verses or 50,000 lines. It is a spiritual text that teaches Sufis how to reach their goal of being truly in love with God.
His works are widely read today in their original language across Greater Iran and the Persian-speaking world. Translations of his works are very popular, most notably in Turkey, Azerbaijan, the United States and South Asia. His poetry has not only influenced Persian literature, but also Turkish, Ottoman Turkish, Azerbaijani as well as the literature of some other Turkic, Iranian and Indo-Aryan languages including Chagatai, Urdu and Pashto.
Rumi believed passionately in the use of music, poetry and dance as a path for reaching God. For Rumi, music helped devotees to focus their whole being on the divine and to do this so intensely that the soul was both destroyed and resurrected. It was from these ideas that the practice of whirling Dervishes developed into a ritual form.

Life itself is an ironical battle of sorts, where we strive hard to control and win the world but often fail to control our own lives.
