The Spiritual Teachings Of Rumi The Sufi Path Of Love

This is the most accessible work in English on the greatest mystical poet of Islam, providing a survey of the basic Sufi and Islamic doctrines concerning god and the world, the role of man in the cosmos, the need for religion, man’s ultimate becoming, the state and the station of the mystical ascent to God, and the means whereby literature employs symbols to express “unseen” realities. William Chittick translates into English for the first certain aspects of Rumi’s work. He selected and rearranges Rumi’s poetry and prose in order to leave aside unnecessary complications characteristic of other English translations and to present Rumi’s ideas in an orderly fashion, yet in his own words. Thorough, non-technical introduction to each chapter, and selection that gradually present a greater variety of terms and images, make this work easily accessible to those interested in the spirituality of any tradition.

It is superbly conceived and guides the reader through the theory, practice, and mystical realisation of Rumi’s thinking… I can think of no better way for a westerner, and now a day for a westernised Muslim to get to know the deeper aspects of the Islamic faith than through a work such as this. As for as I am aware of, it is the first work of its kind, providing the reader with a complete exposition of Rumi’s fundamental notions through Rumi’s own words. No one else has done this with the thoroughness and meticulousness shown by Chittick.”  ─ Victor Danner, Indiana University
