Rumi's Circle

a community of lovers

Happy Birthday Mevlana!

Today is Mevlana Rumi’s birthday. May his light be blessed and continue to shine down upon us.

Didn’t I say, don’t sit with sad companions?
Don’t sit with anyone but those whose hearts are glad.
Since you are in the garden, don’t cosy up to thorns.
Sit amidst the roses, jonquils, and jasmine.

[Quatrains 1518, tr. Kabir Helminski]
