Rumi: Whispers of the Beloved


Welcome to Rumi’s world of Love.  We follow a passionate stream of quatrains as we witness Rumi’s struggle to live without boundaries, and with a love that has inflamed his heart.  As we do, we feel our own hearts grow warmer, softer and brighter with the hope that love brings.  This book is full of short, quick and impactful poetry--my favourite kind! It shows that even one sentence can change your world.

In particular a great read for:

  • Those who wish to introduce themselves to a Sufi perspective on life and way of being.
  • Those who desire to heal through spirituality.  In some parts of the world, Rumi’s poetry has been offered by mental health practitioners as a way of healing the heart and mind, and bringing back purpose and meaning to life.


Beyond a hundred steps of wisdom,

I will be free from good and bad.

Behind the veils I will find

Such splendour, such Beauty

That I will fall in love

With Myself.

-Rumi 1999, 73
