Who is Mevlana Jelaluddin Rumi?

Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi lived from 1207 to 1273; born in Balkh, Afghanistan, and passing on from Konya, Turkey. He was a highly trained religious scholar and Sufi who threw away his books on meeting the sun of his life, the dervish saint Shems of Tabriz. Inspired by his love for him, he composed volumes of poetry now regarded as some of humanity’s greatest spiritual literature.

The Mevlevi Sufi Order follows the path he opened.
