Dr. Ali Arsanjani, a Rumi scholar who is versed in the tradition of Rumi's "Erfan" poetry, or mystical Sufi poetry, is starting a new series of M.U.M. Library lectures that systematically explore the work of the great Persian poet Jalal ad-Din Rumi. Recently, Dr. Arsanjani joined Rustin Larson at KRUU to record an introduction to Rumi's work and to talk about the upcoming lecture which will focus on a story in the famous Book of the Sun and one poem from the Masnavi Maanavi (Couplets of Inner Meaning). Says Arsanjani, "Rumi's poetry touches deep within us and resonates with our experiences of life and spirituality, regardless of denomination. It celebrates the passion of the human spirit in its quest of Unity with the Divine." Dr. Arsanjani's lecture, "Rumi Returns," will be at the MUM Library, North Lounge, Tuesday night, December 16th at 8:00 pm. For those who would like to know more about Rumi, please visit the Rumi blog. It offers a rich selection of Dr. Arsanjani's translations and commentaries.
Dear Listeners; Our Lord reigneth He is clothed with Majesty; Our Lord is clothed with strength, He hath girded himself: Our world is established, that it cannot be moved. Thy Throne, established of old: thou art from everliving.
