The Rubais Of Rumi: Insane With Love

Rumi, the renowned 13th-century Persian poet and mystic, continues to captivate the hearts and minds of millions with his profoundly inspiring works. Among his numerous literary contributions, the Rubais stand out as a testament to his passionate exploration of love, spirituality, and the human experience. In this article, we delve into the enchanting world of Rumi's Rubais, exploring their themes, unraveling their mystical language, and immersing ourselves in the passionate embrace of love that permeates each verse.

The Essence Of Rumi's Rubais

The Rubais, also known as quatrains, are four-line poetic compositions that encapsulate Rumi's profound wisdom and spiritual insights. These mystical poems touch upon various themes, weaving together elements of love, devotion, introspection, and the nature of existence. They invite readers to embark upon a spiritual journey and traverse the realms of the heart and soul, seeking mystical union with the divine.

The Language Of Love and Longing

Rumi's Rubais utilize a language of love and longing that reaches deep into the souls of those who encounter them. Filled with rich metaphors, powerful symbolism, and a captivating blend of sensuous and spiritual imagery, these poems evoke intense emotions and awaken a longing for divine union. Each verse invites readers to shed their ego, embrace vulnerability, and immerse themselves in love's transformative power.

Exploring Themes of Spiritual Love

At the heart of Rumi's Rubais lies the exploration of spiritual love – a love that transcends the physical realm and seeks a union with the divine. These poems beautifully articulate the yearning of the human soul to reconnect with its divine source. They remind us of the inherent spiritual nature of our existence and inspire us to embark on a journey of self-discovery, seeking ultimate truth and spiritual enlightenment.

The Dance Of Ecstasy and Despair

Rumi's Rubais often paint a vivid picture of the dance between ecstasy and despair that lovers of the divine experience. Through poignant metaphors, Rumi portrays the intense longing and separation that humans often feel in their quest for spiritual fulfillment. These poems convey both the ecstasy of divine union and the depths of despair in separation, inviting readers to embrace all aspects of the human experience and find solace in the eternal dance of love.

The Rubais: A Source Of Inner Transformation

Reading and reflecting upon Rumi's Rubais can have a profound impact on one's inner journey. These poems have the ability to stir the depths of the heart and awaken a yearning for a deeper connection with the divine. Through their beauty and richness of language, they offer a window into the realm of spiritual ecstasy, acting as a guide towards inner transformation and profound self-realization.

The Rubais of Rumi, with their enchanting language and themes of love, devotion, and spirituality, continue to enchant readers across centuries. Their timeless message speaks to the depths of the human soul and invites us all to embark on a journey of self-discovery and spiritual unity. As we delve into the world of Rumi's Rubais, we find ourselves swept away by the intoxicating power of love and inspired to cultivate a deeper connection with the divine. Let Rumi's words ignite the flame of longing within, guiding us towards the ultimate truth and the realization that we are all, in essence, insane with love.

The first English translation of the rubais of Rumi

• Presents 233 of the most evocative of Rumi’s 1,700 rubais

• Shows that the mystical embrace is the way to directly experience the Divine

Rumi is well known for the over 44,000 verses that appear in a 23-volume collection called the Divan-i Kebir. Yet Rumi also composed 1,700 rubais, short aphorisms and observations, whose depth and message belie their brevity.

The form of rubais first became well known through the 11th-century collection The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. But unlike Khayyam, who like most poets would sit and carefully craft each word, Rumi would compose and speak his poems through the spontaneous “language of poetry” that poured from his lips as he traveled the streets of Konya, Anatolia (present-day Turkey). Very few of Rumi’s rubais have been translated into any of the languages of the contemporary Western world. Now, Nevit O. Ergin, the translator of the complete Divan-i Kebir, and Will Johnson present here 233 of the most evocative of Rumi’s 1,700 rubais.

Rumi’s poetry expresses profound and complex truths in beautiful yet simple language. He reveals that by going deep into the interior of our heart and soul, we can arrive at a place in which we once again merge and connect with the divine. This mystical quest, Rumi contends, is the birthright of us all. Anything less than a complete dissolving into the world of divine union will not provide the satisfaction and peace that we all seek. The simple, yet profound spiritual truths and visions contained in The Rubais of Rumi lead the way to the path of reconnection to the direct energies of God.
