Dance of Love

February 23, 2009

The Persian poet Caleleddin-i-Rumi’s biogrpahy movie ‘Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi: Aşkın Dansı’  [Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi: Dance of Love] moved me with the poetry in it, music & dance – ‘The way of our prophets is the way of Truth. If you want to live, die in Love; die in Love if you want to remain alive…’

Love has nothing to do with
the five senses and the six directions:
its goal is only to experience
the attraction exerted by the Beloved…
(Mathnawi III, 1417-1424)
