There is probably no one more qualified to illuminate the life and work of Jalaluddin Rumi, the great thirteenth-century Sufi mystic and poet, than Andrew Harvey, who possesses the very eloquence and passion he admires in Rumi's work. Harvey likens Rumi to Buddha, Ramakrishna, Shakespeare and Jesus Christ: "For me, I've come to understand the heart of Christ through the heart of Rumi; they seem to me to be linked in the enterprise of bringing all human beings into the fire of the sacred heart." Discover the fire, the madness, the passion and the mystery that is Rumi, revived by a man born to translate his "absolutely lucid but totally molten speech of the Divine heart itself." (hosted by Michael Toms)
