Freedom from Yourself:
Rumi's Selected Poems from Divan Shams Tabrizi
- As interpreted by Alexander King
Alexander King is fortunate to speak Rumi’s language as his mother tongue—the thirteenth century language of Persia—which enabled him to understand the meaning of the words from a deeper perspective.
He spent thirty-five years examining Rumi’s work, mysticism, Sufism, and philosophy. This helped him to interpret Rumi’s words and provide the true meaning behind them as Rumi originally intended.
