A Daybook of Spiritual Guidance from the Wisdom of Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi
Selected and translated by Kabir and Camille Helminski
These “jewels” have been taken from Books III-VI of Rumi’s masterpiece, the Mathnawi. A companion volume to the earlier Rumi: Daylight, this daybook may also be read in a turn-to-any-page approach.
Jewels of Remembrance presents 365 concise selections from Rumi’s Mathnawi, one of the world’s greatest spiritual masterpieces, in a translation that touches the heart and mind. In these passages Rumi explores and celebrates the qualities of truth, beauty, generosity, forgiveness, strength, compassion, purity, gratitude, and patience—always patience, for as Rumi says, “Patience is the key to joy.”
Having been immersed in the Sufi tradition for many years, Camille and Kabir Helminski offer translations which preserve the subtlety, tone, and depth of the original texts. In these selections the Master’s many sides are revealed.
