What may be the biggest eye-opener is that Jalaluddin Rumi was a Muslim Saint and religious scholar. Poetry only came later on when he delved into mysticism. His collection ‘Dars e-Mathnawi’ is a collection of mystical poems and in actual fact has nothing to do with worldly love. Rumi’s love is projected towards God and nobody else. He is in a state of nirvana which is why he talks about love so often, he is blinded by it and cares about nothing else. His poems and stories are used in many ways but his recognition has become for something else. Nonetheless, a nice written piece on master Rumi.
