Rumi: Hidden Music

Rumi - Hidden MusicI actually purchased this book several years ago.  It was in the bargain books section.

I just got around to reading it today.

This is a visually beautiful book.  There is a lot of abstract artwork in it.  I am not really a fan of abstract art, but I really appreciate the artwork in here and recognize its beauty.

Many of the poem translations struck deep cords within me.  Having said that, many of the poems did not.

Hidden Music is the first of anything written by Rumi that I read.

The poems in this book are basically a celebration of the love of God.  God is referred to as the Beloved.  I think ‘Beloved’ is a beautiful way to refer to God.  I just found some of the translations a bit confusing, while others I was able to grasp the deeper meaning.
