“Out beyond ideas of
and wrongdoing
There is a field.
I will meet you there.”
~ Rumi


Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi,(1207 A.D – 1273 A.D) also known as Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi and popularly known as Mevlana in Turkey and Mawlana in Iran and Afghanistan but known to the English-speaking world simply as Rumi  was a 13th-century Persian Muslim poet, jurist, theologian, and Sufi mystic. Rumi is a descriptive name meaning “Roman” since he lived most of his life in an area called “Rum” (then under the control of Seljuq dynasty) because it was once ruled by the Eastern Roman Empire. He was one of the figures who flourished in the Sultanate of Rum.
