This book is a collection of Rumi’s poetry. Rumi is one of the world’s famous poet, his poetry is full of spirituality.

Poetry is all about deep understanding of life, the true meaning of love, divinity, spirituality, devotion, equality in all religions, humanity!

I want to share one of the poems from the book which is a source of positive thinking and spiritual practices, there are so many poems that guides us towards positive thinking. But here, I want to share the poem which is close to my heart.

” खुले दिल से – Keep Your Heart Open

ग़मों को अपना साथी बन जाने दो,
मुस्कुरा कर, खुल दिल से।
तब यह मददगार बन जायेगा,
जीवन का मकसद खोजने में,
प्यार और समझदारी के खोज में।
दर्द में वह रवानी है,
वह बहाव है,
कि यह ख़ुद राह बना लेगा,
दोस्त बनकर।

Keep Your Heart Open

Grief can be the garden of compassion.
If you keep your heart open
through everything,
your pain can become
your greatest ally
in your life’s search
for love and wisdom.”

I will recommend this book to everyone, you will enjoy the collection of Rumi’s poetry for sure.
