Born in Afghanistan in the thirteenth century, Rumi settled in Turkey and became a great mystical poet.

From a holy man, Shamsuddin, Rumi learned to listen for the sacred sound of God within himself.

When his creative spirit was awakned, he recited more than 5, rhymed couplets.

He also wrote about the love that resides in the soul of everyone, regardless of religion or background.

He founded the order of the whirling dervishes, who believed their spinning dances put them in touch with God and brought peace and love into the world.

To honor the 8th anniversary of his birth, the United Nations declared 27 The Year of Mawlana Jalaladdin Rumi.
