Ibn Arabi and Jalal’uddin Rumi


Ibn ‘Arabi and Jalal’uddin Rumi: Potential Giants of the Future  

I read this article on Ibn ‘Arabi and Jalal’uddin Rumi a while back and have been trying to find it again ever since. I was successful last night. I found it in one of my many folders. I think the article from the Independent Weekly is so important because it describes how the whole world can benefit from the words of these two great medieval men of spiritual genius. As the author of the article, Godfrey Cheshire says, they could truly become giants of the future. Rumi is already the best read poet in the US, and Ibn ‘Arabi is gaining steadily in popularity as many dedicated scholars translate his work.
