CRAZY AS WE ARE by First Last

This book is a collection of 128 previously untranslated rubais, or quatrains (four line poems which express one complete idea), of Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi (1184 - 1273 A.D.) one of the greatest mystics of all time. As a respected scholar of his day Rumis world was turned upside-down upon meeting the Beloved in the form of a wandering Dervish beggar, Shems of Tebriz. When the scholars students, jealous of their masters new attachment to the beggar, murdered Shems, Rumi went mad. He whirled in pain driving himself beyond into ecstasy. In the midst of his whirling dance he spoke the thousands of lines that have come down to us as his poetry. CRAZY AS WE ARE comes from the second volume of the Divan-i Kebir (a compilation of 44,834 verses with 1764 rubais) written in 1368. As the translator, Dr. Nevit O. Ergin, explains in his introduction, Mevlana cannot be contained in any number of volumes. My humble contribution is just a glimpse of this unmatched treasure. The United Nations has designated 1993 as The year of Mevlana & that will mean a world-wide focus of attention on this great poets contribution to poetry & religious thought.
