The Music of the Reeds: The Spiritual Journey of Jalaludin Balkhi Known as RUMI
"The Music of The Reeds" speaks about the inner feelings, aspirations, and agonies of Jalaludin Rumi and the glory of love in his personal life that made him to become the greatest mystic poet of all times.
Mowlana Jalaludin Balkhi, known also as Rumi was born in Balkh, Afghanistan in 1206 AD. His father Bahaudin-walad, the most prestigious scholar of Khurasan decided to leave Balkh and move to Konya, Turkey just before the Mongolian invasion of Islamic countries in 1221 AD.
The story begins with Jalaludin's childhood when he was joyfully playing with his friends in the reed beds in the city of Balkh, and continues until he meets Shams Tabrizi, and a young girl by name of Kimia, the two people that Jalaludin was deeply touched and inspired by to think differently.
