About the Event
"I belong to no religion, my religion is love. Every heart is my temple." (Jalal-Adin Rumi)
Join us as we read from the beautiful poetry of Rumi.
Jalal-Adin Muhammad Balkhi, who is mostly known simply as Rumi (1207-1273), was a Persian poet, scholar, philosopher, teacher and a Sufi mystic.
In his writings and teachings, Rumi describes how love grows and ripens when one is transcending towards the Divine. He encourages his listeners to be awake and to live, showing us glory and beauty in ourselves and each other...
“Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshipper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. Come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.”
Join us in a celebration of life and love!
This is a free event.
