About the Project

UNESCO announced the year 2007 as "800 years of Rumi's legacy" and the world will celebrate his memory. It is very intriguing that among all, a Moslem poet is rising to international reverence in a time when Islam is equated with terrorism, conflicts, and war. On this journey of discovery we unfold the mysteries of Persian mystic Rumi's poems and the hidden knowledge behind the ritual of whirling dervishes.*
