Making Room for Rumi

The first time I heard Coleman Barks read Rumi I was baffled. Somehow, a Southern accent and Rumi's timeless poetry didn't seem to go together. But they do. Barks has done wonders to get Rumi's souful wisdom into the world marketplace. His reading has grit, gravitas, and good vibes. Enjoy!

i believe the Persians ruled India, or at least parts of it, for a while. seems like Iranian history may have a few interesting surprises waiting for the mullahs.
