Jambo, Merhaba !!!!!
UNESCO has named 2007 International Year of Rumi the number-one, best-selling poet of the United States whose verses read by celebrities like Deepak Chopra,Madonna, Goldie Hawn and Demi Moore . According to Time Magazine Rumi is,Mystic of the Century and according to the New York Times Rumi is the most influential poet in America since the 1960s who has outsold Shakespeare . Who is this Mevlana Mohammed Jelaled-din Rumi , that over 700 years after his death his words and thoughts are causing such a stir and Westerns say that Rumi's philosophy is crucial for peace on the planet today?First , here is one way in which he described himself :
Not Christian or Jew or Muslim, not Hindu,
Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion
or cultural system. I am not from the East
or the West, not out of the ocean or up
from the ground, not natural or ethereal, not
composed of elements at all. I do not exist,
am not an entity in this world or the next,
did not descend from Adam and Eve or any
origin story. My place is placeless, a trace
of the traceless. Neither body or soul.
I belong to the beloved, have seen the two
worlds as one and that one call to and know,
first, last, outer, inner, only that
breath breathing human being.
Rumi's popularity is all the more remarkable given the suspicions between America and the Muslim world. What is it about Rumi that attracts so many Americans who says : My Mother is Love My Father is Love My Prophet is Love My God is Love I am a child of Love I have come only to speak of
America and the Muslim world each insist on viewing the other through its own cultural lens. What Americans cherish as freedom, the Muslim world views as tending towards debauchery. What many Muslims consider pious restraint, Americans see as evidence of control by a misogynist theocracy.
Amidst these tensions, Americans from all walks of life are reading Rumi. If the Muslim world and America are so seemingly incomprehensible to each other, how has a medieval dervish from the East nestled so close to America's heart? The answer must be Rumi, was a philosopher and mystic of Islam, but not a Muslim of the orthodox type. His doctrine advocated unlimited tolerance, positive reasoning, goodness, charity and awareness through love. To him and to his disciples all religions were more or less truth. Looking with the same eye on Muslim, Jew and Christian alike, his peaceful and tolerant teaching has appealed to men of all sects and creeds.
Come, come again...
Whatever you are...
Whether you are infidel,
idolater or fireworshipper.
Whether you have broken your vows
of repentance a hundred times
This is not the gate of despair,
This is the gate of hope.
Come, come again...
The biggest hit at last year's Sundance Film Festival, Son of Rambow tells the origin story of the director/producer team of Garth Jennings and Nick Goldsmith - collectively known as Hammer & Tongs.

The Popol Vuh is considered to be the single most important piece of Meso-American literature.
Striking parallels between the Popol Vuh and the Hebrew stories of Genesis powerfully reinforce the notion that members of the ‘Lost Tribes of Israel” eventually made their way somehow from the Middle East to settle in the Americas, ultimately influencing Mayan literature and religion.
The Popol Vuh, A sacred book of the Maya, is thought to have been based on an original Maya codex written in Mayan hieroglyphic script. Recordings of the original stories would therefore pre-date the arrival of Europeans to the Americas by 500 to 1,000 years.
The significance of the book is enormous since it is one of a small number of early Meso-American sacred texts. The mythology it records is believed to correspond closely to that of the Pre-Classic Maya period prior to 250 A.D. The original Mayan hieroglyphic texts have been lost to time.
The first clearly identifiable Maya settlements were established by 1,800 B.C.E. Their descendants survive today in Mexico and Central America. The Popol Vuh continues to play an important role in the belief system of the people of the Quiché-Maya Nation, who were solely responsible for its preservation from the ancient to the present day. The original manuscript was called "The Manuscript of Quiché".
The ‘Tower of Babel’ story of Genesis also has a striking parallel in the Popol Vue.
“And having heard of a city, they went there. All arrived at Tulán. (Possibly Babylon?) It was impossible to count the men who arrived.
And there it was that the speech of the tribes changed; their tongues became different. They could no longer understand each other clearly after arriving at Tulán.
There also they separated. There were some who had to go to the East, but many came here. When they arrived at Tulán, the old traditions say they had traveled far in order to arrive there.”
