Details:  The Gift - Poems by Hafiz : The Great Sufi Master,
Paperback - 345 pages,
Translated by Daniel Ladinsky.

 
Description :

Celebrates one of Islam's greatest poetic voices and renowned spiritual leaders with a collection of 250 mystical healing poems.


More than any other Persian poet--even Rumi--Hafiz expanded the mystical, healing dimensions of poetry. Because his poems were often ecstatic love songs from God to his beloved world, many have called Hafiz the "Invisible Tongue." Indeed, Daniel Ladinsky, the accomplished translator of this volume, has said that his work with Hafiz is an attempt to do the impossible: to translate Light into words--to make the Luminous Resonance of God tangible to our finite senses.

 
'' I am

a hole in a flute

that the Christ's breath moves

through--

listen to this

music!''

 

With this stunning collection of 250 of Hafiz's most intimate poems, Ladinsky has succeeded brilliantly in translating the essence of one of Islam's greatest poetic and religious voices. Each line of The Gift imparts the wonderful qualities of this master Sufi poet and spiritual teacher: encouragement, an audacious love that touches lives, profound knowledge, generosity, and a sweet, playful genius unparalleled in world literature.
