Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi was born in Balkh (then a city of Khorasan, now part of Afghanistan) in 1207 CE and died in Konya (in present-day Turkey) in 1273 CE.  Although that was a long time ago, his poetry is considered timeless.

The works of Rumi have been been translated into many languages. A Sufi mystic, he is considered the founder of the Mevlevi order, often referred to as the "Whirling Dervishes."

These prints are Persian calligraphy designed by Mortaza Jalli Farahani and are inspired by Rumi's verses.  It is difficult to translate them precisely, but we can make rough guesses.
