Rumi, Day by Day by Maryam Mafi (Author, Translator)

Here is a daily companion that provides Rumi’s wisdom and spiritual insight. These poems have been selected on the basis of the poignancy of their message and their relevance to contemporary life.

This is timeless wisdom translated for modern readers. It is a guide for meditation and a light switch that you can turn on to make your daily connection with spirit. Use these words as tools to better your life each day, to draw continued guidance, inspiration and spiritual wealth.

Maryam Mafi was born and raised in Iran. She went to Tufts University in the U.S. in 1977 where she studied Sociology and Literature. While reading for her Master’s degree in International Communications at American and Georgetown Universities she began translating Persian literature and has been doing so ever since. Reading Rumi’s poetry, she says, has led her to a ‘re-education’ in her own language and a new appreciation of her spiritual heritage.
