A short life-sketch inscribed on poetic temperament and wise saying of all time great mystics, the wisdom of East, Jalaluddin Rumi may not only enhance goodwill between the old world of thought and new of action but revive the true spirit of charity as well.The object of the editors of this series is a very definite one. They desire above all things that, in their humble way, these books shall be the ambassadors of goodwill and understanding between East and West, the old world of Thought, and the new of Action. In this endeavour, and in their own sphere, they are but followers of the highest example in the land.
