Re: "Islam is peace"

Greatings to all,

I would like to introduce you Mevlana, may most of you have not heard about him. He lived about 800 years ago, born as I remember in year 1207...he is a philosopher of Islamic Sufism...He wrote a famous book - Mesnevi, 6 Volume, about 1500 pages as I remember...
The interesting side is, the ideas, the philosphy in some parts reminds O'Sensei's budo - art of peace, love...
Below I found the English Version of Mesnevi on internet

http://www.interactiva.org/Di/Englis...ure/Authors/R/

give you time, and I strongly recommend youto read them...it includes stories, and the philosophy is in the stories...

regards,

Bülent
