RUMI Initiation

RUMI Initiation

A Sufi story that relates the initiation of Rumi as a transcendent encounter between two human beings. In the life of every spiritual seeker, who dares everything to reach the essential nothingness, unpredictable things can happen. This is the case with Rumi. In December 2021, we went to Turkey to visit the place where the mystic and poet extraordinaire Rumi lived and died. As we entered his mausoleum, we saw details that connected us with his work. There came to us the resounding call to share this love story of a great human being who chose to leave the study of the sacred scriptures to dedicate himself to what he called his students, to whom he gave himself ultimately to transfer his essence to them. His school has become a museum that reminds us of the divine-human experience in the encounter, a source of inspiration to people worldwide to recover those bonds of love. By merging with the master, Rumi’s initiation gave birth to a path of spiritual search based on the pure gaze.
