His teachings include scathing attacks against Brahmanical pride, caste prejudice and the very concept of untouchability, as well as exposing the dogmatism and bigotry he perceived around him. Unusually, even for his time, he was embraced by disciples who had been raised in both Hindu and Muslim traditions, who saw in him the embodiment of a life-affirmative approach that transcended the narrow dogmas that divide people and set them against one another. Here, Osho introduces readers to this extraordinary mystic and his songs, bringing both to light in such a way as to show how they are both timeless and utterly relevant to our time. The path of love as described by Osho, and though the songs of Kabir, is a journey that seeks out and celebrates the divine that is hidden in the ordinary, the love that becomes not just a feeling one has, but ultimately a state of being that one is.

Seven centuries after his death, Jelaluddin Rumi maintains a unique position of significance in the hearts and minds of people today. It is the deep emotional power of this extraordinary man that has made his poetry become the epitome of the romantic, passionate voice we all long to express. This beautifully designed box contains a page book and 50 lavishly illustrated cards. One side of each card depicts a glorious color illustration drawn from original Persian classical art; and on the other side there is a Rumi poem. The book includes a history of Rumi's life, and explanation of the Sufi path of Love and interpretations of all the poems. Manuela Dunn Mascetti has culled Kabir and Camille Helminski's translations of Rumi for the great Sufi's most sublime statements on love. In addition, she has combed the vast stores of Persian art, choosing a lush painting to accompany each poem.
