You can't add more Rumi's Little Book of Love and Laughter to the cart.

Rowdy, ecstatic, and sometimes stern, these teaching stories and fables reveal new and very human properties in Rumi's vision. Included here are the notorious "Latin parts" that Reynold Nicholson felt were too unseemly to appear in English in his 1920s translation. For Rumi, anything that human beings do--however compulsive--affords a glimpse into the inner life.

Here are more than 40 fables or teaching stories that deal with love, laughter, death, betrayal, and the soul. The stories are exuberant, earthy, and bursting with vitality--much like a painting by Hieronymus Bosch or Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. The characters are guilty, lecherous, tricky, ribald, and finally possessors of opened souls.

Barks writes: "These teaching stories are a kind of scrimshaw--intricately carved, busy figures, confused and threatening, and weirdly funny.

This is an entertaining collection from one of the greatest spiritual poets of all time, rendered by his most popular translator.

"The minute I heard my first love story, I started looking for you, not knowing how blind that was. Lovers don't finally meet somewhere. They're in each other all along."--Rumi

Use the crystals in meditation, journaling, contemplation and guidance, by placing it on your body, carrying in your pocket, bag, or by placing it near you on your night table or work space. Read into the message and meaning behind the crystal, look at it, and absorb the positive energy from it.

How to Clean Crystals

    • Place in presence of candle light
    • Cover with sea salt for 24 hours
    • Clear using Sage/Palo Santo
    • Place around Tibetan Singing Bowl or Bells while using them
    • Bury in sand, soil or brown rice over night
    • Lightwork – connect to Divine light and "visualize" a clearing light getting rid of negative energy and charging your crystals
