Rumi - Divani Shamsi Tabriz - Every fair shape you have seen



Type of spiritual experience

A description of the experience

Selected Poems from the Divani Shamsi Tabriz – R A Nicholson

Every fair shape you have seen, every deep saying you have heard
Be not cast down that it perished; for that is not so.........

Every form you see has its archetype in the placeless world
If the form perished, no matter, since its original is everlasting


The source of the experience

Rumi, Jalaladdin
