Identifier

000531

Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

Rumi clearly used starvation/fasting, but his experiences were fuelled by quite a large number of other factors

A description of the experience

Rumi - Rubaiyat

When you fast for a while
Your nature is cleansed
With the pure of heart
You may enter the garden
To become light
Fast and burn like a candle
Each morsel is the link that
Chains you to the ground

The source of the experience

Rumi, Jalaladdin
