By Hafiz,Daniel Ladinsky
To Persians , the poems of Hafiz will not be "classical literature" from a distant prior yet loved knowledge from an expensive and intimate good friend that stay quoted in way of life. With uncanny perception, Hafiz captures the various types and levels of affection. His poetry outlines the phases of the mystic's "path of love"-a trip during which love dissolves own obstacles and barriers to affix greater techniques of progress and transformation.
With this gorgeous assortment, Ladinsky has succeeded brilliantly in translating the essence of 1 of Islam's maximum poetic and non secular voices.
"If you have not but had the pride of eating with Daniel Ladinsky's candy, playful renderings of the musings of the nice saints, I Heard God Laughing is an ideal appetizer. . . .

Ladinsky is a grasp who can be remembered for eventually bringing Hafiz alive within the West."—Alexandra Marks, The Christian technological know-how Monitor
