The philosophy of Mysticism has been interpreted by Maulana Rumi to the levels of simplicity. In one of his writings he explains the concept of Mysticism as, the world is a bar, a tempting spot. Numerous wines stream in here-the wine of shade structure and taste, the heady wine of mind and inner self, the smooth wine of instinct, the blazing mix of cravings, the fine port of stories also the cabinet of the singing soul. Each human must enter this spot where hypnotizing assortments of needs are satisfied. However, just when the grape skin of the conscience blasts, the juice streams. At the point when grapes consolidate their juice what’s more are kept to a shut dull space for a period the result is marvelous. Aging is one of the most seasoned images for human change, for the enlivening of the spirit. The Tavern is a sort of magnificent hellfire that people appreciate, endure and long for. At that point, feeling burnt out on it; push off from, in their quest for truth. The bar is perilous locales where now and again masks are essential, be that as it may never close your heart, says Rumi. Keep open there at all times. A falling into disrepair, a shouting out, starts in the bar and the human soul turns to think that it’s way Home.
Jalaluddin Rumi was born on September 30, 1207, in Balkh (in present-day Afghanistan). His dad, Bahaduddin Walad, was a scholar, legal adviser and a mystic, while his mom was Mumina Khatun. At the point when Mongols attacked Central Asia, somewhere around 1215 and 1220, Rumi left Balkh with his family and a gathering of supporters. The moving troop voyaged widely in Muslim terrains, including Baghdad, Damascus, Malatya, Erzincan, Sivas, Kayseri and Nigde. In the wake of performing journey in Mecca, they in the end settled in Konya, found in the present-day western Turkey. Around then, Rumi’s dad was an Islamic scholar, an teacher and an evangelist.

Rumi was a devotee of Sayyed Burhan ud-Din Muhaqqiq Termazi, one of his dad’s students. Under the direction of Sayyed Termazi, he practiced Sufism and procured a considerable measure of information about spiritual matters and mysteries of the spirit world. After the death of his father, in 1231 AD, Rumi acquired his dad’s position and turned into a conspicuous religious educator. He lectured in the mosques of Konya. When Rumi arrived at the age of 24, he had demonstrated himself as a decently educated researcher in the field of religious science.

Rumi was an instructor and a scholar, when in 1244 AD he went over a wandering dervish named Shamsuddin of Tabriz. The gathering turned out to be a defining moment in his life. Shamsuddin and Rumi got to be close companions. Shams went to Damascus, where he was allegedly slaughtered by the students of Rumi who were angry of their close relationship. Rumi communicated his adoration for Shamsuddin and grief at his death, through music, dance and poetry.

For about ten years in the wake of gathering Shamsuddin, Rumi gave himself in composing ghazals. He made a gathering of ghazals and named it Diwan-e-Kabir or Diwan-e Shams-e Tabrizi. From there on, Rumi met a goldsmith – Salaud-Din-e Zarkub – whom he made his friend. At the point when Salaud-Din-e Zarkub passed on, Rumi become friends with one of his most loved supporters named Hussam-e Chalabi. Rumi used the greater part of the later years of his life in Anatolia, where he completed six volumes of his masterwork, the Masnavi.

Rumi departed from the world on seventeenth December 1273 AD, in Konya, inside the Seljuk Empire’s region (as of now it’s inside Turkey). He was buried next to his dad in Konya. A tomb named Mevlana mausoleum was built in Konya, recognizing the extraordinary Sufi artist. It comprises of a mosque, dervish living quarters and a dance hall. The holy site is visited by his admirers originating from distinctive parts of the world.
