About the Author

Maryam Mafi was born and raised in Iran. She went to Tufts University in the U.S. in 1977 where she studied Sociology and Literature. While reading for her Master's degree in International Communications at American and Georgetown Universities she began translating Persian literature and has been doing so ever since. Reading Rumi's poetry, she says, has led her to a 're-education' in her own language and a new appreciation of her spiritual heritage.

Praise For…

"Carefully selected from a book of Rumi's teaching poems, these daily meditations are intended to add insight and, sometimes prodding, as we journey through our own consciousness in pursuit of spiritual growth. They cut through the clutter and confusion of the physical world and remind us that the choices we make are crucial and that the answers can be difficult but are always simple when we remember what's at stake. Maryam Mafi knows Rumi as a realist whose writings bring us back to ourselves with unrelenting clarity. Her selection of Rumi verses, 365 of them, is inspired and heart-felt. Though they appear almost commonplace at first reading, your customers will find that if they meditate on them day by day as the title suggests, they will be lifted into a world where negativity has become a glaring disruption in an increasingly harmonious field. It's a terrific introduction to Rumi's poetry and a serious nondenominational healing tool as well." -Anna Jedrzieweki, Retailing Insight October 2014
