Journey to the Beloved: Sufi Poems by Yunus Emre
Yunus Emre, Ersin Balci (tr.)
I have not come for selfish assertions,
My task is Love;
The heart is God's abode,
And I am here to build hearts.
Yunus Emre, one of the foremost exponents of Turkish Sufi thought and poetry, lived in Anatolia in the 13th century.
This work is a selection and translation of 50 of Yunus's poems from his Divan.
