  • The Sufi poet Mawlānā Jalāl-ad-Dīn Balkhi Muhammad Rūmī once wrote, some eight hundred years ago: "I am neither a Moslem nor a Hindu. I am not Christian, Zoroastrian, nor Jew." We were together on stage, two generations, two cultures, two religions, two languages. He knew only Farsi and Russian. I knew only Norwegian and English.
    But we told the same story.

    "I eliminated duality with joyous laughter
    Saw the unity of here and the hereafter
    Unity is what I sing, unity is what I speak
    Unity is what I know, unity is what I seek"
