He died in 1273
He died in 1273, but his poetry, his depth of feeling, and his mystical insight made "Our Master" (Mowlana or Mevlana) Rumi the most celebrated mystical poet in the Islamic world, from the Balkans to Bengal and everywhere else Persian was used as a literary, historical and learned language. Artists, poets, scholars, diplomats and thinkers have recognised his superlative achievement, and in honour of the 800th anniversary of his birth, Unesco declared 2007 a commemorative year, striking a medal with the poet's imagined likeness.

Poetry is one of the most useful expressions of a mystic's inner experiences. By nature a mystic is able to access a state of consciousness that is beyond the usual awarenes of human's. At a certain stage mystics and great seekers have said it is impossible to describe the consciousness they have attained.
