“If you haven’t yet had the delight of dining with Daniel Ladinsky’s sweet, playful renderings of the musings of the great saints, I Heard God Laughing is a perfect appetizer. . . . This newly released edition of his first playful foray into Hafiz’s divinely inspired poetry is essential reading . . . . Ladinsky is a master who will be remembered for finally bringing Hafiz alive in the West.” —Alexandra Marks, The Christian Science Monitor

A quote follows from just one poem which evokes an inner peace in which we can truly "rest" while we are in the lifelong journey of "waking up!"
"I wish I could show you.
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The Astonishing Light
Of your own Being."
