Daniel Ladinsky is an acclaimed poet and translator of mystical poetry. For six years, he made his home in a spiritual community in western India, where he worked and lived with the intimate disciples and family of Avatar Meher Baba. This is his fourth volume of Hafiz poetry in translation. His other books include Darling, I Love You!, The Gift, The Purity of Desire, A Year with Hafiz, and The Subject Tonight is Love, as well as a collection of translations of poems by twelve mystics and saints, Love Poems from God.
"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
