The Kahlil Gibran International Speakers Tour
25 Sep 2018

COMING SOON! “Love is a quenchless thirst”  The Kahlil Gibran International Speakers Tour COMING SOON! Introduction:  Poet and painter Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931), best known for his most prized work “The Prophet,” has left an undeniable legacy that places him in the upper echelons of world literature, a champion of human rights, and a forerunner of peace and reconciliation.     A painter who became a poet, his short life was often driven by a “quenchless thirst” to create artistic expression as a mouthpiece to foray subjects that highlighted the cries of humanity, the oneness in being, and the understanding of our collective journey as not separate, but unified by the path of the spirit.     Reading between the lines of his pen and brush, tracing his global footprints, and providing context to his life and work, inter...

Translating Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet into Papiamento
22 Apr 2014

By Hilda de Windt-Ayoubi Translating The Prophet started in an almost mystical way. Someone I know, asked me 6 years ago, if I knew Kahlil Gibran. Despite the fact that I wrote him that I did not, he kept mentioning Kahlil’s name once in a while. He wrote me that some aspects of my poems remembered him of this writer.  One day he told me that Kahlil, like my parents, hailed from Lebanon. It was then that I could not close my heart any more. So I went in google-search of this Lebanese writer. When I saw his oeuvre I was really startled. In 2011 my son Faried, bought me The Prophet as a birthday present. I was really touched by this wonderful book. A few months later, I got the second present, a translation into Dutch, De Profeet. While reading this translation, I felt a great desire to translate this marvelous book into Papiamento, our local...

The Prophet of War by Glen Kalem Picture this; you’re a combat soldier in WWII a few thousand miles away from home, hunched down in a murky bunker waiting for your orders to leap out onto the frontline of Normandy. Moreover, you’re the co-pilot flying a United States aircraft loaded with an atomic bomb en route to the Japanese city of Hiroshima… or further still, you’re one of the sixty-eight American servicewomen captured as a POW in the Philippines. Packed in your uniform sits an oblong-shaped paperback – the front cover reads “Armed Services Edition” Next to it, a distinguished catchphrase “This is the complete book – not a digest”; in between is a photograph of the original book cover and an accompanying title with the author’s name, and t...

Prisoners Of Conscience | Prisoners Of Conscience
16 May 2016

Republished  from Huffington Post (Religion) Article By Layli Miron Bahá’í grad student Recently, my husband and I sat spellbound by The Prophet, a gorgeous film adaptation of the 1923 book of poems by Kahlil Gibran. In the film, the prophetic writer and artist, Almustafa (aka Mustafa), is a prisoner of an oppressive government, confined on a Mediterranean island called Orphalese. While the government is not named, various clues point to the Ottoman Empire. The only crime Almustafa has committed is using his faculty for words to advocate for the common folk—which endangers the authorities’ power.
