Bill welcomes scholar and translator Peter Booth to the show. Peter
is a Hafiz scholar and translator, co-author of Dante I Hafiz,
and member of the DC area Iranian Culture Association. He studied
Sanskrit and sacred Indian texts at Georgetown University in his
teens, received a B.A. in English Literature from Bard College, and
attended Harvard Graduate School in Persian Language and
Literature, studying with Annemarie Schimmel and Wheeler Thackston.
He then studied Persian Literature at Ferdowsi University of
Mashhad, on a scholarship from the Shah of Iran. For 32 years
he was a resident in Avatar Meher Baba’s home, Meherabad, in rural
India, where he helped build water and electrical
systems, roads, and other infrastructure, and through
extensive afforestation and applied environmental technology,
increased the area's average annual rainfall from 9 to over 20
inches. He also contributed translations to the just relased The
Illuminated Hafiz: Love Poems for the Journey to Light. Don't miss
it!
