A kilim and prayer for Iran

Last fall, a kilim—a rug made in the Tabriz Valley in Iran—taught me a useful spiritual lesson.

I was in California for my niece’s wedding. While we were at the house, an Iranian neighbor asked for our help turning a large rug she was drying on her garden wall. We struck up a conversation about this beautiful Persian rug and her homeland of Iran. She mentioned she had two rugs for sale, and I decided to purchase the kilim from her.
