*Selected poems and rubaiyat by RUMI as the main part of the program
*Brief introduction of RUMI
* Happy Birthday Song for RUMI
* Cutting Birthday Cake for RUMI by the presenters and crew of the program with an inspirational conclusion of the program as quoted below:
"RUMI's 800th Birthday cake was whole at the beginning as the World! We have divided it into many slices as we did for the World.
In both cases, each slice of the cake and each of us is part of the whole world!
ALL things --animals, plants and people, we are made of the same elements; whether it is a cake, rock or human beings...
We are also part of the whole UNIVERSE, and we are all interconnected in soul, mind and matter.
For this reason, our aim MUST be "TO UNITE" but NOT "to be divided."
Dear RUMI: On Your Birth Year, we wish you to be remembered for another 800 years..."
