BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: According to the holistic approach, in examining the content of a text, one should pay attention to the principle that the understanding of the text in the real sense is achieved when the unit of analysis of the text is considered as a whole. Otherwise, the text cannot be cited for research. The researcher"s lack of attention to the text as a whole causes problem in understanding the text; sometimes, these problems are acute and increase the complexity of the text. This problem has also arisen in reading and understanding Maulavi"s Mathnawi. Reading part by part and focusing on the verse has caused the spiritual Mathnawi to be presented as a confused and disorderly work among the massive scholars. This research aims to change the approach, i.e., focus on semantic units larger than verse, to reach the existing order in the expression of Mathnawis. METHODOLOGY: The research method is based on the goal; Descriptive-analytical, and in terms of collecting information, it is a library documentary. FINDINGS: According to the findings of this research, the connection of Mathnawi content is intermittent. Alternation in the Mathnawi is alternating the non-narrative (educational) part and the narrative (parable) part. CONCLUSION: The topics presented in the non-narrative and narrative parts are connected like chain links in such a way that after each non-narrative link, there is a narrative link that has the role of an allegory or supplement. The educational materials are related and complementary if we do not consider the narrative circles. Therefore, the connection of academic content in the Mathnawi is a circular sequence.
