About Whirling Dervishes at Mevlana Festival

 

Few have not heard of Turkish Whirling Dervishes a masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Ecstatic spinning accompanied with playing orchestra and chanting refrain is a genuinely spellbinding spectacle. The mystic dance is clearly a unique form of worship. The whirl itself symbolises the universe, the right hand of a Dervish factors to the heaven to take God's well-being, and the left one points to the floor to bypass that goodness to humans.

 

The ritual is part of the Sema ceremony practised by means of the Mevlevi Order in Islam. It was based in 13th century by using a Sufi  poet named Jelaleddin or Celaleddin Rumi. The poet lived in the city of Konya for the remaining forty five years of his existence until his so-known as "wedding night time"—in mid-December of 1273 Rumi departed from this bodily global and reunited together with his Beloved God.

 

Similar Whirling Dervish performances additionally take place on a everyday basis inside the town of Ankara and Istanbul, within the place of Cappadocia, and different locations.
