in Istanbul .....
to the west as Whirling Dervishes, the Mevlevi Order was
founded by Mevlana Rumi in the 13th century. The Order
wrote of tolerance, forgiveness, and enlightenment. They
survive today as a cultural brotherhood. They are not
theatrical spectacles but sacred rituals.
The ritual of
the Mevlevi sect, known as the sema, is a serious
religious ritual performed by Muslim priests in a prayer
trance to Allah.
Mevlevi believed that during the sema the
soul was released from earthly ties, and able to freely
and jubilantly commune with the divine. Dervish literally
means "doorway" and is thought to be an entrance
from this material world to the spiritual, heavenly world.
The Whirling Dervishes played an important part in the
evolution of Ottoman high culture.
From the fourteenth to the twentieth century, their impact
on classical poetry, calligraphy and visual arts was
and his followers integrated music into
their rituals as an article of faith. Rumi emphasized that
music uplifts our spirit to realms above
and we hear the
tunes of the Gates of Paradise.
