WHIRLING DERVISHES CEREMONY IN THE EVENING AT 18:00
Sufi whirling is a form of Sama or physically active meditation which
originated among Sufis, and which is still practiced by the Sufi Dervishes
of the Mevlevi order. It is a customary dance performed within the Sema,
or worship ceremony, through which dervishes (also called semazens)
aim to reach the source of all perfection, or kamala. This is sought
through abandoning one’s nafs, egos or personal desires, by listening to
the music, focusing on God, and spinning one’s body in repetitive circles,
which has been seen as a symbolic imitation of planets in the Solar
System orbiting the sun. As explained by Sufis. In the symbolism of the
Sema ritual, the semazen’s camel’s hair hat (sikke) represents the
tombstone of the ego; his wide, white skirt represents the ego’s shroud.
By removing his black cloak, he is spiritually reborn to the truth. At the
beginning of the Sema, by holding his
arms crosswise, the semazen appears
to represent the number one, thus
testifying to God’s unity. While whirling, his arms are open: his right
arm is directed to the sky, ready to receive God’s beneficence; his left
hand, upon which his eyes are fastened, is turned toward the earth.
The Semazen conveys God’s spiritual gift to those who are witnessing
the Sema. Revolving from right to left around the heart, The Semazen embraces all humanity with love.
Evening yoga and meditation at hotel.
