Close your eyes and prepare your mind and soul for a mystical journey, an encounter with God Himself
I was wandering the streets of Istanbul when I first came across the dervish dance. I paused for a moment caught by its magic touch, watching with surprise the men whirling continuously in their long white robes. I had no idea what that might be but I was eager to find out.
In the modern world Rumi is known as the “finest poet of all times”, his positive thoughts inspiring million people every day but not many known how it all started.
Born as a Sufi (the mystic branch of Islam concerned with development of the inner self) he seek spirituality from a young age. It is believed that Rumi would turn round and round while reciting his poems and it was this dance which formed the basis for the Whirling dervishes after his death.
Dervish means doorway, and the dance is believed to be a mystical portal between the earthly and cosmic worlds.

Give up on human desires and ego and you will reach perfection
