You will meet the Sufi community and their monastery, listen to their music, eye-witness the Whirling Dervishes Ceremony. The ceremonies are every Thursday. ( Not Touristic Show )

Known 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 profound. Rumi 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.

Sema Ceremony in our Monastery

The flutists, drummers, chanters, and choir are developed into an ensemble called “Mutrip”. The Mutrip takes its place in the front part of the Sema chamber. Directly across from the entrance to the chamber is the sheepskin (called the post) of the sheik, the spiritual master. The line between the sheepskin and the entrance is called the equatorial line. This is the shortest path to unity, reaching reality. It is never stepped on by anyone but the sheik.
The sheik represents Mevlana. During the ceremony, the sheepskin is the greatest spiritual level. Its red color signifies birth and existence.

Zikr – Meditation

CHINESE LANGUAGE ;

舞者脱去黑衣意味着摆脱凡尘 ,留下的黑带,象征自己的肉体,白褂和白裙代表真主,土黄色的高帽子象征墓碑。土耳其旋转舞不仅仅是舞蹈,更是一种宗教仪式。

苏菲教派认为万物都是旋转的,人从出生至去世,都是一个循环,都是一种旋转,于是,他们通过旋转这种舞蹈形式与宇宙和神达成沟通和接触,这种形式被称为“梅夫拉维祭拜仪式”,或“旋转舞仪式”,是一种优雅的灵魂出窍的舞蹈仪式。

提到旋转舞,就不得不提到土耳其旋转舞的创始人杰拉尔丁·鲁米,鲁米是土耳其最伟大的神秘主义哲学家之一,是梅夫拉维教派重要的先知梅乌拉那(意为“我们的导师”)。据称苦修中的鲁米,当年在土耳其的中部城市科尼亚定居时,因听到铁匠铺的敲击声,而感受到了某种神秘力量,情不自禁地旋转起来没有停歇,感受到了与宇宙与安拉的对话。他去世后,他的儿子把他的信徒们组织成一个教徒会,称为梅夫拉维,或旋转托钵僧。
