HODJAPASHA CULTURE CENTER

Sufi Music Concert & Whirling Dervish Ceremony

...... Sufi Music Concert & Whirling Dervish Ceremony in Istanbul .....

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.

The Life and Spiritual Milieu of Mevlâna Jalâluddîn Rumi

In the last decades of the Twentieth Century the spiritual influence of Mevlâna Jalâluddîn Rumi is being strongly felt by people of diverse beliefs throughout the Western world.

He is being recognized here in the West, as he has been for seven centuries in the Middle East and Western Asia, as one of the greatest literary and spiritual figures of all time. Different qualities of Rumi have been brought forth by a variety of new translations that have appeared during the nineteen-eighties.

He has been presented as both refined and sensual, sober and ecstatic, deeply serious and extremely funny, rarefied and accessible. It is a sign of his profound universality that he has been so many things to so many people.

Interested in learning more about Rumi ? What a better way to learn about Sufism than by actually seeing a Whirling Dervish ceremony ! Every Monday night a Whirling Dervish ceremony at a little Monastery located in Istanbul-Fatih, (near the VEFA football stadium) gives the intrigued visitor an once in a life time opportunity to see an unique religious ritual.

It must be stressed that this is not a tourist attraction or theatrical dance performance, but rather a religious ceremony between believers and  their selective guests.
Sufi music is considered to be unique because of its combination of synchronized hums with prayers--helping the Whirling Dervishes to achieve pure religious ecstasy.
