Whirling Dervishes

Many people have heard of Rumi, or as he is generally known in Turkey, Mevlana, but not many have had the opportunity to experience the Sema ceremony he inspired. The turning is a form of prayer, the purpose of which is to embrace all humankind with affection and love. You are asked not to drink, smoke, or take photographs during the ceremony.
