Who are Dervishes?
First, let’s learn more who Dervishes are.
Dervishes are Sufi Muslims known for their strict way of living, which involves isolation and staying away from all kinds of worldly pleasure. These elements are needed for them to achieve their ultimate life objective. And by letting go of their pride, they will be able to meet God, they think. So, they will find God.
Dervishes are said to have special powers and can do miracles since they are connected to God, according to legends. So the representative show carries mystical texture and faithful sparkles.
The Show of Submission to God
Firstly, the show begins with a prayer. Then, master Dervish directs other Dervishes to their places on stage. Next, the Circling of Veled begins, and this move is a representation of the resurrection from the grave.
The clothing of the Dervishes contains some symbolism as well:
- Cloak represents the tomb
- Hat represents the gravestone.
As the story develops, the Dervishes eventually shed their cloaks, indicating that they are rescued from the earthly life and became free.
During the show, you’ll feel the atmosphere’s peace all around. You’ll also relax while watching them. Maybe you can also find the god!
