Description

Visit the beautiful traditional Dervishes ceremony in Cappadocia. This show represents the mystical journey of a man’s live and the spiritual journey of the search for love and maturity. It’s an incredible experience and a show that will amaze with every part.

The Semâ is consisted of several parts, with different meanings

A- It starts with a eulogy to the Prophet, who represents love, an all Prophets before him. To praise them is praising God, who created all of them.

B- This eulogy is followed by a drum sound symbolising the Divine order of the Creator.... 'Kun=Be!'

C- Then follows an instrumental music improvisation ' taksim ' with a read ' ney ', it represents the firts breath which gives life to everthing : The Divine Breath.

D- The fourth part is the dervishes greetings to each other and their thrice repeated circular walk 'Devri Veledi' accompanied by music called 'peshrev', it symbolize the salulation of soul to soul concealed by shapes and bodies.

E- The fifth part is the Semâ (whirling) it consists of four salutes or 'Selam's. At the end of each as in the onset, the dervish testifies by appearance to God's unity.

1- The first salute is man's birth to truth by feeling and mind. It represent his complete conception of the existence of God as Creator and his own state of creature. 2- The second salute expresses the rapture of man witnessing the splendour of creation, in front of God's greatness and omnipotence. 3- The third salute is the dissolution rapture into love and there by the sacrifice of mind to love. It is a complete submission, it is the annihilation of self in the loved One, it is unity. This state of ecstasy is the highest grade defined as 'Fenafillah'. However, the highest rank is the rank reached by the Prophet : He is called God's servant foremost and subsequently his messenger. The aim of Semâ is not unbroken ecstasy and loss of concious thought, but realization of. 4- The fourth salute: Just as the Prophet ascends the 'Throne' and then returns to his task on earth, the whirling dervish, following the termination of his spiritual journey and his ascent, returns to his task, to his state of subservience. (He is a servant of God, of His prophets and all the creation...) Sura Bakara 2, verse 285. At the end of this salute, he demonstrate this again by his appearance, arms placed crsswise representing the of God, consciously and feelingly.

F- The sixth part of the Semâ is a reading of the Quaran, especially of the verse from Sura bakara 2, verse 115. (Onto God belong the East and the West, and wherever you turn, there is GOD's countenance. He is All-Embracing. All-Knowing).

G- The Semâ ceremony ends with a prayer for the peace of the souls of all Prophets and all believers... After the completion of 'Semâ' ritual all the dervishes return silently to their cells meditation (tefekkür)..
