... main event of the day.....the Whirling Dervishes! The service we saw is at the monestary is based upon the teachings of a Muslim mystic in the 13th century called Rumi. He believed that a dervish spinning in a circle becomes part of the universal harmony. He believed the purpose of life was to purify oneself to become free of material desires.
