Mevlana’s Urs – Islamic calendar

Mevlana RumiToday is the Islamic lunar calendar anniversary of Mevlana Rumi’s Urs (5th Jumada al-Akhir). As people around the world remember Mevlana’s passing with zhikr and whirling, we are pleased to share this beautiful video.

Shaikh Kabir Helminski speaks about movement as worship of the One, and why dervishes whirl, exploring the physical dimensions of remembrance and how ceremony can facilitate coherence at the individual and community level.
