“The universe is a complete unique entity. Everything and everyone is bound together with some invisible strings. Do not break anyone’s heart; do not look down on weaker than you. One’s sorrow at the other side of the world can make the entire world suffer; one’s happiness can make the entire world smile.” ― Shams Tabrizi

Sufi Whirling Dervishes at Mevlevi Sufi Lodge at Galata in Istanbul Practiced by some Sufi (mystical, more esoteric sect) orders, predominantly in Turkey, this worship ceremony focuses on spinning or whirling to music as a form of meditation to abandon one's personal desires and focus on God. It is also seen by some as a symbolic imitation of the solar system.
