Rumi's whirling dervishes are coming to dance in Divine Remembrance | UCLA - Royce Hall, Los Angeles, California

Rumicome, come, whoever you are
ours is not a caravan of despair.
come, come, whoever you are
this caravan has no despair.

even though you have broken your vow
perhaps ten thousand times
yet come again, come again,
whoever you are, come!
wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving, come!

. Rumi .

Rumi's call is timeless and the whirling dervishes still carry the singing the echo of that call which welcomes without discrimination the whole of humanity to Divine Remembrance, to invite God into the inner heart again and again.

Mevlana Jalauddin Rumi, probably the most loved poet of love in the east and west alike is coming here, in Los Angeles! Come next week, Southern Californians have a rare opportunity to enter this circle of love as the Mevlevi Order of America presents the prayer-dance (sema) of Rumi at UCLA’s Royce Hall. The timeless whirling dervishes and musicians are coming all the way from the magnificent land of Turkey, significantly the land where geographically east and west of the world unites.

December 17 is the night of Union | On December 17, 1273, Rumi was called home by his Beloved God and laid to rest beside his father in Yesil Turbe or, “the green Tomb.” A calligraphy near his tomb reads: “After my death, don’t seek my tomb in the earth, for I rest in the hearts of the men of mystical knowledge.” May God bless His lover, the noble soul of Mevlana Rumi and sanctify his secrets.

Dervish Mevlevi Rumi DanceRumi wrote about Truth and Truth is timeless. about his work, sufi master Inayat Khan (1882-1927) commented, "The original words of Rumi are so deep, so perfect, so touching, that when one man repeats them hundreds and thousands of people are moved to tears. They cannot help penetrating the heart. This shows how much Rumi himself was moved to have been able to pour out such living words."

About the people: The whirling prayer-dance will be led by Postneshin Jelaleddin Loras, who comes from Konya where Rumi lived, and who has followed in the footsteps of his visionary father, Hz. Haji Suleyman Hayati Dede, by teaching both men and women the traditional practices of the Mevlevi Sufis. Joining Mevlvei Order of America's musicians are master Turkish musicians Necati Celik (oud and middle eastern lute), Timucin Cevikoglu (vocalist), and Celaleddin Bi├žer (ney).
