Photographer's Note

"Nar'ın dar'ım olsun,
beni yersiz koyma,
ışığım olsun
zifiri karanlıkta dahi seni bulmaya"

Let us hear Mevlana Celaleddin-i Rumi's views on music and whirling from his own blessed mouth:

Wise men have said: "We have taken these beautiful sounds and melodies from the whirling of the heavens. These pleasant sounds that people produce with musical instruments or their voices are taken from the rotation of the heavens. We all were components of Adam. We have heard those melodies while we were in Heaven, Although entering this cage of the body made of mud and water and dressing in clay may have caused doubts in our spirits and misled us, we nevertheless still remember some of those melodies. It is for this reason that music and whirling is nourishment for lovers of God. In whirling, there is peace of heart, a connection to God and hope of finding the Beloved. When we listen to those beautiful sounds, the imagi­nation in our hearts strengthens; those imaginations even take on forms from breath.
