Ceremonies Commemorating Rumi Set To Start In Central Turkey

Dozens of whirling dervishes are ready to pay tribute to Mevlana Jalaluddin al Rumi – 13th century mystic, poet, and philosopher.

Authorities in central Turkey have completed preparations to mark the 748th anniversary of the passing of Mevlana Jalaluddin al-Rumi – known in the West as Rumi – a 13th-century mystic, poet, and philosopher whose influence carries down to our day.
Backed by the Culture and Tourism Ministry, 10 days of commemoration ceremonies will be held in the city of Konya, where Rumi is buried, with the participation of scores of local and foreign guests.
The passing of Rumi on Dec. 17, 1273, is known as Seb-i Arus – or the wedding night, a reference to Rumi's reunion with God.
A great variety of events will be held during the ceremonies, including symposiums, exhibits, and workshops, as well as the famous ritual of the whirling dervishes.
Fahri Ozcakil, head of the Islamic Sufism music association in Konya, said the performers have been holding Sema programs every weekend this year.
"We have a group of 49 artists, including the guest performers," he said, adding that the group recently stepped up its rehearsals and is now ready for the ceremonies.
