'Come, come again, whoever you are, come! Heathen, fire worshipper or idolatrous, come! Come even if you broke your penitence a hundred times, ours is the portal of hope, come as you are." Mevlana who is also known as Rumi, was a philosopher and mystic of Islam, but not a Muslim of the orthodox type. His doctrine advocates unlimited tolerance, positive reasoning, goodness, charity and awareness through love. To him and to his disciples all religions are more or less truth. Looking with the same eye on Muslim, Jew and Christian alike, his peaceful and tolerant teaching has appealed to men of all sects and creeds.
Mevlana was born on 30 September 1207 in Balkh in present day Afghanistan. He died on 17 December 1273 in Konya in present day Turkey. He was laid to rest beside his father and over his remains a splendid shrine was erected. The 13th century Mevlana Mausoleum with its mosque, dance hall, dervish living quarters, school and tombs of some leaders of the Mevlevi Order continues to this day to draw pilgrims from all parts of the Muslim and non-Muslim world.
Today man who has powerful desires and self seeker feelings can't take a lesson from the thoughts of Mevlana. Mevlana says the origin of existence will be appeared by the universal love. Sufism is to become a united whole with God. Death is separation of soul from body and meeting with divine body. Your ways will become luminous by the words of Mevlana. Mevlana has regarded love of humanity, he also adviced to be tolerant, merciful, kind and patient.
In addition Mevlana adviced not to be the slaves of harsness and anger. In his couplet 'If you don't love, you'll be dead. When you love, you'll remain alive. According to the brief of Mevlana a man burns twice; at first by mother, at the second by his own body. The true birth is the second one. 'The body of a man as the beehive, The honeycomb and the honey of this hive is love. When youn take love away from this hive it will be an empty hive only.
Today in the ceremonies of Mevlevi people who turn in groups named 'Sema'; explains the love of God. Turning starts slowly continues with a great excitement. Mevlevi dervish who performs the sema wears a private dress named 'Tennure. In ceremonies there is a president of Mevlevi Group named 'Post-Nisin'. Mevlana dervishes turns their right hands to the top and their left hands to the ground. It means that palms are open to the God for the gifts which they come from God spread to the society. The music group is named 'Muhrip' musicians who play nay named 'Neyzen'singers are named' Ayinhan'and 'Naathan'. In the opposite of music group there's the skin of an animal with it's hair. At the end of the skin there's a holly line it's named 'The shortest way'.
The "dance" of the Whirling Dervishes is called "Sema". Sema is a part of the inspiration of Mevlana as well as part of the Turkish custom, history, beliefs and culture. Sema represents a mystical journey of man's spiritual ascent through mind and love to "Perfect." Turning towards the truth, his growth through love, desert his ego, find the truth and arrive to the "Perfect" then he return from this spiritual journey as a man who reached maturity and a greater perfection, so as to love and to be of service to the whole of creation, to all creatures without discrimination of believes, races, es and nations. In reality people all over the world need love. In the couplets Mevlana says that humanity is able to walk in the way of happiness by seeing all of beautiness which God bestows.
Son of Mevlana Sultan Veled, his son and Selahaddin Zerkubi who was trained by Mevlana have establish the Mevlevi Tariqat. After Mevlana had said the couplets Celebi the Husamettn wrote them. Mevlana has been presenting the joy of living by his words for 700 years.
He has been telling to the humanity crucible of morals, virtue, honesty, goodness and helping for years. Life will be more valuable and death has beauty also it means meeting God. According to Mevlana death is a wedding night. He never divide men into groups and he calls out's comrade! we were comrades with love, we come into existence with you. 'Mevlana says if somebody commits a sin he shouldn't loose his hope. The door of wowing will be opened up to the last breath. He also says' All over the world at every place there's only God, everything is a lie in this life.
