I was saying yesterday that I will reblog some wonderful pieces of art. The truth is I have decided to reblog not only these, but some wonderful, inspiring, informative, spiritual posts as well, from sites I myself have been really enjoying reading.🌞
Today I have the “Walking in the Mountains” blog to introduce you. I selected a post about the Sufi whirling experience, because it reminded me of both the magic and admiration 😵 I experienced as a spectator some years ago in Instabul. I would like to have jhanajian’s luck ☺ to be one of the whirling people, though!
Thank you, jhanajian, for reminding me! ❤Thank you for the ecstatic photo, too!
I was introduced to Sufi whirling several years ago when I visited the Osho International Meditation Resort in Pune, India. It’s an experience I will never forget. I’m not a “regular” type person as far as routine goes. But I fell so utterly in love with Sufi whirling that I became a “regular” for the three months I was there. Every day, when that ecstatic music begin to drift through the resort, I dropped whatever I was doing, and hurried to Buddha Hall (pictured below) for the sufi whirling.
I was reluctant at first. That marble floor looked very hard, and I knew I would get dizzy and fall. But the music was so captivating, so beckoning, my resistance soon wore down, and my love affair with Sufi whirling began.
