Sufi whirling dervishes seek spirituality by abandoning ego, listening to music, focusing on the divine, and spinning in repetitive circles like planets orbiting the sun. It is said that after 36 hours of meditative whirling, the poet Rumi was luminous and radiant, as if reborn in a new consciousness. Originating with Persian mystics, Sufi dervishes whirl in India, too! This mystical, meditative practice inspired chattra Sufi Oval Yoga Bolster.
Rich navy blue embroidery on beige chambray with plush blue velvet accents. Accented with illuminating orange, a color significant in Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh faiths, and festooned with a colorful tassel like those seen on the camels of Rajasthan’s great Thar Desert. 100% cotton cover, liner and firm cotton fill. So lovely your practice will be inspired.
