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!
