Seb-i Arus

Peace, one and all…

This Saturday (17th December) is Seb-i Arus, the festival celebrating Mevlana Jalaluddin Rumi’s Urs or ‘wedding feast’ – the night he returned to the Divine Beloved.  In many ways, it is the most important time in the Mevlevi calendar, and is marked by music, poetry, zikr and sema, the whirling ceremony.

With this in mind, during the next few days I’ll be posting a number of my favourite poems from Mevlana’s Masnavi, and some of his lyric poems too (ghazals).

Ma’as salama,
Abdur Rahman
