Is the modern Sema Only a commercial and touristic show?
Is the modern Sema Only a commercial and touristic show? The Mevlevi sect, Rumi's modern day following, as continued to draw on and develop inspired religious beliefs, literature, dance and music since 13th century weaving in to their lifestyles this once, original way of seeing the world. As the modern tradition progressed, it has weakened primarily due to the lack of resources and community, which in the past were at the foundation, provided by Mevlevihanes or dervish lodges. These Mevlevihanes do privately exist, however our version of the full ceremony is preserved by becoming touristic show which is performed in less then ideal conditions sometimes in commercial venues that aren't necessarily ordained spiritual ground.
In our role, our organization assumes account ability and accepts fully the responsibility to the origins and spirit of the ceremony. Our organization's mission is to present Sema with its all elements intact. Poetry, philosophy, dance and music as a means to share cultural richness.
