Sufi Dance, Shukhrat Abdumalikov (Uzbekistan) – Exquisite Art
Sufi Dancing or Dervish Dance is a beautiful Spiritual Practice, a meditation, a mystical journey of spiritual ascent through the mind to God’s Love. It originated amongst Sufis (an esoteric dimension of Islam), a dance done as a ritual and meditation.
In the ritual dance where consciousness penetrates the body and the mind, the lover joins with the beloved; the dance becomes the dance of Divine Love. With this ecstatic dance, the Sufi Dancer enters the trance, forgetting himself and becoming united with the Divine Lover. Their dance becomes ecstasy. The Sufi unites with the beloved, becoming the instrument for the admiration of creation. Their heart is filled with passion. Love is the only way to experience the beauty of the world indeed.
