I know a little about Sufi Cuisine in Turkey from our travels here and from a wonderful book called Sufi Cuisine by Nevin Halici. (She is quite faousin Turkey for hercookery books.) There is no one "true coin" of Sufism, and no one Sufi cuisine. However, millions of people throughout the world have found in the traditions of Sufism a path for the fulfillment of their life?s purpose, opening their hearts in praise and remembrance of God. And when they're not fasting, these people often like to break bread together, and share tea and coffee - Turkish, Persian, Indonesian, Chinese, Moroccan, Indian, Albanian, English or American-style! Some Sufi Turkish dishes are: Tutmaj (Meat Broth With Noodles) Zalubiyyah (Fritters in Syrup) Tharid (Lamb & Chickpea Stew) Manti (Turkish Dumplings)-these are wonderful! Irmik Helvasi or Halvah Sooji (Semolina Halvah) Sanbusa (Turnovers) I do cook Turkish Cuisine from time to time and it a very flavourful cuisine-far more than their neighbour Greece, but some similarities just much more spice. Many modern Turkish/Islamic recipes use tomatoes, potatoes, and corn. These items were NOT part of medieval Islamic Cuisine. These items came from the Americas. It will be interesting to read what Naushaba tells of Sufism culinary ways in India/Pakistan. It is a facinating culture. To all those who read and cook from this book, we say, "Ask (Ashk) olsun!" which is Turkish for, "May it become love!" Sufism is said to be a mystic tradition within Islam that encompasses a diverse range of beliefs and practices dedicated to Divine love and the cultivation of the elements of the Divine within the individual human being. Practitioners of this tradition are known as "Sufis" generally, though some senior members of the tradition reserve this term for those who have attained the goals of the tradition. Others refer to it as the Sufi Way. For much greater information this site is quite amazing: http://www.allaahuakbar.net/sufism/index.htm Shanti/Mary-Anne

Also, we saw ceremonies of the Whirling Devishes in Turkyei. The Mevlevi, or "The Whirling Dervishes", believe in performing their dhikr in the form of a "dance" and music ceremony called the sema. The Sema represents a mystical journey of man's spiritual ascent through mind and love to "Perfect." Turning towards the truth, the follower grows through love, deserts his ego, finds the truth and arrives at the "Perfect." He then returns from this spiritual journey as a man who has reached maturity and a greater perfection, so as to love and to be of service to the whole of creation. The order is still active in Turkey, currently led by the 20th great-grandson (22nd generation descendant) of Rumî, Faruk Hemdem Çelebi Shanti/Mary-Anne
