If with wine you are drunk be happy,
If seated with a moon-faced (beauty), be happy,
Since the end purpose of the universe is nothing-ness;
Hence picture your nothing-ness, then while you are, be happy!

By Omar Khayyam

 Inter-Persian Mystical/Devotional Classical Dances

Dispersing the infinite Blessings and Cosmic Energy to all the sentient beings and non-sentient materials of the world      
                          
Hafiz
 Card up-loaded by unc.edu

Persian mystical dances are traditionally danced to their Sufi Mystic's poems. The poem describes their personal experiences with the Divine/Divine Energy.  Most famous one of the Mystics to the West are Rumi, Hafiz, Sadi and Omar Khayam.  However, there are so many other sublime Mystics about whom Persia has been celebrating throughout centuries.

Iran, Afghanistan, Tajikistan and all other nations are merely current political borders. They are all different types of Aryan and non-Aryan Brothers and Sisters on the earth who has the same humanity ideals. In the same manner, Persian mystical culture/realm lives deep, noble and expansive in the entire Cosmos beyond of any physical and non-physical borders.  It is beyond Space, Time and Matters. It is Inter-Cosmic and transcends different dimensions and planes.   Thus, this "Spiritual Art of Healing" or the way to channel "Salaam"--the non subjective sublime Peace, Love and Bliss does not only belong to certain groups of people.  We say,"Good things belong to all and every beings of the Universe."

Saqi/Saghi, the cup bearer holds the clear wine of Love, Peace and Bliss i.e. total liberation from all the earthly limitations. Saqi, s/he is a messenger/ the medium of this earthly realm and the heavenly realm. 

A good dancer will mimic only a physical beauty with the attire of Saqi/Saghi but when the greater ones dance s/he channels the sublime energy of the clear wine to the audience. This is the ultimate goal of all the Persian mystical dancers.  The heavenly energy is what liberates and delivers humanity out of the limitations and dillusions of this world. As these days are called End Days, Kali Yuga or Jahiliyaat(Age of Ignorance), we need occasional HEALING.

Saqi/Saghi carries the boost of ecstasy which overrides and anihilates any hardships/dillusions of the earth.

These cards were given to Emiko by Dr. Mahera Harouny Rashidi in 1984,( the card on the left and the card on above) that was the time when Emiko started a journey into Persian Spiritual dances, that was 6 years after Emiko started to search for Persian Dances.
