(from the film BAB’AZIZ)



POEM OF THE ATOMS, by RUMI 
(at 2:20)

O’ day, arise! 
shine your light , the atoms are dancing

Thanks to him the universe is dancing, 
overcome with ecstasy , free from body and mind

I’ll whisper in your ear where their dance is leading them. 

All the atoms in the air and in the desert are dancing ,
puzzled and drunken to the ray of light,
they seem insane. 

All these atoms are not so different than we are, 
happy or miserable, 
perplexed and bewildered 

We are all beings in the ray of LIGHT from The Beloved, 

Nothing can be said.


(singer Salar Aghili)

minervanin-baykusu:

Filmden küçük bir kare müziklerinin harika olduğunun örneği diyelim.

küçük Ishtar’ın girdiği bir sefa meclisinde, açılır ona güzellik kapısı  baştan başa. Peçesini sıyırır bir güzel kadın ve Esmaül Hüsna’dan virdler okumaya başlar. Rahman, Rahim, Kerim ve Vedûd isimleri zikredilir.

If the baby in the darkness of its mother’s womb were told, outside there is a world of life , with high mountains, great seas, undulating planes, beautiful gardens in blossom, a sky full of stars, and a blazing sun … and you, facing all these marvels, stay enclosed in this darkness. The unborn child, knowing nothing about these marvels, would not believe in any of these. Like us, when we are facing death. That’s why we’re afraid.
