Sufi Muslim dervishes

In this picture taken late Saturday, Nov. 19, 2011, Sufi Muslim dervishes from Turkey whirl in dance as part of a Sema ceremony during the Ruhaniyat Sufi and Mystic Festival in New Delhi, India. The Sema is part of a worship ceremony in which the dervishes' goal is to reach perfection by letting go of one's ego or personal desires while thinking of God while in the process of spinning the body in circles.
