Satya posted a topic in General DiscussionHey, my friend posted this Chechen Zikr practice online, and, personally, it really resonates with me. Just thought I'd share. http://www.snotr.com/video/10864/Chaotically_hypnotizing_Sufi_dance_Zikr_in_Chechnya So deep, tribal, primordial. It sounds and looks amazing. My impression of Dhikr was just of individuals Whirling, etc, with chants maybe at the same time, but, this looks completely different. Any practising Sufis or Muslims here who can explain what this practice consists of? The chanting, movement, stomping, jumping, spinning, group aspect of it, all looks amazing. There must be loads of energy flying around. Isn't Vajrasattva from a Sufi or Muslim background? I'd like to know more.
Here is a cool documentary by Arnaud Desjardin about the Sufi of Afghanistan. Although it is not in english, it is still cool to see- [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cox8fMHJQtU[/media ] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7r2YE5xudhc[/media ] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9Hf1Wx-YMM[/media ]
