Egypt : do the twist and go to heaven

The Sufis of Egypt give free whirling dervishes performance in the heart of old Cairo, in the mausoleum of Al-Ghoury.

“{Sufism is] a science whose objective is the reparation of the heart and turning it away from all else but God.”

FROM WIKIPEDIA:

While all Muslims believe that they are on the pathway to God and will become close to God in Paradise — after death and after the “Final Judgment” — Sufis believe as well that it is possible to become close to God and to experience this closeness while one is alive. [5] The chief aim of all Sufis then is to let go of all notions of duality, including a conception of an individual self, and to realize the Divine unity.

Not surprisingly, BANNED in some muslim countries.
