May we follow the traditions passed on to us by our Prophets and Pirs for a better understanding of the real purpose of religion! Mevlana Cellaleddin RUMI invites us to do so, up to the point where "the world will run after us". His inspired work and his inspiring writings are the basis of the Mevlevi Order which was founded in the 14th century. This is the website of the Swiss Branch of the Mevlevi Order. The main language here is German, however we offer on it also some space for our brothers and sisters in regions of other languages. This part of our Website – presently under construction – offers information in English. May our doing be of service to all human beings striving for the real purpose of their existence! May we be allowed to do this in the light and under the protection of our Pir Hazreti Mevlana! May Allah the Merciful, the Compassionate protect us!
