Vermilion, sometimes spelled vermillion, when found naturally-occurring, is an opaque orangish red pigment, used since antiquity, originally derived from the powdered mineral cinnabar.

There is evidence of the use of cinnabar pigment in India and China since prehistory. It was known to the Romans as minium and was their most valuable pigment, being used to color the faces of triumphant generals in imitation of the vermilion visage of the image of Jupiter Capitolinus in the Temple on the Capitoline Hill where the triumphant processions would conclude.

The Hindus among the Bengalis celebrate the of the multiday autumnal festivities associated with the worship of the Goddess Durga with many colorful rituals, one of which includes the soft smearing of vermilion powder by women on the each others' faces.

Los derviches, una cultura milenaria originada en Persia y donde su doctrina basada en el respeto y la tolerancia les permite mediante un trance controlado estar en paz. Desde Turquía realizan esta danza o proceso de comunión derviche.
La palabra derviche significa “camino al portal”. Es un camino sembrado de una alegría casi onírica, con mucha simbología cultural y que les permite lograr una concentración y conexión con Dios, aún estando en movimiento.
El paso que realizan con sus pies para su giro de 360 grados, es de solo dos movimientos. Lo acompañan con una mano hacia el cielo y otra hacia la tierra y se mantienen erguidos con una leve inclinación hacia el corazón.
Pueden estar girando hasta 3 horas con 30 giros por minuto. Lógicamente los caminos para trascender, ser felíz y elevarse entrando en armonía son muchos; pero para éste justamente hay que estar muy entrenados y bajo la supervisión de maestros.

The dervishes, an ancient culture that originated in Persia, where his doctrine based on respect and tolerance allowed by a controlled trance be at peace. From Turkey perform this dance dervish process of communion.
The word dervish means "road to the site." It is a path strewn with a joy almost dreamlike, with lots of cultural symbols and allowing them to focus and achieve a connection with God, even while in motion.
The way they do with their feet for 360 degree turn, is only two movements. He is accompanied with a hand toward heaven and one to the ground and held upright with a slight inclination toward the heart.
They may be turning up to 3 hours with 30 turns per minute. Obviously the roads to transcend and rise to be happy going into harmony are many, but it just must be well trained and supervised by teachers.
