What Have You Suffered?
"I'm in flesh and bones
I appeared as a dolphin. ”
The owner of these lines is Yunus Emre. UNESCO declared 2021 the Year of Commemoration of Yunus Emre. Karaman will breathe the spiritual climate of Yunus Emre with various events throughout the year.
Karaman Governorship continues its work. The commission is running breathless. Let me give the good news of some of the events planned in Karaman by saying "Yunus Emre Museum and Yunus Emre library will be opened, Yunus Emre readings will be made, Yunus Emre movies will be shown" .
Since 2021 is Yunus Emre Year, my articles will be about Yunus Emre for a while. Let those who know everything and "what those say to me" should not cast a shadow, stand aside.
"What those who don't know know us,
Greetings to those who know. ”
Let's start by saying "Aleykümselam" .
Turns out what our "Strange Dolphin" has been through. They called it an 'unbeliever'. The takeover is back 'Anatolian Ereni' . Some have crowned it on his head, some labeled it a 'humanist vagrant'.
Everyone Has a Dolphin
Unfortunately, we do not know the location of the real tomb of Yunus Emre, who is among the sultans of the hearts with his over 25 offices today.
While there is no hesitation about the burial places of his contemporaries Hacı Bektaş and Mevlana, can the reason for the uncertainty of the grave of Yunus during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent be that his grave was destroyed after Sheikh al-Islam Abu Saud (he gave fatwa because he was an unbeliever)?
It is a pity that one of the candles of Anatolia, Yunus Emre, cannot be allied even on his tomb, but it is the reality of this country. We had the opportunity to get to know Yunus Emre again, which is important. Let's know and evaluate the value of this.
Let's see the discovery of Yunus Emre's graves in different places as Anatolia's opening up to beautiful people.
Let's prepare the ground for new Yunus Emre to grow from our cities where every Yunus grave is located. Let's not forget that "Authorities and tombs are symbols."
Yunus Emre love blossomed from the 1930s in Turkey. Yunus Emre's poems come back to the agenda, articles on Yunus Emre's mystical side and philosophy begin to be published. This has sociological and cultural reasons.
In this period, Yunus Emre Association is established in Ankara. The president of the association is Halim Bâki Kunter and its general secretary is Ahmet Adnan Saygun.
Yunus Emre Association gives priority to two issues. The first is to prepare a reliable Dolphin Divan by reviewing and comparing old editions and new copies, eliminating poems that do not belong to it.
The second is to repair Yunus' ruined grave and realize a monumental tomb project worthy of his name.
Both goals occur. A large number of Dolphin Boards appear on the market. After a while, a mausoleum is also built.3%
