    Presumably there was a dervish who was on a lower level than two other people - perhaps on a hillside, or in a house. The dervish was snoring, his sleep perhaps indicating that he was easy in his mind, relaxed, untroubled by unpleasant thoughts. The other two were not so relaxed.

    I thought dervishes whirled, not snored.
