The legendary Sufi poet Farid al-Din Attar is one of the most ancient poets of Persia. His poetry inspired numerous mystic poets including Rumi. In "The Conference of the Birds," (Mantiq u-Tayr), Attar tell us the story of a group of birds who desire to know the king of all birds, the great Simorgh, the mysterious bird in Persian mythology. Their quest takes them through seven valleys as they experience longing, suffering, and gradual awareness of the Divine Mystery, God's presence within man.
