Translation of Mystic Terms in Conference of the Birds by Attar: Sadaf Khosroshahi
Farid ud-Din Attar occupies a prominent place in the roll of distinguished Persian poets. His most famous work on Sufism, written eight centuries ago, is the Mantiq-ut-Tayr, or the ´´Colloquy of the Birds,´´ an allegorical poem in which the gifted mystic describes the quest of the birds (symbolizing Sufi pilgrims) for the Simurg (the Lord of Creation). I should explain that I have omitted a good deal which I thought would not interest a foreign listener or would tend to obscure rather than illuminate the salient points of the discourse. I have also thought fit to give a free rather than literal translation of the selected passages, so that the work may be of interest to the casual listener as well as to the student of spiritual and mystic lore. This is a famous mystic allegory beloved by millions worldwide. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dean Sluyter. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/058981/bk_acx0_058981_sample.mp3.
