منطق الطیر‎‎ Manṭi uṭ ṬayrI read the Wolpe translation arallel with the original and I gotta admit her translation is mind boggling Attar s incisive lesson sin ethics and morality never get old Rumi might be the most To Honor You Call Us (Man of War prominent sufioet but I d like to argue that this book is the godfather of Persian mysticism The remise of Farid ud Din Attar s oems in The Conference of the Birds is simple the birds gather to seek the king of the birds the Simorgh One of the birds the hoopoe tells them that the Simorgh lives far away and that the journ I have been wanting to read The Conference of the Birds for a very long time The Trip the Light Fantastic peacock in me ordered the Rafic Abdulla interpretation lured as I was by the illustrations of Persian miniatures from The British Library this is the only modern illustrated edition and they do not disappoint This is only a 93age book It serves as a delightful amuse bouche but leaves one with a hungry appetite for This can be found in Peter Avery s The Speech of the Birds which the owl in me will be reading next as it is the scholarly translation and will hopefully have clues What I love truly deeply The Sinners Marriage Redemption (Seven Sexy Sins, passionately emphatically love about Farid ad Din Attar s masterpiece is coming across allegories that bring about enlightenment Ah sublime bliss But as always when you deal with metaphor and rhetorical riddles you need to comerepared with a heavily built superstructure of Talk Like TED: The 9 Public Speaking Secrets of the World's Top Minds previously acuired knowledge beforehand to be able to correctly make your own connection The first stage is the Valley of the uest Then Love s wide valley is our second test The third is Insight into MysteryThe fourth Detachment and Serenity The fifth is Unity The sixth is AweA deep Bewilderment unknown beforeThe seventh Poverty and Nothingness And there you are suspendedmotionlessTill you are drawn the impulse is not yours A drop absorbed in seas that have no shores I heard about this book when it was mentioned during a lecture by Wayne Dyer He said that it was a fable about the birds who set forth to meet God but when they got to their destination after a violent journey they found nothing but a mirror reflecting who they had become during the journey The knower and the known became one by virtue of that journey That description intrigued me so I decided to read the book Before I started reading I was expecting the description of the journey to be the main chunk of the book I was wrong and I am glad that I was wrong And the reason for not describing the journey in detail Attar explains in the description of the valley of Bewilderment is that each of the birds had to travel their own journey that is different from the rest I saw Rumi in that explanation who once said Let the beauty we love be what we do There are a hundred ways to kneel and kiss the ground Sure enough I found during my research that Attar was a major inspiration for Rumi Some even claim that Rumi met Attar but it is disputed They might have not methysically but you can see the spiritual union if you read both of them The Conference of the Birds can be looked upon as an epic that accurately describes the Sufi tradition in South Asia The birds disciples need a guide Hoopoe spiritual master if they were to reach Simurgh God by traveling through seven valleys Trials According to the Sufi tradition no one can reach God with out a teacher That teacher holds unuestionable authority and the disciple has to obey everything even if the instruction goes directly against the teachings of the faith The spiritual masters teach that this is the only way to overcome ego or nafs as they call it in Persian Before the journey starts the Hoopoe has to convince the other birds to make the journey So he lets them The Upside of Stress pour out their deepest fears regarding the journey and then answers the inherent uestions in those insecurities through fables The symbolize anotheropular tradition is Sufism that is teaching through fables and stories The same tradition was found in the West an example of whom is Canterbury Tales In fact there were stark similarities as well as differences between The Conference of The Birds and Canterbury Tales which might as well symbolize the similarities and differences between East and the West The epic was a form of instruction in both East and The West but what was instructed is something very interesting to observe in both cases The end of the epic again is something very significant It speaks of the Glory presence of God in each of us Access to thatresence is denied to us because of the false self that we have created that dictates us about who we are and who we are not That false self or ego is the mirror reflection of the customs and traditions of the society That ego has fears and subseuently the Oracional Bilingue pride which is used to cover those fears Most of the fables included in this book are directed towards showing the falsehood of these integralarts of the ego The way to overcome these twin forces is something upon which both the East and the West agrees Love To be Starplex precise from the Eastern side the journey of love towards love with love Love Conuers All as Chaucer said If I reflect upon my life I find that what stops us from setting out on a journey is fear andride in uneual roportions But what annihilates that mixture is the force of love about whom Attar says the impulse in not yours If the impulse is not ours then I would say that the resence of God makes itself felt through that impulse The end seems to signify that we don t reach our Beloved We become that Beloved during our reaching The Conference of the Birds is a Sufi allegorical story written by Attar about multiple birds uest to find GodEach bird represents a certain type of erson with certain "virtues or vices The birds are greedy lazy fearful arrogant and so onAttar s oem is a mirror which "or vices The birds are greedy lazy fearful arrogant and so onAttar s One Dish at a Time poem is a mirror which can use to seearts of ourselves and othersAttar s hope was that his birds uest could serve as a mirror we can use to become self aware Here is Attar s verse at the No Hard Feelings poems conclusion I with my wordsHave shown to sleeping men their souls as birdsAnd if these words canrompt one heart to wakeFrom lifelong stupor for their mystery s sakeI ll know I ll have no doubt that all my The Healthiest Diet on the Planet painAnd grief are over and were not in vain I will have been a lamp a candle s lightThat burns itself and makes the whole world brightAttar soem is a mirror for cultivating self awarenessAttar s Predator 2 poem begins with the birds electing the Hoopoe as their guide As soon as the journey begins so do the birds excuses doubts and uestions The Hoopoe answers each bird with 3 4 allegorical stories Thisattern of uestion and multiple stories as an answer repeats and makes up most of the

"CONFERENCE OF THE BIRDS FOR EXAMPLE "
of the Birds For example bird fears death So the Hoopoe tells a story about Socrates When Socrates lay close to death a youth Who was his student in the search for Truth Said Master when we ve washed the man we knewAnd brought your shroud where should we bury you He said If you can find me when I ve diedThen bury me wherever you decide I ve never found myself I cannot seeHow when I m dead you could discover meThroughout my life not one small Hook particleHad any knowledge of itself at all Sounds like the ever whimsical Socrates to meAttar mimics and I think surpasses Plato s story about this same moment Crito said how shall we bury you In any way you like said Socrates if you can catch me and I do not escape you And laughing uietly looking at us he said I do not convince Crito that I am this Socrates talking to you here and ordering all I say but he thinks that I am the thing which he will soon be looking at as a corpse and so he asks how he shall bury me Plato s Phaedo at 115c 116aPlatonic echo aside Attar s Conference of Bird s also resembles Dante s Inferno both stories are framed as journeys to God which explore human virtues and vices for listener and or readers benefitLike Dante Attar had a soft spot for the virtuous of other religious traditions As we ve seen for example noble non Muslims such as Socrates are approved of by AttarBut despite this soft spot for specific virtuous Greekhilosophers such as as Socrates Attar condemns Greek Zero Hour (Expeditionary Force Book, philosophy in general How will you know the truths religion speaksWhile your rehilosophizing with the GreeksHow can you be a man of faith while you re still wrapped in their hilosophic loreIf someone traveling on of faith while you re still wrapped in their hilosophic loreIf someone traveling on s Way should say Philosophy he doesn t know loves way Philosophy though snares you with its why sAnd how s and it mostly ensnares the wise Medina s wisdom is enough my friendThrow dirt on Greece and all that Greece might sendAttar sees that love is the true Forever path to wisdom and God and that Greekhilosophy leads us away from loveI have to disagree with AttarGener. Considered by Rumi to be “the master” of Sufi mystic oetry Attar is best known for this epic oem a magnificent allegorical tale about the soul’s search for meaning He recounts the erilous journey of the ,

Ally Greek Demon Divine (Demon Accords philosophers saw love and theroper The Pearl Thief practice of it as the key to self awareness and self improvement Take Plato for example he thought that the sight of beauty uickens love which through the use of reason leads to the truth Philosophy is after all a love of wisdomGenerally speakingroper reason mirrors Healthier Together proper love in the Greekhilosophical tradition one cannot reason well without love or love well without reason reason and love act in harmony when either is done wellBut Attar unlike his Greek The Haunting of Sunshine Girl predecessors sees reason as always in opposition to love As heuts it so elouently My book s all madness Reason won t appearWithin it s Routledge Library Editions pages she s a stranger hereAnd till the soul breathes in this madness sheRemains a stranger to eternityI ve spent too much timehilosophizing with the Greeks to be able to agree with Attar s complete rejection of reasonBut thankfully we don t need to agree with Attar entirely to see how we can use his Crisis in Bethlehem poem as a mirror to ritually channel our awareness for the sake of self improvementWe simply need to be very clear about why Attar distrusts reasonSo what s the reason Attar distrusts reason I think we all can benefit from taking Attar seriously here especially if you re the kind oferson attached to seeing themselves as logical or rational rather than emotional It would be easy boring and lazy to dismiss Attar s distrust of reason as complete nonsense More to the The Return of the Twelves point such a lazy dismissal would make it much harder to enjoy or benefit from Attar s Conference of Bird sWhether or not we agree with Attar s reasons for distrusting reason we need to understand them to understand him or give a real reason why he might be wrongHere s what I think Attar is up toNow I m certain you ve noticed at someoint in your life that you can rarely if ever convince Dizzy Jimmy people to believe something based onure logic reason or empirical claimsThat s because a reliable way Locuras lejos de casa! (Serie Lady Pecas 1) perhaps the only reliable way to change someone s mind is telling them stories that appeal indirectly to themThis is of course exactly what Attar doesAttar soem is a bunch of stories not a bunch of systematic reasons Still there is a recurring attern behind most of Attar s enjoyable stories one which amounts to a kind of reasoned argument when we examine his oem as a wholeIn Attar s stories usually a lover falls in love with someone they are Grammar by Diagram perceived as being unworthy to love a beggar for arince an ascetic for a Murder Maker princess a Sufi for God etcGenerally theattern in Attar s نشانی‌ها poem is that a social inferior falls in love with a social superior This love is usually seen as scandalous and as a rule of thumb the lovers love for the beloved is uestioned and challenged by society Most of Attar s stories end badly for the social inferior Often in deathBut this death is shown as a metaphor for our egos death and changes in our self understanding Death is seen as only a kind of change and change as a kind of deathThis is why Attar s and Plato s Socrates laughs when his followers desire to bury him Socrates won t be around after death Nor will Socrates experience his own death In other words death is not an event we experience in lifeThere s some wisdom in distrusting reason in favor of intuitive loveFor it is only when we let go of who we think we are and what we are attached to thinking we look like to others that we can become aware of who we truly are which is the first step in anyrocess of self improvementThe roblem with Attar as I see it is that I doubt he would be satisfied with this conclusion he would want of us than just cultivating our self awareness for the sake of self and societal improvementAttar would want us to go even further to dissolve our Self and loyalty to others into a mystic rapture of oneness with the world by submitting to a true and un reasoned intuitive and spontaneous love for God the universe and everyone in itHere s why I think Attar would want us to go one step farther As the translators of my the Conference of Birds Dick Davis and Afkham Darbani ut it in their introduction Certain of the beliefs central to Sufism seem to engage Attar s imagination than others Two themes in Good Witch, Bad Witch particular are diffused throughout the wholeoem the necessity for destroying the Self and the importance of The Tokyo Zodiac Murders passionate love Both are mentioned in every conceivable context and not only at the appropriate moments in the narrative The two themes are connected the Self is seen as an entity dependent onride and reputation there can be no Yours, Mine and Ours (Second Chances progress until theilgrim is indifferent to both and the surest way of making him indifferent is the experience of overwhelming loveAttar s stories show again and again and again that through the right kind of love we over come our selfish vanity and find the nature of god the universe and ourselves as interrelated than we imaginedAttar wishes us to see that we are the universe witnessing itself that we are all god and that the right kind of love is indiscriminate universal and impartial to all differences After all if we are everything and all god then Riverview, Gone But Not Forgotten preferring to love someeople or things than others is downright foolish because all we are doing is rejecting ourselves This is why the Conference of the Birds ends the way it doesAt the very end of the story the birds that Boneshaker (BA 43-500, persevered throughout theoem and heard all of the Hoopoes stories find themselves looking into a ond Within it they see God within themselves reflected the very thing they started their journey in search ofAttar s rologue succinctly states what we are to take away from that scene and the Conference of the s CSA Scenarios for the MRCGP, third edition prologue succinctly states what we are to take away from that scene and the Conference of the as a whole The things you seek and know are you and soIt s you a hundred ways you re forced to knowI think this is the reason why Attar distrusts reason in generalReasoning with others always creates conceptual differences between things otherwise we can t speak of one thing being different than another And if we are the universe witnessing itself then reason as well as language merely creates false categories and abstractions enslaving us to concepts blinding us to how interconnected everything and everyone isWhile I think this is all a fine metaphor we benefit from learning I don t think it s literally true and I also think this metaphor creates just as manyroblems as it solvesLet me first explain where I think Attar is right and helpful to us all before I move on to The Ornament (Ornament, places where he createsroblems for us if we value social relationships friendship or familyWe can all agree that I am not the same erson I was when I was 10The only reason I think of there being a continuity between 10 year old me and resent day me is because I automatically use the concept of the Self As I imagine Attar might wisely say I am a fool if I out of loyalty to 10 year old me I refuse to try a new activity because I want to be true to myself For example 10 year old me thought that skateboarding was something dumb unks did because 10 year old me recited the opinions of his Catholic grandma Spongebob Suarepants was also suspect for her and thus for me just in case you were wondering The early 2000s Kids Tv Show Rocket Power was also suspect in my childhood Why It glorified the great satan of skateboardingAnyway years later I only realized how silly my suspicion of Spongebob and skateboarding was as friends of mine told me stories about their love of Spongebob and skateboardingThese friends opened up new and truer ways of seeing the world for meMy reasons to distrust Spongebob and skateboarding were ridiculous but if someone had tried to reason or argue me out of them I likely wouldn t have listened My reasons came from a foolish if understandable loyalty to the opinions of a loved oneAttar is like a good friend excellent at telling us stories which help us get rid of silly ideas we get from ourselves and others about who we really are can be and whether Spongebob is corrupting the youthSometimes reason is just a convenient and socially respected cudgel we or society use on ourselves and others as a means of creating a conformity as meaningless as it is misguided or damaging This is Attar s concern and why he can help usAttar is great at helping us see and imagine who we really are and could become because his stories constantly remind us how fluid who we are really isSo that s what sound about Attar because his stories constantly remind us how fluid who we are really isSo that s what sound about Attar distrust of reason and why he s especially worth a read but here s the rubAttar doesn t distrust reason in specific cases he doubts reason is ever useful Because if we are the universe witnessing itself reason can only ever divide and blind us into artial foolish and selfish loveFrom Attar s way of seeing things my 10 year old Super Minds Level 2 Students Book with DVD-ROM preferential beliefs about skateboarding and Sp. Orld’s birds to the farawayeaks of Mount af in search of the mysterious Simorgh their king Attar’s beguiling anecdotes and humor intermingle the sublime with the mundane the spiritual with the worldly while. Ongebob are as delusional as my Challenged to Win preferential love for close friends and familyAfter all where do we usually get get our reasons from and who do we usually address them to While we can marginally reason on our own werimarily do so because of with and for others we have social relationships withReason is Kids Draw Knights, Kings, Queens, Dragons primarily a social tool like storytelling that we use to renew repair and reform our social relationships and societyThis is why Attar s categorical distrust of reason leads to a categorical distrust all social relationshipsFrom Attar s way of seeing things both reason and social relationships imprison us into aartial limited and distinct sense of self apart from the universe as a whole think of my reliance on my beloved Grandma s reasoning about skateboarding and spongebobIf you re like me you robably don t find this side of Attar helpful and want to inpoint where he went wrong especially because he s so helpful at freeing us from foolishly hating things such as SpongebobPlato can help us answer AttarPlato s answer is one Attar might not agree with but Plato s answer will let us read enjoy and make sense of Attar whether or not we fully agree with Attar s categorical distrust of reasonPlato has Socrates argue that a categorical distrust of reason is as foolish misguided and silly as hating all humanity SOCRATES We must not become haters of reason as The Color of a Leader people become haters of humanity There is no greater evil one can suffer than to hate reasonable discourse A hatred of reason and a hatred of humanity arise in the same wayA hatred of humanity comes when someone without knowledge or skill haslaced great trust in someone else and believes him to be altogether truthful sound and trustworthyThen a short time afterwards they find him to be wicked and unreliable Then this happens in another case When this happens enough especially with those you believed to be close friends then in the end after many such blows Into the Planet people come to hate all humanity and to believe that no one is sound in any way at allSuch a hatred of humanity comes most easily to those that have little experience and skill in social relationships For great experience would lead one to believe what is in fact true that the very good and the very wicked are both uite rare and that mosteople are between these two extremes A Dusk (Rosales Saga, paraphrase of Plato s Phaedo at 89d 90a A complete distrust of reason verging on hatred arises when we have freuently been let down by arguments But this does not mean we should give up on our ability to talk clearly truthfully and honestly to each otherIf we find ourselves constantly let down by others or arguments this means we have something to learn not that we should give up on our ability to learnPlato compared the hatred of reason to the hatred of humanity for a very good reasonFor Plato and much of the rest of Greekhilosophy reason was something you did by speaking with others it was a social act not a George Washingtons Secret Six private mental one Thus to give up on reason did not mean giving up on your own ability to think or speak but giving up on our collective ability to clearly discuss things learn and havelans and relationships with each otherReason and love on this view are mean t to harmonize with each other however exactly that harmony works outI think with Plato that we should not hate everyone else or all reason but take courage and eagerly uestion and wonder in the company of trusted friends and storytellers what led us to mistaken love or reason in the first lace Still whether we refer to see love and reason like Plato or Attar we can benefit from the Conference of the Birds by using it s stories as a mirror for cultivating self awareness His The Caretaker poem is like a journal a way of regularly ritually reviewing the direction of our lifeAttar s stories are enjoyable and useful with or without us fully agreeing with his views on love reason or GodJustlease don t give up on reason or humanity because of a few bad applesPOSTSCRIPT Click here for a rich text version of this review with Clara
