The Simorgh is a mythical bird that is ubiquitous in Persian literary culture. In the Sufi poet Farid Ud-Din Atta's celebrated twelfth-century epic poem The Conference of the Birds, the birds of the world convene to decide who will be their new master, possibly the elusive Simorgh. To find his adobe, the thirty birds must pass through seven valleys representing human experience: journey, love, knowledge, detachment, unity, and wonderment. In the end, they realize that Simorgh comprises each of the birds, a metaphor for unity and the possibility of the divine within.
