“The totality of ‘The Conference of the Birds’ is built around a pun. Where the birds who complete the path come to see themselves as a reflection of the divine. Attar already tells us at the beginning about this punchline. That we set on the path having been told the ultimate mystery, that we are reflections of God. Yet when we come to the end of the path, we realize ,with surprise, that we are in fact the reflections of God.” – Dr. Omid Safi
