Legend of the Simurg


Simurg - a symbol of immortality.

In literature, mythology and philosophy, there is a great variety of interpretations of the “Simurg” image. But in the language of poetry and our company the expression “to see a Simurg” means to fulfill the dream.

One of the most beautiful and close to us legends about Simurg says:

Simurgh, the king of the birds, dwells on the mountain supporting heaven. Once, flying around the vastness of his possessions, he drops an indescribable beauty of a feather, and the local birds, who have been quarreled, having found him, decide to go in search of a wise king and ask him for advice.

As usual, not everyone is eager to make a difficult journey, but still a small but determined detachment sets out on a journey. Birds overcome seven valleys - search, love, knowledge, detachment, unity, wonder and destruction. Many give up, others die during the flight, but thirty birds still reach the Simurg Mountains.

And then the truth is revealed to them: that “Simurg” (no wonder the word “si” is in ancient Persian - thirty, “murgh” is a bird) is themselves, each of them and all of them together.
