Conference of the Birds metaphorically maps out the journey of the human ego and the quest for truth.  In this classic tale, the birds of the world take flight on a pilgrimage to find their celebrated king, but the dangers and hardships encountered along the way cause many in the flock to abandon their search. In the end the small number of birds that survive uncover a profound secret. 
 

"Come on, birds, put on the cloak of nothingness, drink from the cup of annihilation!  Let's go.  The journey is many years ahead."
