The author and professor of Persian literature in Paris, Leili Anvar, presented a musical reading, 'The Canticle of the Birds, Tales of Wisdom and Love' based upon the work of Farid Ud-Din Attar. (See below book discussion.) With the participation of Frederic Ferney as her reading partner and accompaniment by 3 musicians on sarangi, double ney, tanbur, and daf, we experienced a riveting and entertaining enactment of some of Attar's parables.

...
Exceptionally knowledgeable in Persian literature, Leili Anvar wove in two stories from Rumi's 'Masnavi': the controversy between Chinese and Byzantines on the art of painting and the snares of Satan. One day soon I hope to see this theater-musical piece in other festivals.

'The Canticle of the Birds' first appeared in the French edition 2 years ago and the ultra-elegant 4000 cloth-bound, slipcased copies sold-out immediately in 6 months. (It's a massive tome, weighing several pounds.) Dr. Leili Anvar, esteemed professor of Persian literature with INALCO in Paris had undertaken the monumental responsibility of rendering the classical Persian text into exquisite French.

'Malak Jan Nemati' by Leili Anvar (English, French, Farsi, German, Italian):
...
Apart from Dr. Leili Anvar's own poetic introduction and as translator of the new French edition of 'The Canticle of the Birds', she is a cherished Rumi scholar and has published two books about the tremendously popular Sufi poet. A woman with the soul of a poetess, she often appears during the Fez Festival onstage to recite and read Persian Sufi texts with graceful intensity, Dr. Anvar has also published a tribute book about the Persian Kurdish mystic saint, Malak Jan Nemati (1906-1993), the sister of Ostad Elahi, the well-known master sacred tanbur musician, spiritual philosopher and jurist. 'Malak Jan Nemati, Life Isn't Short, But Time is Limited' originally appeared in French with Editions Diane de Selliers and is now available in English through Arpeggio Press.
Her research into universal spiritual traditions led her to meet the blind Sheikh Malak Jan Nemati in person before her passing in 1993. Dr. Anvar in an interview in Fez made clear that the Sheikh, affectionately known as 'Saint Jani', had totally 'transformed' her own life.
...
Both Malak Jan Nemati and Ostad Elahi, according to Dr. Anvar, represented 'modern extensions of Persian Sufism'.

Leili Anvar

Ostad Elahi delivered the main thrust of his conception of wisdom in a prayer entitled "The Quintessence of Religions". Leili Anvar chose this angle to shed some light in a concrete and personal way on some of the subtlest aspects of this thought which, while taking root in the mystical tradition, reverses the prevailing trend by replacing reason at its rightful place in the process of spiritual perfection. The question of evil, the meaning of true ethics and true humanness and the importance of faith are among the themes dealt with in this analysis.
Leili Anvar is Lecturer in Persian Literature at the Institut national des langues et civilisations orientales in Paris and a specialist in mystic poetry. This lecture was given on 10 September 2011 as part of a symposium organised by the Fondation Ostad Elahi around the question "What wisdom for our times?".

Leili Anvar Lecturer in Persian Language and Literature, INALCO
Ostad Elahi is one of the great unknown wise men of the 20th century. A great wise man as much for his thought as for the way he led his life,-especially the way he led his life, the way he drew from his own life a thought he then transmitted, a thought of wisdom. The fact that he is not very well known, is proof of his wisdom. For during his lifetime, many wanted to make him known as a musician -he was an immense musician, a master of the Kurdish tanbur- but also as a mystical thinker. Many people came to see him from Iran, where he lived, from Europe or from the USA, urging him to make himself known. Every time he answered: "You may use the teachings I give you but do not refer to me by name. Isn't such self-effacement a sign of great wisdom?
