The Story of the Phoenix

The story of the miraculous firebird has been told in various forms for thousand of years throughout the world. Ancient civilizations from Egypt across China supply evidence of the antiquity and potency of this perennial symbol of resurrections, renewal and the indestructibility of life. This marvelous creature, so the various stories say, lived alone in an earthly paradise feeding upon the light of stars. At the end of a thousand years, knowing that death was approaching,he descended into the outer world and flew to the land of Phoenicia. There on the tallest tree he built his nest of spices. At dawn, lifting his voice, he sang the hymn so ravishingly beautiful that the rising sun reined in his horses to listen. In that instant the universe stood still and sparks from the flaming halo of the sun set fire to the aromatic phoenix nest. Thus the Phoenix was consumed in the flames, but instantly new phoenix rose from the ashes. Soon the infant bird grew strong and lifted up its nest, then flew to Aeliopolis-The City of the Sun. There he placed the nest on the altar of the temple. Thousand of birds had followed him together in friendship. The hawk with the sparrow, the eagle with the dove. As soon as the mighty phoenix lay his nest upon the altar, he soared aloft once more and winged his watt towards the distant paradise followed by a multitude of birds,all singing in harmony.
