Concept of Pain from Attar's Viewpoint

On the contrary, he considers painlessness as the cause of the egoism, ignorance and unawareness. This article is a glance at designing the subject of pain in the Attar’s works and a movement or circulation in the deliberative hints by this great gnostic regarding pain and its significance, kinds of pain, pain healing factors, benefits and effects of pain, outcomes of painlessness, and that the human beings must have pain and grief inside so that they could be guided toward the final destination. It is hoped that following Attar’s high spiritual thoughts could cure the pain of the contemporary people who are painless and could open the door of rescue and salvation for human being.
