Animal Kingdom 1 – Ant: Glory

ant2Sri Chinmoy wrote a fascinating little compendium on the spiritual meaning of animals which was published by Agni Press in 1973. Today’s poem features the ant.

Ant: Glory

Ant, my ant,
In you my heart beholds
The glory of the Supreme.
Tiniest in size, you house the dream
Of the Omnipotent.
To me you are extremely important,
Because you represent
One extremity of God,
His message of smallness;
In another word, His greatness.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
