Animal Kingdom 3 – Bear: Vengefulness


Sri 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 bear.

Bear: Vengefulness

Bear, my bear,
Your sense of vengefulness
Far surpasses human might;
Yet unconsciously
You cry for the human height.
Nothing satisfies you for long;
Not even satisfaction-day.
Inseparable your proud wisdom
And wild ignorance-clay.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
