Animal Kingdom 7 – Butterfly: Prosperity


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 butterfly

Butterfly: Prosperity

Butterfly, my butterfly,
You are the harbinger
Of man’s prosperity-life.
Your sweet arrival
Devours immediately
Man’s ceaseless strife.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
