Animal Kingdom 13 – Crab: Insecurity


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 crab.

Crab: Insecurity

Crab, my crab, your orphan insecurity-sea
Instigates you to fell the human love-tree.
The more your little kingdom
Wants to grasp the vast world,
The farther will you be compelled to stay
From the horizon of service-freedom.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
