Animal Kingdom 16 – Deer: Speed


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 deer.

Deer: Speed

Deer, my deer,
God’s Compassion
Has the fastest speed.
God is very rich, my deer.
With His Compassion-moon,
The whole world He knows how to feed.
God wants you to be His student-runner
And hoist His Victory’s Banner.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
