Animal Kingdom 20 – Dove: Peace


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 dove; the picture shows Sri Chinmoy wigth a dove.

Dove: Peace

Dove, my dove,
You sing the song of peace.
The aspiring human beings
Are all on their knees
Before God
To have your eternal treasure.
Without you, life is nothing but
A destructive pressure.
With you, life is fulfilled satisfaction
In measureless measure.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
