Animal Kingdom 26 – Goat: Desire

goat

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 goat.

Goat: Desire

Goat, my goat,
No more do you care
For the desire-land.
Therefore Truth-Light is descending into you
And you shall before long become
A member divine of the aspiration-band.
And then through you will play
God’s own Hand.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
