Animal Kingdom 29 – Lamb: Helplessness


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 lamb.

Lamb: Helplessness

Lamb, my lamb,
Your white helplessness-day
Compels God-Compassion
In you to stay,
And guide you to
Infinity’s Height,
Eternity’s Light,
Immortality’s Right.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
