Animal Kingdom 30 – Lion: Sovereignty


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 lion.

Lion: Sovereignty

Lion, my lion,
To your stupendous sovereignty
Impotent lives quickly surrender.
Your sovereignty
Has not destroyed your sense of necessity.
You do not roam
Beyond necessity’s door.
Yours is the golden shore.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
