Animal Kingdom 32 – Monkey: Restlessness


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 monkey.

Monkey: Restlessness

Monkey, my monkey,
Your restlessness-life
Has won a transformation-face.
What a miracle!
Yesterday you belonged
To God’s unconditional Grace.
Today you belong
To God’s Aspiration-race.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
