Animal Kingdom 34 – Mouse: Bearer

mouse
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 mouse.

Mouse: Bearer

Mouse, my mouse,
You are the bearer of Ganapati,
The giver of realisation-plenitude.
Earth-consciousness knows
This truth sublime.
Therefore
To you, to you alone,
Earth-life is all gratitude.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
