Animal Kingdom 35 – Panther: Destruction

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 panther.

Panther: Destruction

Panther, my panther,
Yesterday you served God
With your destruction-speed.
Indeed, you were unbelievably powerful.
Today you are serving God
With your aspiration-speed.
Indeed, you are divinely soulful.
Tomorrow you shall be serving God
With your realisation-speed.
Indeed, you will be supremely fruitful.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
