Animal Kingdom 37 – Peacock: Victory

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 peacock.

Peacock: Victory

Peacock, my peacock,
I asked my God
When He will grant me victory.
Smilingly He said:
“Son, not until you stop climbing
The ignorance-tree.”

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
