Animal Kingdom 38 – Pig: Satisfaction


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 pig.

Pig: Satisfaction

Pig, my pig,
Today you derive satisfaction
From ignorance-night.
Tomorrow you shall derive satisfaction
From perfection,
Your friend, your only friend.
Your embrace of perfection
With your transformation-body
Is your birthright..

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
