Animal Kingdom 41 – Scorpion: Ignorance-Force


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 scorpion.

Scorpion: Ignorance-Force

Scorpion, my scorpion,
Your ignorance-force
Is conquered
By the human man’s medicine-force,
And the divine man’s forgiveness-force.
Since you are conquered
By two mighty forces,
Stop your eyeless course.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
