Animal Kingdom 42 – Shark: Meanness


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 shark.

Shark: Meanness

Shark, my shark,
I am so proud of you.
Your meanness-consciousness
Is totally gone.
You swim in the sea of light
and eternal day.
I assure you, you shall not
Be asked to swim again
In the sea of water, mud and clay.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
