Animal Kingdom 51 – Tortoise: Immortality

tortoise2

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 tortoise.

Tortoise: Immortality

Tortoise, my tortoise,
Your slow, self-controlled
Confidence-life
Challenges ignorance-knife
And sows the seeds of immortality — Your universe-surprising embodied reality.

 

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
