Animal Kingdom 8 – Camel: Forbearance


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 camel.

Camel: Forbearance

Camel, my camel,
Your forbearance-height
Is God’s Revelation-Light.
Inside the vast expanse
of futility’s desert-hush,
You want to found
Divinity’s Triumph-Right.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
