Animal Kingdom 22: Eagle: Vision


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 eagle.

Eagle: Vision

Eagle, my eagle,
Your high vision wants to soar above
Yet you want to enjoy and love
The pleasure-life of ignorance below.
Heaven’s height and Earth’s pleasure
Go not together, never!
Be wise, be not stupidly clever.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
