Animal Kingdom 23 – Elephant: Strength

elephant-sri-chinmoy

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 elephant.

Elephant: Strength

Elephant, my elephant,
You are strength,
Reality’s strength.
Your solid strength
And conscious willingness
Can and shall lead the world
To Infinity’s endless length.

Sri Chinmoy, Animal Kingdom, Agni Press, 1973
