POEMS: “Gitanjali 35” By Rabindranath Tagore

712pJ1-SksL._SL1280_

Gitanjali 35

 

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;

   Where knowledge is free;

   Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;

   Where words come out from the depth of truth;

   Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;

   Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;

   Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action

   Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

By Rabindranath Tagore

    Rabindra Nath Tagore was among the fore-runners of Cosmos Mystics. A consciousness we are just beginning to appreciate. Into that state of consciousness may all awake. Thanks for sharing
