From my LP class days, I accommodate comprehend of Tagore. The loud speaker from the local church used to play songs took from this considerable book in the early morning. I used to tell the myth of golden grain of corn. Recently, I was reading Kahlil Gibran and saw that his books are inspired by Tagore. I cat valiumght, enough is enoughhere I am determined to read Gitanjali first, before reading its further inspirations. And the make a motion was beautiful Tagore was born in a very Rich family however he was a child without apologizedom.A prison View neighboring photo er in his own house, The child who is decked with princes robes and who have jewelight-emitting diode chains round his neck loses all pleasure in his play his dress hampers him at every step Gitanjali VIII (VIII). O fool, to feat to carry thyself upon thy own shoulders O beggar, to come to beg at thy own door (IX) Such a childhood Tagore had to live and no wonder, he found his happiness and gods front en d with gently and flowers The set down of thy music illuminates the area. The life breath of thy music runs from gear to sky (III) Pluck this little flower and take it.Delay non I fear lest it droop and drop into the dust. Though its colour be not deep and its smell be faint, use this flower in thy service and pluck it while there is TIME . (VI) Light, oh, where is the light? burn it with the burning fire of desire .. (XXVII). The burning desire in Tagore prayed for strength. The introduction of prayer is hope. Give me the strength lightly to domiciliate my joys and sorrows . to make my discern fruitful in service. never to disown the poor or bend my knees before insolent might.. to raise my mind mellowed above daily trifles.And give me the strength to surrender my strength to thy forget with love. (XXXVI) That I want thee, only thee let my he wile repeat without end. ( xxxviii ) When desire blinds the mind with delusion and dust, O thou holy one, thou wakeful, come with thy light and thy thunder . (XXXIX) Life of my life, I shall ever try to keep my body pure, clear-sighted that thy living touch is upon my limbs. thou art that truth which has kindled the light of reason in my mind. fetch all evils a carriage from my heart and keep my love in FLOWER, knowing that thou hast thy seat in the inmost shrine of my heart.And it shall be my movement to reveal thee in my actions knowing it is thy power gives me strength to act . ( IV ). Has not the WORD come to you that the flower is reigning in splendor among thorns? Wake, oh, awaken Let not the time pass in mineral vein At the end of the stony path, in the country of virgin SOLITUDE, my hotshot is sitting all alone. Deceive him not. Wake, oh, awaken (LV) The condition of the poor villagers who run in his farm land evoked Sympathy in him, at the same time he envisioned an India where the poor is empowered with light of knowledge. 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 the talking to come out from the depth of truth Where tireless striving stretches its arm 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 nirvana of freedom, my father, let my country awake . The theology concept of Tagore is the basis of his philosophy. God in our self and our self in God. Our life is only a passage a ride journey with God. Throughout the songs the author is salute and the presence of God too. For Tagore, his existence and strength is closely related to the presence of god. The last judgement toWaiting Virgins with lamps to Maya to Vishnu with Sword Tagore do not counter some(prenominal) existing religious believes but find correct meaning for it and free the God from the WALLS of temples and churc hes. He it is, the innermost one, who awakens my being with his deep hidden touches (LXXII) He visualized God as a loving father, When I pay back to you coloured toys my child, why there is such a play of act upon on clouds, on water, and why flowers are painted in tints (LXII), The rest that flits on babys eyes does anybody know from where it comes? (LXI) Thy eyes image down on my eyes, and my heart has touched thy feet . ( LIX ), on the seashore of dateless worlds is the great meeting children ( LX ) The mystery of death always preoccupied Tagore. When he was young, his brothers wife who was his first inspiration to chicken feed writing is dead. His mother, his lonely symbol of love and freedom too odd him in his childhood. This forced Tagore to find the truth that Life and Death as twin brothers . He absorbed the pain in his life, shall I bear in my heart this honour of he burden of pain, this gift of thine (LII) It quivers standardized the one last response of life in extacy of PAIN at the final stroke of DEATH . ( LIII ) The reason the Mahabhagawata was written, why not to worry to die, Tagore visualize death as only a win over of foam. I dive into the depth of the ocean of foams, hoping to gain the perfect cliff of formless. No more sailing from harbour to harbour with this my weather-beaten boat. I am eager to die into the deathless (C) Tagore is said to be taken inspiration from Kabir Das in his poems.I can hold back the life of Jesus been there with him as well as the manner from psalms . A bit of Shakespeare is visible (to my limited knowledge of Shakespeare) as well. Great works like THE PROPHET , KAHLIL GIBRAN is highly inspired by GEETANJALI. And I can undoubtedly say that this is the best book which modify my heart, mind and soul with thoughts and the presence of God. A MUST NOT put down BOOK . Thy love which is greater than theirs, and thou keepest me free (XXXII). The choice is ours.
