The Heart of God: Prayers of Rabindranath Tagore

The Heart of God: Prayers of Rabindranath Tagore Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Awarded the Noble Prize for Literature in 1913, Rabindranath Tagore (1861— 1941) is considered the most important poet of modern-day India. He was also a distinguished author, educator, social reformer, and philosopher. Today, Tagore along with Mahatma Gandhi are prized as the foremost intellectual and spiritual advocates of India's liberation from imperial rule.

This inspiring collection of Tagore's poetry represent his "simple prayers of common life." Each of the seventy-seven prayers is an eloquent affirmation of the divine in the face of both joy and sorrow. Like the Psalms of David, they transcend time and speak directly to the human heart.

The spirit of this collection may be best symbolized by a single sentence by Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, the renowned philosopher and statesman who served as president of India: "Rabindranath Tagore was one of the few representatives of the universal person to whom the future of the world belongs."
