Little Of Me

Let only that little be left of me
whereby I may name thee my all.

Let only that little be left of my will
whereby I may feel thee on every side,
and come to thee in everything,
and offer to thee my love every moment.

Let only that little be left of me
whereby I may never hide thee.
Let only that little of my fetters be left
whereby I am bound with thy will,
and thy purpose is carried out in my life---and that is the fetter of thy love.

    Such a beautiful devotional prayer. All is surrender to thee but the desire to be thy servant.

    Love is an illusion binding us by the will of another. More to life than living on the goodwill of others.

    Rabindranath Tagore was a mystic and a freedom fighter as the english people ruled India and mercilessly killed poor Indians. in the midst of cruelty, he found time to write mystical poems of love of God. tony

    A great spiritual poem composed by the master craftsman advocating dissolution of I and me of the self gradually in the omnipotent God, the Parmatman.
