Mohini Chatterjee

Rating: 3.2
I ASKED if I should pray.
But the Brahmin said,
'pray for nothing, say
Every night in bed,
'I have been a king,
I have been a slave,
Nor is there anything.
Fool, rascal, knave,
That I have not been,
And yet upon my breast
A myriad heads have lain.'''

Yeats met Mr. Mohini Mohun Chatterjee, a irepresentative of the Theosophical Society in 1885. One of the paths Yeats travelled on was revealed to him by Mohini Chatterjee. Yeats was attracted to the ageless perceptions of human existence enshrined in the Upanishads, the Gita and in the works of Jagadguru Aadi Shankara. This poem is written in this early life of the poet.
