The Heart of God: Prayers of Rabindranath Tagore | Book Selection | Available now at WBRi Book Shop

Bengali Magazines & Books | Online Book StoreRabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is considered the most important poet of modern-day India. This inspiring collection of Tagores poetry represents 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. Elizabeth A. Stewart (Santa Cruz, CA USA) writes: "This collection of seventy-seven poems of the Nobel Laureate poet of India is taken from seven sources of his poetry. The editor has skillfully degenderized and introduced contemporary language where he deemed appropriate. The beauty of Tagore's spirit and his eloquence will be augmented for some by the editor's gifts. Long familiar with Tagore's own translations of his poetry, I find in this collection extreme satisfaction in accessing the presence of the poet in images of rare beauty. This book is an important addition to the literature, providing
fresh acquaintance with a master poet.
