Go not to the temple by Rabindranath Tagore

Go not to the temple

by Rabindranath Tagore
 
 
Go not to the temple to put flowers upon the feet of God,
First fill your own house with the Fragrance of love…

Go not to the temple to light candles before the altar of God,
First remove the darkness of sin from your heart…

Go not to the temple to bow down your head in prayer,
First learn to bow in humility before your fellowmen…

Go not to the temple to pray on bended knees,
First bend down to lift someone who is down-trodden. ..

Go not to the temple to ask for forgiveness for your sins,
First forgive from your heart those who have sinned against you.

One response to “Go not to the temple by Rabindranath Tagore

  1. Leave this chanting and singing and telling of beads!

    Whom dost thou worship in this lonely dark
    corner of a temple with doors all shut?

    Open thine eyes and see thy God is not before thee!
