Rabindranath Tagore. The Inner World. Some remarks about Poet's religion.

  • Academic Journal
  • International Journal on Humanistic Ideology; 2010, Vol. 3 Issue 2, p67-86, 20p
  • Rabindranath Tagore was essentially a religious thinker and he always upheld the primacy of the soul. In his work My Religion, he observed that "Man's religion is his innermost truth. One's religion is at the source of one's being"1. But he was not religious in the traditional sense and was least concerned with the practices of the communal religion he belonged to (i.e. Hinduism). The idea of a direct, joyful, and totally fearless relationship with God can be found in many of Tagore's religious writings, including the poems of Gitanjali. From India's diverse religious traditions he drew many ideas, both from ancient texts and from popular poetry. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
