Publisher’s Description: 

Tagore is unequivocable in his faith. He appreciates the intellectual triumphs of science, but he writes as a poet and philosopher. Man must never lose, in his material quests, his longing the touch of the Divine. Today, as he says, all barriers are down, the "God of humanity has arrived at the gates of the ruined temple of the tribe." Tagore achieved fame as a novelist, playwright, poet, painter, lecturer, politician and composer. In 1913, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature, the first non-European to achieve such honor. 

"This is a book for everyone: a book whose human interest and pervading charm assure it a wide appeal and lasting value. It is not a philosophical work, as its author repeatedly warns us; in fact, its one semi-philosophical chapter (the first) may well be omitted. Its value is religious and poetical; like the essays of Emerson, it is primarily a document of the spiritual life." -Journal of Religion
