"Who among you will take up the duty of feeding the hungry?" Lord Buddha asked his followers when famine raged at Shravasti.

Ratnâkar, the banker, hung his head and said, "Much more is needed than all my wealth to feed the hungry."

Rabindranath Tagore lived from 1861-1941 and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913. This book was originally published in Bengali, the author himself translated it into English in 1916. The 'poems' in this book are contemplations, philosophical and religious thoughts that will make you reflect on you own life, attitude, thoughts and conceptions. I highly recommend this book!
