What is Mystical Poetry?

The bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore

Mystical poetry is an expression of longing a separate self entity has towards the formless ultimate being. The Supreme Lord of the universe is the primary object of every mystical poem. It’s about the personal individual becoming universal. It’s about biological life becoming eternal life. Its about the radiant love and grace of that unspeakable one.

The video above, which is of Rabindranath Tagore’s Gitanjali, is one fine example of mystical poetry at its best!


Seeker is a name, I am not my name, I am the nameless because the Dao that can be named is not the eternal Dao.
