About

The text used in this piece can be found in Indian poet Rabindranath Tagore’s collection of devotional poetry, Gitanjali. This collection was originally published in 1910 in Bengali, and was subsequently published in English in 1912 as part of Song Offerings – an anthology of Tagore’s own English translations of his work.

The profound words of this poem paint an evocative, hopeful picture of an awakened nation, where knowledge, reason, truth, thought and action abound, free from the strains of oppression and inequality. This prayer speaks directly to the challenges we face today, over 100 years later, as we seek peace and enlightenment in our nations.
