Rabindranath Tagore bzw. , war ein bengalischer Dichter, Philosoph, Maler, Komponist, Musiker und Brahmo-Samaj-Anhänger, der 1913 den Nobelpreis für Literatur erhielt und damit der erste asiatische Nobelpreisträger war.

Tagore revolutionierte in einer als „Bengalische Renaissance“ bekannten Zeit die bengalische Literatur mit Werken wie Ghare baire oder Gitanjali und erweiterte die bengalische Kunst mit einer Unzahl von Gedichten, Kurzgeschichten, Briefen, Essays und Bildern. Er war ein engagierter Kultur- und Sozialreformer sowie Universalgelehrter. Die Kunst seiner Heimat modernisierte er, indem er ihre strikte Struktur und klassische Formensprache gezielt angriff. Zwei seiner Lieder sind heute die Nationalhymnen von Bangladesch und Indien: Amar Shonar Bangla und Jana Gana Mana. Tagore wurde als Gurudeb bezeichnet, ein Ehrentitel, der sich auf Guru und Deva bezieht.

„O Great Beyond, O the keen call of thy flute! I forget, I ever forget, that I have no wings to fly, that I am bound in this spot evermore.“

—  Rabindranath Tagore
Context: I am restless. I am athirst for faraway things. My soul goes out in a longing to touch the skirt of the dim distance. O Great Beyond, O the keen call of thy flute! I forget, I ever forget, that I have no wings to fly, that I am bound in this spot evermore. 5

„Open your doors and look abroad.“

—  Rabindranath Tagore
Context: Who are you, reader, reading my poems an hundred years hence? I cannot send you one single flower from this wealth of the spring, one single streak of gold from yonder clouds. Open your doors and look abroad. From your blossoming garden gather fragrant memories of the vanished flowers of an hundred years before. In the joy of your heart may you feel the living joy that sang one spring morning, sending its glad voice across a hundred years. 85

„Thus great suffering brings with it the power of great endurance.“

—  Rabindranath Tagore
Context: When sorrow is deepest... then the surface crust is pierced, and consolation wells up, and all the forces of patience and courage are banded together to do their duty. Thus great suffering brings with it the power of great endurance. So while we are cowards before petty troubles, great sorrows make us brave by rousing our truer manhood.

„In the joy of your heart may you feel the living joy that sang one spring morning, sending its glad voice across a hundred years.“

„Bigotry tries to keep truth safe in its hand
With a grip that kills it.“

—  Rabindranath Tagore
Context: p>Bigotry tries to keep truth safe in its hand With a grip that kills it.Wishing to hearten a timid lamp great night lights all her stars.</p 24

„It is the constant harmony of chance and determination which makes it eternally new and living.“

—  Rabindranath Tagore
Context: Our passions and desires are unruly, but our character subdues these elements into a harmonious whole. Does something similar to this happen in the physical world? Are the elements rebellious, dynamic with individual impulse? And is there a principle in the physical world which dominates them and puts them into an orderly organization? … It is the constant harmony of chance and determination which makes it eternally new and living.

„Compulsion is not indeed the final appeal to man, but joy is. And joy is everywhere“

—  Rabindranath Tagore
Context: Compulsion is not indeed the final appeal to man, but joy is. And joy is everywhere; it is in the earth's green covering of grass; in the blue serenity of the sky; in the reckless exuberance of spring; in the severe abstinence of grey winter; in the living flesh that animates our bodily frame; in the perfect poise of the human figure, noble and upright; in living; in the exercise of all our powers; in the acquisition of knowledge; in fighting evils; in dying for gains we never can share. Joy is there everywhere; it is superfluous, unnecessary; nay, it very often contradicts the most peremptory behests of necessity. It exists to show that the bonds of law can only be explained by love; they are like body and soul. Joy is the realisation of the truth of oneness, the oneness of our soul with the world and of the world-soul with the supreme lover.

„Man is not entirely an animal. He aspires to a spiritual vision, which is the vision of the whole truth. This gives him the highest delight, because it reveals to him the deepest harmony that exists between him and his surroundings.“

—  Rabindranath Tagore
Context: Man is not entirely an animal. He aspires to a spiritual vision, which is the vision of the whole truth. This gives him the highest delight, because it reveals to him the deepest harmony that exists between him and his surroundings. It is our desires that limit the scope of our self-realisation, hinder our extension of consciousness, and give rise to sin, which is the innermost barrier that keeps us apart from our God, setting up disunion and the arrogance of exclusiveness. For sin is not one mere action, but it is an attitude of life which takes for granted that our goal is finite, that our self is the ultimate truth, and that we are not all essentially one but exist each for his own separate individual existence.
