Rabindranath Tagore | Go Not To The Temple | English Inspirational Poetry


This poem is called: GO NOT TO THE TEMPLE
by Rabindranath Tagore Go not to the temple to put flowers on the feet of God,
First fill your own house with the fragrance of love. Go not to the temple to light candles before the altar of God,
First remove the darkness of sin from your own heart. Go not to the temple to bow down your head in prayer,
First learn to bow in humility before your fellow men. Go not to the temple to pray on bended knees,
First bend down to lift someone who is downtrodden. Go not to the temple to ask for forgiveness for your sins,
First forgive from your heart those who have sinned against you.
