Contemplative Reading: Gitanjali

The Contemplative Reading Group is reading a new edition of the Gitanjali (“Song Offerings” or “Prayer Offerings of Song”). It is a book of spiritual poems by Rabindranath Tagore, a Bengali poet, who received the Nobel Prize for his work.  The new edition is based on Tagore’s original Bengali and English texts.

The Contemplative Reading Group meets once a week, Fridays at noon in the meetinghouse.  We have read Quaker, Christian, and Buddhist classics using a method similar to Lectio Divina — We read the same short passage several times out of silence and then reflect and share on what arises for us from the text and our own experience.   It’s easy to join us at any time. Please feel free to “drop in” and give it a try!
