The Heart of God: Prayers of Rabindranath Tagore, by Herbert F. Vetter, from Tuttle Publishing, ISBN 0804835764. Awarded the Nobel Prize for
Literature in 1913, Rabindranath Tagore (1861-1941) is prized along with Gandhi as a prominent intellectual and spiritual advocate of India's liberation from colonial rule. This inspiring collection of Tagore's poetry represents his "simple prayers of a common life." Each of the 77 prayers is an eloquent affirmation of the divine in the face of both joy and sorrow. Like the Psalms of David, they transcend time and speak directly to the human heart.
