The 1911-13-15 trilogy of the Gitanjali (Song Offering, Gitimalya (Song Garland) and Gitali (Song Lyrics) is about God and the human soul, God and nature, nature and the soul, the soul and humanity; they Often run over into one another. Inspiring from intuitive experience, suffused with vision, they appeal irresistibly to the depths of the spirit. Over the sensitive soul, like the wind over the lyre (Beena), they strike at the roots of life, at the vital experiences that sustain it and give grace and truth to life's unquiet dream. (The Poetry of Tagore by Dr. S. B. Mukherji.) Early influences were the reading of the lyrics of devotional/love songs in Praise of Vishnu; the Brahmo services he attended at Santiniketan, the services he conducted there as guru; Baul cult songs and lyrics Sanskrit copies of the Hindu scriptures and myths, Bengali and English literature.
