the endless further

And he is God, who is not merely a sum total of facts, but the goal that lies immensely beyond all that is comprised in the past and the present – Rabindranath Tagore

Tagore’s admiration of Mahakavi Kalidasa here:

Tagore looks upon Kalidasa’s Yaksha as a symbol of all loneliness and separation that prevails in this world and the cloud as a global messenger to all yearning souls:

Did every exile sing to the clouds
The same song of yearning?
Did every lover ask a cloud
To carry a tearful message of love?
