Tagore draws on the Upanishads, but is not committed to them. He is cautious about their epistemological tendencies and is inclined to aesthetics and feeling. Emotions are fundamental for Tagore—and the influence of Romanticism is clear here. He is connecting and intertwining Indian and Western positions.

Metaphysically, he holds to a God who is a great lover, a supreme person, goodness, truth, and beauty. He is more concerned with direct emotional experience than metaphysical doctrine. He focuses on spiritual harmony in interpersonal relations of solidarity, kinship with nature, and self-integrity that takes shape in artistic creativity
