ABSTRACT
The article deals with the theme of spiritual salvation in R.N. Tagore’s Gitanjali and T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land. Of hundred and five Nobel Laureates in Literature, these two–from the East and the West, awarded Nobel Prize in 1913 and 1948 respectively, express their noble thoughts of spiritual realization–the final solution to solve all the problems in the world. Tagore’s Gitanjali contains the devotional hymns of a dedicated soul whose ultimate aim is the realization of the Divine. In his voyage through life, the poet realizes Divinity in man in a spirit of complete surrender. T.S. Eliot in The Waste Land recommends the wisdom of India for the spiritual salvation of modern humanity as a way to spiritual regeneration. He reminds humanity of the teachings of the Upanishads.
