The main idea of the poem is to lift the poet’s country into a heaven of freedom. Tagore prays to God to give his countrymen certain virtues like fearlessness, knowledge, broad-mindedness, logical mind etc. that can enable his nation to achieve and enjoy freedom to the fullest.

And this main idea of the poem is found in the very last line of the poem where he says:

Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.
