MiraBai ~ A Real Goddess
















mira says ~

The people of the world
Would die of shame
To be caught taking the Name of God
They will tramp round the whole village,
But feel too fatigued
To visit the temple of Hari
If a quarrel arises
They run to it at once,
Leaving what they are doing in the house
To hear a buffoon crack jests,
Or to watch a courtesan dance,
They will sit twelve hours at a stretch
Mira's Lord is the courtly Giridhara
She has taken refuge at His lotus feet




I do not care about social norms
Nor do I keep my family's honour.
I cannot forget, even for a moment,
The beauty of my lover...
O my companion,
Without Shyam I suffer greatly. Without Him,
Who can give me strength to endure?
The world is a hissing cauldron of error
It takes no joy
In cultivating the society of the good
They abuse the holy men
While themselves earning demerit
By their wicked deeds
All sixty-eight places of pilgrimage
Reside at the feet of a holy man
Whoso abuses a holy man will go blind,
Be crippled and end in hell
Without the Name of God
One does not gain liberation,
One merely circulates
In the eighty-four lakhs of wombs
The fools waste their precious lives,
Not seeking the society of the good
Even in a dream
Mira says: My Lord, I take refuge in Thee
Thus will I attain
The highest state open to man

it is said when Mira went to visit a gnown PersonaliTy in Vrindavan,

"she was told that he could not see a woman as it was against his code of conduct. Mira exclaimed, “I thought in Vrindavan the only man is Krishna and all others are gopis.” On hearing this retort the Acharya realized his mistake. He came out of the hut and conducted her inside."

Praising You keePs reality conscious in one
to Praise, to be humble to You is being a warrior on the side of Truth
intense Praise takes initiative & disciPline, has bliss as the reward

:) Mira Bai was the epitome of love and unflinching devotion to krishn. A real goddess who withstood all the adversities with grace, never forgetting krishn. You have so beautifully depicted her devotion and love. I bow. Pranam.

meera sang, meera danced
but insincerity and pride
has killed even a flying bird

always in His heart, singing true
worthy of being one of a colour
shown Venus land on land
shown Venus sky in the sky
with promise only to choosen few
to go where would be His forever
a real meera is a daisy humbled
whom PT teaches to dance and fly

O Girdhari ! O Murari !
O TriPurari ! O Chakradhari !
! bow to You !!

You are so great to even acknowledge and share this, You are so Generous and full of ComPassion to acknowledge true feelings of Meera bai. People turn dead here to a even notice such higher virtues of any being or Divine Virtues of Supreme Soul like You.

Your heart is so full of mercy to share such beautiful song of Meera bai...such hearttouching Praise of Higher and Divine...Whenever I think of Meera it always remind me one Song~

Payo ji Maine Ram Ratan dhan Payo-2
Vastu amolak di mere satguru, KriPa kar apnayo....

O Meera ke Prabhu Girdhar Nagar !! ! bow to You !!
