One of the famous timeless stories of our land is the story of Meera and her immortal affection and love for Lord Krishna. Born a Rajput princess, in Rajasthan, Meera Bai ended up being a saint in love with her god.
The life of Meera Bai is splendor and magnificence from the palace to the austerity of a hermitage which is the manifestation of transcendental love between the Divine and the human, the heaven and the earth, the universe and the soul, the immortal and the mortal also.
Her unconditional, immeasurable, incomparable love for Krishna, but for other beings, they worship Lord Krishna as their Almighty, indeed Meera Bai was a Lord Krishna devotee and she dedicates her life to the god for the sake of her devotion and spirituality.
She used to spend her time in writing and humming devotional songs in which she only praised the Lord, which knew no religious bounds and social barriers anyway.
Meera Bai is known as an epitome and an embodiment of divine love for Lord Krishna. Most of the devotional songs which she sang for the Lord display her numinous feelings which are now regarded as the ‘Meerabai Poems’ or ‘Meerabai Bhajans’, still popular among the mass.
Being ng the greatest devotee of Lord Krishna, Meera Bai turns to be globally famous for her love.
Saint Meerabai Quotes…
Let people say good things or bad things
I will bear them all!
Meera cannot love even a moment without her beloved Lord Krishna.
O my mind,
Worship the lotus feet of the Indestructible One!
O my companion,
Worldly comfort is an illusion,
As soon you get it, it goes.
My eyes are sad without seeing you!
Ever since you left, my Lord!
I have no peace of mind!
I am mad, not conscious of my body!
Nobody understands my agony!
Meera says: only He knows my state,
in whose hands are life and death!
Drink the nectar of the Divine Name,
O human! Drink the nectar of the Divine Name!
Leave the bad company,
always sit among the righteous company.
With my tears,
I watered the creeper of love that I planted;
Now the creeper has grown spread all over,
and bear the fruit of bliss.
If abandoning one’s wife could summon God
Would not thousands be eunuchs?
Mirabai knows that to find the Divine One,
The only indispensable is Love.
I have no father, no mother, relatives or brothers.
I have broken family ties; who can do anything?
I have spoken of my love through my tears.
Servant Meera has fallen in love with the Lord,
He is now mine. Gopala (Lord Krishna) is mine. No one else!
One night as I sat in quiet,
I seemed on the verge of entering a world inside so vast
I know it is the source of all of us.
Do not mention the name of love,
O my simple-minded companion.
Strange is the path
When you offer your love.
Your body is crushed at the first step
