I have found…


I have found, yes, I have found the wealth of the Divine Name’s gem.
My true guru gave me a priceless thing.
With his grace, I accepted it.
I found the capital of my several births;
I have lost the whole rest of the world.
No one can spend it, no one can steal it.
Day by day it increases one and a quarter times.
On the boat of truth, the boatman was my true guru.
I came across the ocean of existence.
Mira’s Lord is the Mountain-Holder,
the suave lover, of whom I merrily, merrily sing.

  1. I read about how emperor Akbar was so impressed by Mirabai that he went to meet her under dusguise with Tansen the famous singer/musician. Imagine a muslim emperor humbling himself to hear Mirabai sing about Lord Krishna. How beautiful. Mirabai showed true devotion under straining situations to her Lord.

    Thanks for sharing this Robert.

    • Dear Sonya,

      Many thanks for your visit here and for sharing all of this with us. This is an example – I believe – of how Truth is Truth, regardless which window it shines through.

      All good wishes,
