Mirabai was the supreme bhakta. When she danced, in her legs revealed her surrender to her Lord; when she sang, in her words revealed her yearning to unite with Him. Neither a dancer, nor singer, Mira was ‘bhakti’ incarnate – surrender in love, a surrender beyond questions, calculations, fear, and all thoughts of profit or loss, something that Chaitanya called Gopi-bhava – single-pointed submission as Gopis had for Krishna. It is said that once sage Narad saw Narayana tormented by acute headache. A bewildered Narad asked him if he could do anything that would relieve him of pain. Narayana told him that the dust of someone’s feet alone could do it. Narad could give the dust of his own feet but how could he, an humble devotee of Narayana, do it? He went to Narayana’s spouses but considering it a sin they too declined. Narad thought he could find someone in Brij who could give his or her feet’s dust. He went to Brij, met Gopis and told them all about Narayana’s pain and the remedy he sought. Not a moment of hesitation, Gopis collected a basketful dust of their feet and gave it to Narad. A sin or virtue, beyond all calculations of profit and loss the concern of Gopis was their Lord’s relief – the Chaitanya’s Gopi-bhava. This was the form of Mira’s ‘bhakti’, and in this Mira discovered her ultimate strength to face whatever came her way : ‘Koyi nindau koyi bindau main chalungi chal aputhi’ –whether condemned or lauded Mira would go the way not treaded ever before.

To Mira, the ties between her Lord and her were those of love, the love that looked like this world’s. Not an inhabitant of this world, Mira discovers in it the frame for her Lord’s picture, in the world’s sensuous ways, her Lord’s ways, and in its idiom, the diction to communicate with Him. Not a symbolic or elemental merger, Mira desired, with her body, soul and all faculties, that her Lord, when He met her, rushed to her, smiled and embraced her – ‘Uthi hans kantha lagao’. In love, her form of devotion and its essence, Mira sought release from the cycle of birth and death : ‘Jana Mira Kun Girdhara milaya, dukha metan sukha bheri, Ruma ruma sata bhayi ura mein, miti gayi phera pheri’ – the moment Mira met Girdhara, sorrows vanished and happiness emerged, all agitations of mind and body extinguished, and the cycle of birth and death is destroyed.

Interestingly, Mira’s utmost poetic imagery and devotional idiom centre on marriage, particularly its bonds that tie the two together, resulting union and its delight, and separation and its pangs. She presents herself as her Lord’s virgin, bride, humble servant, one willing to live the way he liked … Mira seems to have discovered in marriage love’s essential idiom – formal and intrinsic; and, it is somewhat natural for it was an event of marriage that transformed the human-born Mirabai into the spiritual Mirabai; to some extent, the spiritual Mirabai was born out of an event of marriage. As the popular tradition has it, once when yet a child, Mira saw a marriage procession reaching her neighbourhood. A curious mind, she asked her mother what for so many richly bejeweled and costumed men riding horses and palanquins had come there. When told that it was a marriage procession and that the most richly bejeweled youth riding as splendidly saddled horse walking ahead of others was the bridegroom come to marry their neighbour’s daughter, Mira innocently asked her mother where was her groom. Mira’s mother smiled at her innocence and to amuse her picked the idol of Krishna and giving it to her said that he was her groom. Mira’s adolescent mind believed it. She recalled how, though not in a procession, her groom had likewise come. A few days ago a ‘yogi’ – ascetic, carrying this idol of Krishna, came to her house. With its mesmeric beauty the idol bewitched the child and she insisted to have it but the ascetic did not concede and went away, and the eyes of a sad Mira followed him till he was visible. But, a little later, the ‘yogi’ came back, gave the idol to Mira and left. It is said that no other than Raidasa, the ‘jogi’ heard a divine voice, after he had left Mira’s village, instructing him to go back and give the idol to the child.

This painting was created in the city of Kishangarh, Rajasthan.

  • I want to buy this. The concern I have is that is on Cotton Fabric. Can you have this photo available on Canvas? Also can you send a picture with frame with cotton fabric?

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)

Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
