"He left his fingerprint on a glass the Earth drinks from.
Every religion has studied it. Churches and temples use the geometry of those lines to establish rites and laws and prayers and our ideas of the Universe.
I guess there is just no telling how out of hand--and how wonderfully WILD--things will get...
When our lips catch up to His." #mirabai #1500ad #musings #lovepoem

"And the sky became my heart,
and the earth - my own body." #quote #mirabai #nature

The saffron of virtue and contentment 
Is dissolved in the water-gun of love and affection. 
Pink and red clouds of emotion are flying about, 
Limitless colours raining down. #Mirabai #Colours

I Do Not Care About Social Norms.
I will fasten the bells of his love to my feet
And dance in front of Girdhar.
Dancing and dancing I will please his eyes;
My love is an ancient one.
My love is the only truth.
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.
I am dyed in Hari's colour. [Translated by Shreprakash Kurl]

Today's #outfit to celebrate #India's 🇮🇳 70th #IndependenceDay and #Janmashtami (Krishna's birthday) - a pure #silk #saree in #skyblue with a #red border from #Kancheepuram #TamilNadu #India and a #kundan #pendant #handpainted with the images of #Krishna and his consort #Radha! On that note, my grandmother's stories about #Mirabai, a 16th century mystic poetess who considered Krishna her lover and husband always fascinated me. Mirabai spent her entire life pining for Krishna ~ her steadfast love along with her talent as a #poetess made her one of my childhood heroines!

A Hundred Objects Close By

I know a cure for sadness:

Let your hands touch something that
makes your eyes smile.

I bet there are a hundred objects close by that can do that.

Look at beauty’s gift to us–
her power is so great she enlivens
the earth, the sky, our soul.

"I consider it an absolute classic, if nobody agrees with that, it is too bad," said Kiran Nagarkar when asked about his Sahitya Akademi Award winner book Cuckold.
Honestly, I cannot but totally agree. This book, set in Chittor, is told from the point of view of Mirabai's husband, the Maharaja Kumar. Not only a Cuckold but also a forgotten one. He had the troubles and the stress of being an heir apparent when fratricide was normal. Add to that the burden of unrequited love and the constant wars the Rajputs *must* fight. "Sometimes i think we have no present, only the past," he says when talking about the Rajput glory and pride.
At 600+ pages, it is slightly long but brilliantly written. There is never a dull moment in the book. Easily one of my favourite reads of the year. .

हे सखी, मेरी लज्जा ही मेरी बैरन बन गयी हैं । जब कृष्ण यहाँ से जा रहे थे तभी मुझे भी उनके साथ ही चले जाना चाहिए था| कठोर हृदय वाला अक्रूर जब कंस का दूत बन कर आया और रथ सजाकर उसमें बैठाकर कृष्ण को ले गया| और मैं हाथ मलकर पछतातीं रह गयी। मैंने प्राण क्यों नहीं त्याग दिए ? Does 'laaj' here refer to the ego ? Meera's विरह beautifully presented by Lata Mangeshkar, especially when she sings "विरह में तण तई". #meerabai #meera #krishna #latamangeshkar #hridaynathmangeshkar #bhajan #srikrishna #surrender #selfsurrender #samarpan #mirabai #devotion #mystic #mysticalpoet #mysticism #mystical #spiritual #spirituality #spiritualindia #music

"You are beautiful, you are enough, you must believe in that, believe the truth." As we, the women of #mirabai, return to our homes, this experience will live in each of us deeply. I keep trying to explain the gravity of this experience and no set of words properly describes my feelings. Instead, I reflect upon all of the stunning poetry we sang and find a peace; a new mantra. Our roots are beautiful, our roots are strong. #seenandheard
