Wisdom-Quote from Mirabai, an unparalleled Devotee of the Lord

" I am mad with Love,

Understands the agony of the wounded,

When the fire rages in the Heart. -Mirabhai

A Free Verse Sonnet

Cry! Cry, O Lantern; let the agony of thy longing,

Be but for my enduring Love. So what?

So what if I have placed thorns in thy path?

I will give you roses that will constantly endure,

Even unto the life to come.


Look at the Light of the sun!

It fades at sunset, only to rise again,

On another glorious dawn.

Could you but see the flame,

Of the tears burning in thy Spirit,

You will not doubt the worth

Of a Light named ‘human.’


Cry! Cry, O Lantern; let the agony of thy longing,

Be but for My enduring Love.

Wisdom-Quote from Mirabai

" I planted the creeper of Love,

And silently watered it with my tears;

Now it has grown and overspread my dwelling." -Mirabai

" O Seeker,The sun peeping through the heavens, may suddenly be obstructed by the scattering clouds. Even so, I veil Myself and like the sun, I will return again when your vessel - like the virgin dawn - is pure and immaculate, to infuse My effulgent Light." -Manatita
