MIRABAI


Do not leave me alone


Do not leave me alone, a helpless woman.

My strength, my crown,

I am empty of virtues,

You, the ocean of them.

My heart’s music, you help me

In my world-crossing.

You protected the king of the elephants.

You dissolve the fear of the terrified.


Where can I go? Save my honour

For I have dedicated myself to you

And now there is no one else for me.



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.



That Dark Dweller


That dark Dweller in Braj

Is my only refuge.

O my companion,

Worldly comfort is an illusion,

As soon you get it, it goes.

I have chosen the Indestructible for my refuge,

Him whom the snake of death

Will not devour.


My Beloved dwells in my heart,

I have actually seen that Abode of Joy.

Mira’s Lord is Hari, the Indestructible.

My Lord, I have taken refuge with Thee,

Thy slave.
