Waterfall of Spirit rain 30 July 2006
By eurydike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Kabir once held up a reading to 1500 of his devotees for two days, in order to wait for Mirabai to arrive. That's how important He thought She was.

In Kabir's words:

You have slept for millions and millions of years. Why not wake up this morning?

Thanks to Jane Hirshfield and Robert Bly, for standing in for Mirabai and Kabir.

These poems are that good.

A waterfall of morning to wash your spirit.

50 poems...Meera IS bhakti....her poems are alive with Love and Longing allowing the reader to experience rather than merely read. Meera allows you to taste Divine Love.

Better get the long authentic version of these poems 18 April 2011
By R. Watkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bly and Hirshfield have made well phrased cries of passion out of Mirabai's poems. I recommend A. J. Allston's edition, however, (also available on Amazon) of The Devotional Poems of Mirabai as giving the poems in longer and more authentic form.
Mirabai trancends time. 12 Aug. 2013
By Jane Bernard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Love is always a timely topic of conversation. How love is spiritual as well as physical is a magic we may be lucky enough to experience but sure is difficult to 'explain'. These poems are an expression of just that. Enjoy reading them. [...]

You don't really need mood altering chemicals ever if you have poetry like this around. Just stick to Mirabai, she makes you higher!
