SPIRITUAL POEMS: “Drink The Nectar” by Mirabai

Drink The Nectar

Drink the nectar of the Divine Name,
O human! Drink the nectar of the Divine Name!
Leave the bad company,
always sit among righteous company.

Hearken to the mention of God (for your own sake).
Concupiscence, anger, pride, greed, attachment:
wash these out of your consciousness.
Mira’s Lord is the Mountain-Holder,
the suave lover.
Soak yourself in the dye of His colour.

by Mirabai

Mirabai

She belonged to a Royal Family of Mewarh and was a princess of Mewarh. But she had too much love for her god and sacrificed everything even her family for god. She is a celebrated Bhakti saint, particularly in the North Indian Hindu tradition.
