Nothing Is Really Mine Except Krishna.

Rating: 3.2

Nothing is really mine except Krishna.
O my parents, I have searched the world
And found nothing worthy of love.
Hence I am a stranger amidst my kinfolk
And an exile from their company,
Since I seek the companionship of holy men;
There alone do I feel happy,
In the world I only weep.
I planted the creeper of love
And silently watered it with my tears;

Now it has grown and overspread my dwelling.

Love Meera’s poetry. She was a woman who defied all norms to indulge herself in worship of Krishna and created some wonderful devotional poetry inspired by divine higher consciousness.

Great to see a poem of Mirabai. Her love for Krishna and her intense devotion is unparalleled. She saw only Krishna everywhere. No one or nothing else mattered. Wonderful song of pure bhakti.

A REALLY DEVOTIONAL POEM OF A DEVOTEE'S LOVE WITH THE LORD I ALSO VALUE HIM A LOT AND RECOMMEND THE BHAGWAD GITA AS THE BESTEST MANAGEMENT BOOK TO BE INTRODUCED BY ALL CULTURES NOT NECESSARILY AS A SCRIPTURE BUT A BOOK OF GOVERNANCE OF HUMAN LIFE AS IT WAS OVER 4500 YEARS AGO AND IS APPLICABLE EVEN NOW AND WILL FOREVER BE IN FUTURE IN ALL WALKS OF LIFE.THUS KRISHNA CONSCIOUSNESS IS HUMAN AWAKENING OF SENSES OF INTELLIGENCE AND HUMAN LOVE.AS ON THIS DAY FOR MILLENNIA TO COME
