Mirabai (Other) Bio


Mirabai (मीराबाई) (1498-1547CE) (alternate orthographies: Meera; Mira; Meera Bai) was a Hindu mystical poetess, philosopher and sage. Her compositions are popular throughout India. She is held to have been a disciple of Ravidas. She composed between 1200 to 1300 prayerful songs called bhajans. These bhajans are in the bhakti tradition, and most passionately praised Lord Krishna. The extant version of her poems are in a Rajasthani dialect of Hindi and in Gujarati. Many of the details of her life are pieced together from her poetry and the stories later recounted by members of her community. While her hagiography is held as truth by followers of the bhakti tradition, the historical authenticity of most of her story is the subject of scholarly debate.
