      Bhajan of Mirabai

      [Radhasoami Reality]:
      {Radhaswami Dayal ki Daya Radhaswami Sahai:
      "Grant Merciful Radhasoami Thy Grace and Protection"}

      Says Mira: 0 my Lord Shyam,
      Unless I can be with Thee,
      My birth and life are but an affliction.

      0 my companion,
      Without Shyam I cannot survive.
      Charmed by Thy beauty, 0 my Beloved,
      I offer Thee my body, mind and life.
      I have lost all appetite for food and drink
      And my eyes have gone dim.
      0 Murari, day and night
      I dream of meeting Thee,
      When shall I have Thy sight?
      Days and nights pass
      As I call upon Thee.
      Says Mira: 0 Hari,
      Without Thee my life flickers feebly on.

      I am mad with love
      And no one understands my plight.
      Only the wounded
      Understand the agonies of the wounded,
      When a fire rages in the heart.
      Only the jeweller knows the value of the jewel,
      Not the one who lets it go.
      In pain I wandered from door to door,
      But could not find a doctor.
      Says Mira: Harken, my Master,
      Mira's pain will subside
      When Shyam comes as the healer.

      Without my beloved Master
      I cannot live.
      Body, mind and life
      Have I given to the Beloved.
      Fascinated by His beauty,
      I gaze down the road
      Night and day.
      Says Mira: My Lord, accept your servant --
      It is all she asks.
