Mai Bagiyana Se, A Bhajan by Mirabai

Bhajan by Mirabai

As I listened to the musicians perform Mirabai’s exquistite bhajan, I paid attention to the variation in the music. To my ear, the refrain was light and simple, whereas the verses were more challenging for me to follow. Reflecting on this, I understood how seeing the presence of the divine in all things is essential, but can be challenging at times. I realized that, as challenging as sadhana can be, when I remain steady on the path I too can offer devotion at the Lord's feet.

I felt such love and devotion listening to this bhajan. As I followed along with the English translation, I felt my own heart singing and I wished I could keep singing these words throughout my day. I felt that Mirabai’s focus is the true focus of my sadhana—keeping my attention on the Lord.
 
I am so grateful for the ways my Guru's grace keeps my longing to serve God alive inside me.

My heart filled with the love of the Lord as I read Mirabai's poem. I feel kinship with her as she describes how each morning she invokes the Lord through her devotional singing. Each morning when I wake, I fill my mind with the sweet sounds of the Shiva Arati, awakening the Lord within and setting the stage for morning meditation.
 
As Mirabai sings, I feel I too behold the Lord's beautiful form.

Every morning I greet the day
Every day a gift
Of time
Of God
Pranams and songs 
Flame waving
Dakshina sparkling
Oh! My Master is the sweetest.
 
Delightful
A drumbeat
A pulse beneath the feet 
Cymbals tinkling, tickling
Heart rising
Gurumayi inside the practices
Gurumayi inside the body
Gurumayi inside mind and heart.
 
Every morning I greet the day
Hello, friend! Hello, family! Hello, love!
Without shaktipat, who would greet this day?
Surya's horses at the gate!
Every morning I greet the day.
