Meera Bai Jayanti 2018

Meera Bai (1498-1547 circa) was a great Hindu poet and ardent devotee of Lord Krishna. She was one of the significant Sants of the Vaishnava Bhakti movement. Some 1300 poems written in passionate praise of Lord Krishna are credited to her.

Meera was a Rajput princess born about 1498 in Kudaki, Rajasthan. She was married to Bhoj Raj, the ruler of Chittor. She took no interest in her spouse as she believed herself to be married to Lord Krishna. According to popular belief, she miraculously merged with the image of Krishna in circa 1547 at the age of 49.

Historians believe that Meera Bai was a disciple of Guru Ravidas and accept popular beliefs which associate her with Sant Tulsidas and her interactions with Rupa Goswami in Vrindavan.

We found no historical record on the birth anniversary of Meera Bai. However as per Hindu lunar calendar, the day of Sharad Purnima is observed as the birth anniversary of Meerabai.
