How Guru of Meera transformed her life ?

Meera Bai's guru was Ravidas, a Dalit saint and poet who is revered by many in India. Ravidas had a profound influence on Meera Bai's spiritual and artistic development, and she incorporated many of his teachings and beliefs into her own works.

  • Meera Bai was a young bride who was married into a royal family. Despite her lavish lifestyle, she felt a deep sense of emptiness and was searching for something more meaningful in her life. One day, she heard Ravidas singing hymns to Lord Krishna, and she was deeply moved by his devotion.

  • Meera Bai decided to approach Ravidas and asked him to become her guru. Ravidas initially refused, saying that Meera Bai was from a higher caste and that he was a lowly cobbler. But Meera Bai was persistent and refused to take no for an answer.

  • Finally, Ravidas relented and agreed to become Meera Bai's guru. He taught her the principles of devotion to Lord Krishna and introduced her to the poetry of the mystic saints. Meera Bai was completely transformed by Ravidas' teachings and became a devoted follower of Lord Krishna.

  • Over time, Meera Bai's devotion to Lord Krishna became so intense that it caused friction with her family and society. But she remained steadfast in her beliefs and continued to compose poetry and sing bhajans in praise of Lord Krishna until the end of her life.

The story of how Ravidas changed Meera Bai's life is a testament to the power of devotion and the transformative influence of a guru.
