Turning point in Sant Mirabais Life
The turning point in Sant Mirabais life occurred when once Akbar and his court musician Tansen came in disguise to Chittor to hear Meeras devotional and inspiring songs. Both entered the temple and listened to Meeras soul - stirring songs to their hearts content. Before he departed, he touched the holy feet of Meera and placed a necklace of priceless gems in front of the idol as a present. Somehow the news reached the KumbhaRana that Akbar had entered the sacred temple in disguise, touched the feet of Sant Mirabai and even presented her a necklace. The Rana became furious. He told Sant Mirabai, Drown yourself in the river and never show your face to the world in future. You have brought great disgrace on my family.
Sant Mirabai obeyed the words of King. She proceeded to the river to drown herself. The names of the Lord Govinda, Giridhari, Gopala were always on her lips. She sang and danced in ecstasy on her way to the river. When she raised her feet from the ground, a hand from behind grasped her and embraced her. She turned behind and saw her beloved Giridhari. She fainted on him. After a few minutes she opened her eyes. Shri Krushna smiled and gently whispered: My dear Meera, your life with your mortal relatives is over now. You are absolutely free. Be cheerful. You are and have always been mine.
