Mīrābāi – A Bahiraṅga-Bhakta (04/03/01)

G___ Mahārāja,

Hare Kṛṣṇa.

Concerning Mīrābāi, ____ Mahārāja looked her up on Prabhupāda’s folio and strangely enough, Śrīla Prabhupāda was quite appreciative about her. In one place, he even says “I have no objection to her songs.” The other party are 100% gonna quote that one…

That is the common people may sing them, nāmābhāsa, but Śrīla Prabhupāda never introduced this into his society, and neither did Śrīla Śrīdhara Mahārāja or any such ācārya. Therefore, our stance remains the same – Mīrābāi is rejected as an bahiraṅgabhakta, ie., an external devotee not having any connection with the svarūpa-śakti.
