“If by bathing daily God could be realized

Sooner would I be a whale in the deep;

If by eating roots and fruits He could be known

Gladly would I choose the form of goat;

If the counting of rosaries uncovered Him

I would say my prayers on mammoth beads;

If bowing before stone images unveiled Him

A flinty mountain I would humbly worship;

If by drinking milk the Lord could be imbibed

Many calves and children would know Him;

If abandoning one’s wife would summon God

Would not thousands be eunuchs?

Mirabai knows that to find the Divine One

The only indispensable is Love.”

mirabai(Translation by Sri Swami Paramhansa Yogananda)
