Words of Wisdom from Poems of Mira Bai

Life waxes and wanes imperceptibly,
it does not stay long.
The leaf that has once fallen
does not return to the branch.

with its swift, irresistible tide.We do not get a human life
just for the asking.
Birth in a human body
is the reward for good deeds
in former births.Mira Bai
