We are so fortunate that two magnificent poets have been drawn to Mirabai's music. Like two twining flutes, Robert Bly and Jane Hirshfield ignite these subtle, surrendered-heart notes, as 'a steeped herb' releasing its cure, and even though we ourselves may be bogged down in our 'patch of gooseberry bushes' (both their images), still we catch. -Coleman Barks, author of The Drowned Book
and The Essential Rumi
