Muktabai : Though He Has no Form

Muktabai was a 13th c. CE mystic and poet of Maharashtra. She is considered a saint of the Varkari movement, within the Hindu Bhakti tradition, as is her older brother, Dnyaneshwar, but little is known about her personal life.

Though he has no form
my eyes saw him,

his glory is fire in my mind
that knows

his secret inner form
invented by the soul.

What is
beyond the mind

has no boundary.
In it our senses end.

Mukta says: Words cannot hold him
yet in him all words are.

Translation Willis Barnstone
