    One  Short Bhakti Poem

    I have been reading, The Hindus, An Alternative History by Wendy Doniger.  In the chapter on Bhakti, she translates this poem:

     

    People

    Male and Female,

    blush when

    a cloth covering their shame comes loose.

    When all the world is the eye of the lord,

    onlooking everywhere, what can you

    cover and conceal?

     

    by the female poet named Mahadevi,

    12th Century
