Gurudev, is it true that Mira Bai drank poison in the name of Lord Krishna and it did not harm her? What is the meaning of this?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Yes. There are many miracles which occur in the world and this is one such. You don’t try that. You can call yourself Mira Bai, but don’t try drinking poison.
That means that the consciousness which makes the body grow – the love and light in her was so much, that the poison did not matter, it just went through.
