Narsinh Mehta

[Adi Kavi] (1414? – 1481? / Talaja, Bhavnagar, Gujarat / India)

Vaishnav Jan to

Speak only as godlike of the man who feels another's pain
Who shares another's sorrow and pride does disdain

Who regards himself lowliest of the low
Speaks not a word of evil against anyone
Blessed is the mother who gave birth to such a son

Who looks upon everyone as his equal,
Lust he has renounced

[Hata Bildir]
