(A Google search on Louise Landes Levi brings up numerous references to Sweet On My Lips, the first edition from Cool Grove Press) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Praise for Sweet on my Lips The beautiful poems of Mirabai have been beautifully translated from the Middle Hindi by Louise Landes Levi, and they should serve as a fine key to this tantric poet s consciouness. - Lawrence Ferlinghetti Mirabai s spiritual vision and poetic genius shine through these pages. Verses of wounded pathos and soaring ecstasy are rendered here as vividly as if they had been spoken yesterday, yet with the incantatory power of sacred text. Levi s translations, brilliant in their lucidity, usher the reader directly into the heart of Mira s rare, impassioned devotion. - Miranda Shaw The relationship between Louise and Mirabai seems divinely ordained. It is hard to imagine a more perfect vehicle for the English language realization of this ecstatic work. -La Monte Young. Seller Inventory # NLF9781887276047
