There was a famous princess named Meera. She had nurtured prema bhakti towards Lord Krishna right from her childhood. She was very good at singing and was an adept in playing on the Veena. She was young, charming and had a deep understanding of the essence of prema bhava. She was always engaged in singing melodiously in praise of Shri Giridhari. Due to her deep love for Him she was oblivious to the restrictions imposed by Vedic precepts and the code of worldly life.
