Meera bhajan, Braj sahitya, literature, Vrindavan, Raag seva

Braj sahitya literature evolved around Krishna in Brajbhoomi - Vrindavan and its surrounding areas. Braj sahitya has lived in the oral tradition through music. Bhajan, sawaiya, dohe, pad, shloka, styles of writing poetry all find a place here. Similarly, the languages are as varied as the tongues that devotees' could speak. Sanskrit, the local dialect Braj-bhasha, Bangla, Marwari, and more regional dialects find place in Braj literature.
