Kabir

( 1440 – 1518 )

The son of a Moslem weaver, Kabir
was born in Benares, India. A married householder, he earned
his livelihood from weaving and became one of the most
influential figures of northern India and has been hailed as
the “Father of Hindi literature”.

His spiritual growth was equally
guided by the Sufi poetry of the great Persian mystics (Rumi
among them) and by the Hindu teacher Ramananda. While Kabir
converted to Hinduism, all his life Kabir sought to unite
the conflicting streams of Muslim and Hindu spirituality. He
attracted both Muslim and Hindu disciples and referred to
God as both Allah and Rama.

He spoke the language of the
ordinary people, infusing it with the brightness of his
Realization. In many popular verses, Kabir extols the
supreme help afforded by a true Master and praises the
devotion in the disciple. He sings of the “dice of love”
which are to be cast on the body as the board, according to
the throw learned from the Heart-Master.

His following today, called the
Kabirpanthir, still numbers nearly one million adherents. He
was also a forerunner of Sikhism, which was founded by Guru
Nanak, his disciple.
