Kabir (Hindi: कबीर, IAST: Kabīr was a 15th-century Indian mystic poet and Saint, whose writings influenced Hinduism’s Bhakti movement and his verses are found in Sikhism’s scripture Adi Granth. His early life was in a Muslim family, but he was strongly influenced by his teacher, the Hindu bhakti leader Ramananda. He is also called the Father of spirituality as He came in all four yugas
Kabir Sahib tells His own story when He says, “I came in all four ages – in Satyug (Golden Age) my name was Satsukrat, in Tretayug (Silver Age) my name was Karunamae. When I came in Dvarparyug (Copper Age) my name was Maninder, in Kalyug (Iron Age) my name is Kabir.” In all four Ages He told the people of Naam’s greatness.
Two very interesting spiritual books by Kabir I would like to recommend: The Anurag Sagar of Kabir and the Dialogues of Kabir – For those being more interlectual and interested in spirituality, these are just the right books…
