Introduction to Kabir

  • Six hundred years ago Kabir was born in India in 1398 AD. He lived for 120 years and is said to have relinquished his body in 1518. This period is also said to be the beginning of Bhakti Movement in India.

    A weaver by profession, Kabir ranks among the world's greatest poets. Back home in India, he is perhaps the most quoted author. The Holy Guru Granth Sahib contains over 500 verses by Kabir. The Sikh community in particular and others who follow the Holy Granth, hold Kabir in the same reverence as the other ten Gurus.

    Kabir openly criticized all sects and gave a new direction to the Indian philosophy. This is due to his straight forward approach that has a universal appeal. It is for this reason that Kabir is held in high esteem all over the world. To call Kabir a universal Guru is not an over exaggeration. To me personally, the very name Kabir means Guru's Grace.

    I have been personally very deeply influenced by reading Kabir. Why Kabir? reveals my feelings and also, how this idea of my translating Kabir's verses, came into its being.

    Inspite of the simplicity of Kabir's poetry, I must say, it is hard to translate. I humbly present some of his Dohas, Love Songs and Mystic Poems, in the following pages.

    Please note that what you see today is only a beginning.  As we move along, more verses will be added on regular basis. It is my intention to include every possible known verse of Kabir on this site.  This is not an easy task as according to rough estimates there are over 700 verses of Kabir.  But I will try my best to do it. It may take its own time though
    ..तन है तेरा मन है तेरा प्राण हैं तेरे जीवन तेरा,सब हैं तेरे सब है तेरा मैं हूं तेरा तू है मेरा..
