Notes: About Kabir …

Kabir lived about 600 Years back in Varanasi( Benares) born to Hindu family and brought up by Muslim Weaver family.

Kabir sought to break the barriers between Hinduism and Islam by going into the heart of religion. His beliefs were mix of both religions. He believed in Hindu ideology of reincarnation and Karma but took Muslim concept of one God.He believed only in Lord Rama( His concept of  Rama was the one god (not pertaining to Hindu God).

He was the disciple of saint Ramanandha whom he met while taking bath in Ganges . It is said that Kabir, in the pre-dawn hours, stretched himself on the steps of a bathing ghat in Gangawhere Ramananda had his bath every day. On realising that he had unwittingly stepped on the body of someone, Ramananda uttered “Rama, Rama,” which became for Kabir the sacred mantra. Ramananda was taken to task for initiating Kabir by both orthodox Muslims and Hindus but when Ramananda understood Kabir’s depth of sincerity he embraced him and he became his most favourite disciple.

Kabir says …

Dheere Dheere   Sydhwaney music

Dheere Dheere Re Mana, Dheere Sub Kutch Hoye
Mali Seenche So Ghara, Ritu Aaye Phal Hoye
[Slowly slowly O mind, everything in own pace happens
Gardner may water a hundred buckets, fruit arrives only in its season]
