Songs of Kabir

Start Publishing LLC #ad - A great religious reformer, the founder of a sect to which nearly a million northern Hindus still belong, it is yet supremely as a mystical poet that Kabór lives for us. They did so, and found in the place of the corpse a heap of flowers; half of which were buried by the Mohammedans at Maghar, and half carried by the Hindus to the holy city of Benares to be burned.

The poet kabór is one of the most interesting personalities in the history of Indian mysticism. A beautiful legend tells us that after his death his Mohammedan and Hindu disciples disputed the possession of his body; which the Mohammedans wished to bury, the Hindus to burn. As they argued together, kabór appeared before them, and told them to lift the shroud and look at that which lay beneath.

He was educated at home and although at seventeen he was sent to England for formal schooling, he did not finish his studies there.

For the world he became the voice of India's spiritual heritage; and for India, especially for Bengal, he became a great living institution.

Dover Publications #ad - The short poems, called ghazals, are sonnet-like arrangements of varied numbers of couplets. This collection is derived from Hafiz's Divan collected poems, a classic of Sufism.

This outstanding translation of hafiz's poetry was created by historian and Arabic scholar Gertrude Bell, "These are the utterances of a great poet, the imaginative interpreter of the heart of man; they are not of one age, who observed, or of another, but for all time.

All our actions performed anywhere are our duties, and work is worship. His work is understood and accessible to generations of Indians, more so than any other Saint and in India remains one of the most quoted mystic poets of all time.
