Kabir Das, a mystical poet and great Saint of India, was born in the year 1440 and died in the year 1518. It is considered that he got all his spiritual training in his early childhood from his Guru named, Ramananda. One day, he became a well-known disciple of the Guru Ramananda. His love and devotion towards the supreme one clearly reflects in his poetry. He is one of the medieval Indian saints of Bhakti and Sufi movement. He is against all ritualistic and ascetic methods as means to salvation.
The moral tone is quite strong in Kabir’s hymns. The man, who is kind and practices righteousness, who remains passive in the affairs of the world, who considers creatures of the world as his own self, he attains the immortal being; the true God is ever with him. He clearly suggests moral discrimination between good and bad deeds. What can the helpless road do, when the traveller does not walk understandingly? What can one do, if, with lamp in hand, one falls in the well or goes astray with open eyes? Discern you now between good and evil. It is not surprising that Kabir’s satire was brought to bear not only simply on the vices and weaknesses of men but reached through and beyond them to the very system themselves. Saint Kabir rebelled against the pretension of resolving by the means of books or by way of authority, the mystery of human conditions and the problem of liberation (Moksha). He spent his last 40 days living in a place where it was believed that if you die you will born as a Donkey in next life.
