Kabir Doha

Our history has blessed us with the sage advice of Kabir. And we've decided to pay tribute to the poet and saint whose rhymes gave us enough wisdom for an entire lifetime. Kabir, or Sant Kabir as he was known, has inspired generations of people with his popular sayings. There's one "doha", or couplet, from him for every life situation. His poetry was so full of spiritual insight that he ceased to be a mere poet and won the title "Sant", for saint.

Kabir Das, a mystical poet and great Saint of India, was born in the year 1440 and died in the year 1518. According to the Islam the meaning of the Kabir is The Great. Kabir Panth is the huge religious community which identifies the Kabir as the originator of the Sant Mat sects. The members of Kabir Panth are known as the Kabir panthis who had extended all over the over north and central India.

It is considered that he got all his spiritual training from his Guru named, Ramananda, in his early childhood. One day, he became a well known disciple of the Guru Ramananda. The house of the Kabir Das has accommodated students and scholars for living and studying his great works.
