Kabir – Poet and Philosopher (Talk)


New Acropolis (Khar). Ashray Bungalow, 2nd Flr. 19th Road. Between 13th Rd. and Khar Danda Road. Khar (W). Mumbai.

Kabir, the 15th Century poet and mystic wrote couplets that weave together the core of Bhakti and Sufi ideas. He used the medium of ‘dohas’ written in everyday language to share his profound insights with everyone.

As we trace the life of Kabir, we see a journey fraught with contradiction. The historical accounts of his life are uncertain and scholars differ in their claims of his religious lineage. Yet the simplicity with which Kabir’s dohas speak of the truth, highlight his deep and clear philosophical journey. We will attempt to explore together Kabir’s legacy and the serenity and simplicity of the man behind this beautiful poetry.
