Kabir, a 15th century weaver-sage, is one of most loved and admired mystical poets of the world. His writings influenced Hinduism’s Bhakti movement and his verses are found in Sikh’s scripture Adi Granth. His early life was in a Muslim family, but he was strongly influenced by his teacher, the Hindu bhakti leader Ramananda.

Kabir suggested that True God is with the person who is on the path of righteousness, considered all creatures on earth as his own self, and who is passively detached from the affairs of the world. To know God, suggested Kabir, meditate with the mantra Rama, Rama.
