Kabir

Data de nascimento: 1440
Data de falecimento: 1518

Kabir foi um dos grandes poetas místicos ou santos-poetas da Índia medieval, tendo composto poemas que evidenciam a fusão entre o movimento de bhakti hindu e o sufismo muçulmano, movimentos religiosos que exercem profunda influência cultural em todo o mundo até os nossos dias.

Kabir nasceu numa família de brâmanes hindus e foi mais tarde adotado por muçulmanos, no norte da índia, perto de Varanasi. Ainda jovem tornou-se discípulo Ramananda, que no norte da India difundia a doutrina de bhakti como promulgada por Ramanuja no sul do sub-continente, no século XII.

Kabir foi contemporâneo de outros protagonistas famosos do movimento de bhakti da Índia medieval, tais como Mirabai, Caitanya, Tulsidas e Guru Nanak, o principal preceptor dos sikhs.

„Are you looking for me?
I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
you will not find me in the stupas,
not in Indian shrine rooms,
nor in synagogues,
nor in cathedrals:
not in masses,
nor kirtans,
not in legs winding around your own neck,
nor in eating nothing but vegetables.
When you really look for me,
you will see me instantly —
you will find me in the tiniest house of time.
Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God?
He is the breath inside the breath.“

„Many have died; you also will die. The drum of death is being beaten. The world has fallen in love with a dream. Only sayings of the wise will remain.“ The Bijak of Kabir

„... But if a mirror ever makes
you sad

you should know
that it does
not know
you.“

„If you want the truth,
I’ll tell you the truth:
Listen to the secret sound,
the real sound,
which is inside you.“

„Love does not grown on trees or brought in the market, but if one wants to be "LOVED" one must first know how to give (unconditional)LOVE..“


„I laugh when I hear that the fish in the water is thirsty.

You don't grasp the fact that what is most alive of all is inside your own house;
and you walk from one holy city to the next with a confused look!

Kabir will tell you the truth: go wherever you like, to Calcutta or Tibet;
if you can't find where your soul is hidden,
for you the world will never be real!“
The Kabir book: Forty-four of the ecstatic poems of Kabir

„... What is God?
He is the breath inside the breath.“
