About the Author:

"Kabir (1440-1518) (born in 1398 according to some accounts) was a mystic poet or poet sants of India, whose literature has greatly influenced the Bhakti as well as Sufi movements of India.

Kabir was born to a Hindu Brahmin widow and later adopted by childless Muslim weavers named Niru and Nimma, who found him near Lahara Tara lake, adjacent to the holy city of Varanasi.

Early in life he became a disciple of the celebrated Hindu ascetic, Ramananda, who brought to Northern India the religious revival which Ramanuja, the great twelfth-century reformer of Hinduism had initiated in the South.

A Bhakti saint, a contemporary of Guru Nanak Dev, who sang the ideals of seeing all of humanity as one, and also the path of natural oneness with God. His Baani is registered in the holy book of Sikhs, Guru Granth Sahib. He was known to be a weaver and later became famed for scorning religious affiliation. His philosophies and ideas of loving devotion to God are expressed in metaphor and language from both the Hindu Vedanta and Bhakti streams using Sadhukaddi, a vernacular dialect of Hindi which is a mix of Hindu, Bhojpuri, Braj Bhasha, Awadhi and Rajsthani.

Kabir is also considered one of the early northern India Sants. He was initiated by Ramananda. One source for modern adaptations of Kabir's poetry is Robert Bly's The Kabir Book: Forty-Four of the Ecstatic Poems of Kabir." (Quote from wikipedia.org)
