    To Religion

    There used to be a gathering of sages and saints at Kabir Saheb ji. Kabir Saheb ji did the Leela of not being educated in Kali Yuga, but in reality he himself is a scholar. You can guess this from their couplets like - 'Masi kagad thuyo nahi, pen gahi nahi haath. He also took the leela of not writing the book himself and by speaking the voice from his lotus mouth, he got the disciples to write them. The glory of Ramnaam (the real name of the Supreme God) resonates in all your thoughts. Kabir Parmeshwar believed in only one God and was vehemently opposed to rituals. Idol worship, fasting, Eid, Masjid, Mandir was his idea that your salvation is not possible through these activities. They says:- 'Harimor Piu Main Ram Ki Bahuriya ', To akbhi Kehte Hain, 'Hari Janni Main balak Tora'. Aur kabhi "Bada Hua to Kya hua jaise Ped Khajur. Panchhi ko chhaya nahi, Phal Lage Badi Dur". At that time, people of both Hindu and Muslim religions considered Kabir Saheb ji as their enemy because they used to give information about God to both the religions by taking their Iktara, they used to explain that we are all children of one God. He kept his language simple and intelligible so that it could reach the common man. Kabir Saheb ji loved a peaceful life and he was a fan of virtues like non-violence, truth, virtue etc. Due to his simplicity, saintly nature and saintly nature, he is being respected in foreign countries as well.
