Kabir: Songs of Kabir. V1. 02-Oct-2011
Kabīr (also Kabīra) (14401518) was a mystic poet and saint of India, whose writings have greatly influenced the Bhakti movement. The name Kabīr comes from Arabic al-Kabīr which means The Great - the 37th name of God in Islam.
Not much is known about what sort of spiritual training Kabīr may have received. He did not become a sadhu, nor did he ever abandon worldly life. Kabīr chose instead to live the balanced life of a householder and mystic, a tradesman and contemplative.
Translator: Rabindranath Tagore (7 May 1861 7 August 1941), sobriquet Gurudev, was a Bengali polymath who reshaped his region's literature and music. He became the first non-European Nobel laureate by earning the 1913 Prize in Literature. In translation his poetry was viewed as spiritual and mercurial; his seemingly mesmeric persona, floccose locks, and empyreal garb garnered him a prophet-like aura in the West.
