Kabir: Songs of Kabir. V1. 02-Oct-2011
Kabîr (also Kabîra) (1440–1518) was a mystic poet and saint of India, whose writings have greatly influenced the Bhakti movement. The name Kabîr comes from Arabic al-Kabîr which means ‘The Great’ - the 37th name of God in Islam.
Not much is known about what sort of spiritual training Kabîr may have received. He did not become a sadhu, nor did he ever abandon worldly life. Kabîr 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.
