The Birth Of Kabirdas

Although no authentic facts about the birth of Kabir are found as such, according to some beliefs, Kabir was born in 1398 to a widowed Brahmin. Soon after birth, his mother left him at a place called Lahartara in Kashi. There, Neeru and Neema, who belonged to the Julaha caste by profession, saw this young child and brought him along. Young Kabir was raised in the courtyard of Neeru and Neema’s home. Evidence of such instances can be found in some of Kabir’s works such as “जात जुलाहा नाम कबीरा / Jat Julaha Naam Kabira”.

Religious Disputes Over Kabir Das’s Body

Kabir was a very quiet person and loved living a peaceful life. An admirer of non-violence and virtue, Kabir Das spent his entire life in Kashi and died in 1518 in a place called Maghar. Kabir Das highly opposed the ongoing hypocrisy in the name of caste and religion. He was a person who was greatly respected and followed by both Hindus and Muslims. This was one of the reasons why a dispute arose regarding his cremation after his death in both the communities since they wanted to cremate him with respect as per their own rituals. 

However, a pile of flowers was found on top of his body when the sheet covering his mortal body was removed. This was his last message and made people realize that a person should be acceptable like flowers and must have the same sentiment for all religions. Later, both the communities took half of the flowers each and cremated them accordingly.

Famous Dohas by Kabir Das

Behind every literary composition of Kabir Das lies a deep, hidden feeling. With few lines, he used to indicate good or bad aspects of society. This is one of the reasons why the Dohas by Kabir Das still remains one of the main and popular references. On his birth anniversary, let’s look at some of his famous Dohas:

पोथी पढ़ि पढ़ि जग मुआ, पंडित भया न कोय।

ढाई आखर प्रेम का, पढ़े सो पंडित होय॥

Pothi Padhi Padhi Jag Mua, Pandit Bhaya Na Koye।

Dhai Akhar Prem Ka, Padhe So Pandit Hoye॥

Meaning- Kabir admits that even though people attained a place in Heaven after acquiring knowledge, they failed to become well-learned. But if a person can understand the true meaning behind the two and a half letters of “Prem” or “Love”, that native is him/herself the biggest scholar.
