About Book

Book Description
1915. The poet Kabir is one of the most interesting personalities in the history of Indian mysticism. A great religious reformer, the founder of a sect to which nearly a million northern Hindus still belong, it is yet supremely as a mystical poet that Kabir lives for us. His wonderful songs survive; the spontaneous expressions of his vision and his love; and it is by these, not by the didactic teachings associated with his name, that he makes his immortal appeal to the heart. In these poems a wide range of mystical emotion is brought into play expressed in homely metaphors and religious symbols drawn from Hindu and Mohammedan belief.

The river and its waves are one surf: where is the difference between the river and its waves? When the wave rises, it is the water; and when it falls, it is the same water again. Tell me, Sir, where is the distinction?

About the Author
Rabindranath Tagore, the much loved Indian poet and philosopher, won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1913. Two years later this translation of the Songs of Kabir was published and introduced these mystical poems to the world outside of India. Now, for the first time, Andrew Harvey, one of the leading spirituality writers of our time - and a renowned translator of mystical texts - has written an introduction that gives a contemporary context to the words of Kabir.
