Description

Songs of Kabîr

tr. by Rabindranath Tagore

The 15th-century poet Kabir created timeless works of enlightenment that combine the philosophies of Sufism, Hinduism, and the Kabbala. Expressed in imagery drawn from common life and the universal experience, Kabir's poems possess an simplicity and cover a wide emotional range. Features 100 songs translated by Rabindranath Tagore.

The poet Kabîr, a selection from whose songs is here for the first time offered to English readers, is one of the most interesting personalities in the history of Indian mysticism. Born in or near Benares, of Mohammedan parents, and probably about the year 1440, be became in early life a disciple of the celebrated Hindu ascetic Râmânanda. Râmânanda had brought to Northern India the religious revival which Râmânuja, the great twelfth-century reformer of Brâhmanism, had initiated in the South. This revival was in part a reaction against the increasing formalism of the orthodox cult, in part an assertion of the demands of the heart as against the intense intellectualism of the Vedânta philosophy, the exaggerated monism which that philosophy proclaimed. It took in Râmânuja's preaching the form of an ardent personal devotion to the God Vishnu, as representing the personal aspect of the Divine Nature: that mystical "religion of love" which everywhere makes its appearance at a certain level of spiritual culture, and which creeds and philosophies are powerless to kill.

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.
