Kabir Speaks

Sant Kabir was a great mystic and poet of the Bhakti era in India. His dohas (couplets) reverberated the consciousness of both the Hindu and Muslim populace alike, and helped in mitigating the superstitions and hypocrisies extant in the society during the time of Sant Kabir. Through his devotion-inspiring dohas, this secular poet rejuvenated the dormant spirituality of the people of his time.
This unique book, a compilation of 300 original dohas of Sant Kabãr that has been translated into English with a perfect rhyme and an erudite provision of elucidation, following each couplet, addresses the varied aspects of human life and behaviour, and poses challenges to the established belief and social systems of his time.
By interpreting these rhyming dohas, which are permeated with devotion, surrender, love, good conduct and satsang, while reminding people of good social behaviour, charity, vision, control on lust, among many core aspects of life, the author makes a sincere effort to give out the message of Kabir to every reader, deciphering it in simple English. This enables the new generation to understand, grasp and imbibe social, ethical and spiritual values, and empower themselves to face many challenges that may circumvent them in their day-to-day life.
The most outstanding feature of the book is that the author painstakingly tried to bring out the rhyme in translation of both the lines of each couplet.
