History And Importance Of Kabir Jayanti 2022
Saint Kabirdas revered as a saint by both Hindu and Islamic faiths.
Kabirdas’ poems said to be uplifting and meaningful. Even today, the birth and death dates of Kabirdas are uncertain.
According to legend, a Muslim weaver discovered infant Kabirdas near the banks of a river. However, it believed that he was born in Varanasi in 1440. He passed away at Maghar.
Kabirdas fought against the concept that dying in Varanasi leads to salvation while dying in Maghar leads to torment.
निंदक नियेरे राखिये, आँगन कुटी छावायें ।
बिन पानी साबुन बिना, निर्मल करे सुहाए ।
According to folklore, when Sant Kabirdas died, both the Hindu and Muslim communities struggled to have his remains cremated in accordance with their own traditions and beliefs. A voiceover asked them to pull the cloth from the dead body while they were fighting.
When the cover raised,spectators noticed two flowers instead of Kabirdas’ body.
As a result, the people of Maghar built a tomb and a samadhi sthal for Kabirdas.
Sant KabirDas’ Muslim and Hindu devotees gather on this day to recite his couplets and sing Kabir bhajans.
Satsangs, or spiritual gatherings,also held at various locations across Kashi.
The Shobhayatra, or procession devoted to Saint Kabir, celebrated with zeal in various regions.
