Каби́р — средневековый индийский поэт-мистик, поэт-сант, выдающийся реформатор движения бхакти, классик литературы хинди.

В истории религиозной мысли Индии Кабир занимает уникальное место. Для хинду он бхакта-святой, для мусульман — пир, для сикхов — бхагат, для членов ордена кабирпантх, в настоящее время более 1 млн последователей его идей, — аватара, которому сооружены храмы, главный из них «Кабир чаура матх» в Бенаресе. В прогрессивных кругах Индии Кабира признают как поэта-реформатора, открытого врага брахманизма и кастовых различий, института неприкасаемых и всех форм социальной дискриминации, как певца индо-мусульманского единства.

Также гимны Кабира, как авторитетные источники Истины включены в священную книгу сикхов «Адигрантх», или «Гуру Грантх Сахиб», составление которой было завершено в 1604 году при пятом гуру сикхов — Арджуне.

„Are you looking for me?
I am in the next seat.
My shoulder is against yours.
you will not find me in the stupas,
not in Indian shrine rooms,
nor in synagogues,
nor in cathedrals:
not in masses,
nor kirtans,
not in legs winding around your own neck,
nor in eating nothing but vegetables.
When you really look for me,
you will see me instantly —
you will find me in the tiniest house of time.
Kabir says: Student, tell me, what is God?
He is the breath inside the breath.“

„Many have died; you also will die. The drum of death is being beaten. The world has fallen in love with a dream. Only sayings of the wise will remain.“ The Bijak of Kabir

„All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.“

„If you want the truth,
I’ll tell you the truth:
Listen to the secret sound,
the real sound,
which is inside you.“

„The river that flows in you also flows in me.“

„I laugh when I hear that the fish in the water is thirsty.

You don't grasp the fact that what is most alive of all is inside your own house;
and you walk from one holy city to the next with a confused look!

Kabir will tell you the truth: go wherever you like, to Calcutta or Tibet;
if you can't find where your soul is hidden,
for you the world will never be real!“
The Kabir book: Forty-four of the ecstatic poems of Kabir

„... What is God?
He is the breath inside the breath.“

„There is dew
on these poems in the morning,
and at night a cool breeze may rise from them.

In the winter they are blankets, in the summer a place to swim.

I like talking to you like this. Have you moved
a step closer?

Soon we may be

„The guest is inside you, and also inside me;
you know the sprout is hidden inside the seed.
We are all struggling; none of us has gone far.
Let your arrogance go, and look around inside.

The blue sky opens out farther and farther,
the daily sense of failure goes away,
the damage I have done to myself fades,
a million suns come forward with light,
when I sit firmly in that world.

I hear bells ringing that no one has shaken,
inside "love" there is more joy than we know of,
rain pours down, although the sky is clear of clouds,
there are whole rivers of light.
The universe is shot through in all parts by a single sort of love.
How hard it is to feel that joy in all our four bodies!

Those who hope to be reasonable about it fail.
The arrogance of reason has separated us from that love.
With the word "reason" you already feel miles away.“
The Kabir book: Forty-four of the ecstatic poems of Kabir

„I talk to my inner lover, and I say, why such rush?
We sense that there is some sort of spirit that loves
birds and animals and the ants--
perhaps the same one who gave a radiance to you
in your mother's womb.
Is it logical you would be walking around entirely orphaned now?
The truth is you turned away yourself,
and decided to go into the dark alone.
Now you are tangled up in others, and have forgotten
what you once knew,
and that's why everything you do has some weird sense of failure in it.“

„the sun is within me and so is the moon“

„Nindak niyare rakhiye aangan kuti chhawaye;
Bin sabun pani bina nirmal karat subhaye.“

„Listen, my friend. He who loves understands.“

„Slowly slowly O mind...
Everything in own pace happens,
Gardner may water a hundred buckets...
Fruit arrives only in its season.“

„As long as a human being worries about when he will die, and what he has that is his,
all of his works are zero.
When affection for the I-creature and what it owns is dead,
then the work of the Teacher is over.“
The Kabir book: Forty-four of the ecstatic poems of Kabir

„as jolaha ka maram na jana, jinh jag ani pasarinhh tana;
dharti akas dou gad khandaya, chand surya dou nari banaya;
sahastra tar le purani puri, ajahu bine kathin hai duri;
kahai kabir karm se jori, sut kusut bine bhal kori;

No one could understand the secret of this weaver who, coming into existence, spread the warp as the world; He fixed the earth and the sky as the pillars, and he used the sun and the moon as two shuttles; He took thousands of stars and perfected the cloth; but even today he weaves, and the end is difficult to fathom.

Kabir says that the weaver, getting good or bad yarn and connecting karmas with it, weaves beautifully.“
The Bijak of Kabir
