Kabir’s Philosophy

Kabir‘s assumption was based on his experience which percolated from his long association with society, which is sometimes referred to as Kabir‘s philosophy of life. His philosophical insight depended much on what internalized from his own realization of the world. He had no well doctrinated philosophy because he had neither formal education nor did attend any specific school of thoughts. Through and through, he tried to safeguard the national integrity by establishing solidarity and coordination among the inmates of society who were so far said to have belonged to different cults and creeds.

According to Kabir Atma and Parramatta are inseparably one. Atma resides in human body and Parmatma is God who is variously known by people of different faiths. Since, Atma of every being originates from Parramatta, everyone is the child of God and he is the Father. As per this equation we are one and belong to the same family.

Thus Kabir discourages the manmade compartment which tends to desecrate the divine scheme of Nature and pushes the world into the precipice of annihilation. Kabir futher guards us against the far reaching influence of Maya which may prevail upon us with its bewildering spell whereby one is completely disillusioned and fails to differentiate between the wrong and right.

If we wade through the thick texture of Kabir‘s poetry, we do realize that his poems are relevant in modern contexts, have wider spectrum and need to be re-examined, evaluated and discussed in the light of recent critical theories.
