Kabir was a 15th-century Indian mystic poet and saint, whose writings contributed to Hinduism's Bhakti movement and his verses are found in Sikh's scripture Adi Granth.

Kabir was born into a Muslim family of weavers in the Indian city of Benares. Yet his open mind and spiritual curiosity meant he was profoundly influenced by his teacher Ramananda who introduced him to the inner path of enlightenment. Kabir immersed himself in meditation, devotion and contemplation. In his poetry he weaves his inner journey and colours himself in the hue of the lord. His verses are often challenging to the reader, alerting one to the difference between the illusionary world and the reality of Truth, urging one to awaken and laughing at the curiosities of attachment and delusion.
