Kabir lived in India in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. He was a teacher,
primarily, and a mystic poet. His teachings were a blend of orthodox Islam, Sufism,
and bhakti Hinduism. Bhakti can be translated as "passionate devotion"
or "perfect love". His poetry was used to reinforce his teachings.
There's a moon in my body...
Are you looking for me?
What is seen is not the truth
Without the Beloved...
When shall I see you again...?
