Date: 5th June 2020
Every year on “Jyeshta purnima” (as per Hindu calendar), Sahib Kabir Prakat Diwas / Sant Kabir Das Jayanti is celebrated all over the world. This year, “Kabir Prakat Diwas / Sant Kabir Das Jayanti will be celebrated on 5th June 2020.
Most people even today, continue to believe that “Kabir Das” was merely a mystic poet and was a great social reformer. His writings and teachings have indeed greatly influenced the Bhakti movement, and “Kabir Das" is also known as the founder of the “Kabir Panth”. Those who understood his teachings and joined the bhakti movement are known as “Kabir Panthi”. His teachings have been collected as Bijak, Sakhi Granth, Kabir Granthawali, and Kabir Sagar.
It is only since the early 1990s, that by the grace of Jagatguru Tatvadarshi Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj, that the long-forgotten and hidden knowledge/tatvagyaan about the actual Creation process/ Srishti rachna and the real identity of Supreme, that had to be kept under wraps for first 5505 years of Kaliyug, has now unfolded and is being bestowed upon us jeevatmas. It is by virtue of this rare and precious knowledge/ Tatvagyaan coming from the sacred cosmic library, that we have come to know the actual truth about “Kabir Das”. Not only does he grace this World in every Yuga with his divine presence in the role of a Saint, but he is actually the Creator of all souls and the Universe! He is the omnipresent, omnipotent, all-pervading, ever graceful, ever-loving, ever forgiving, Almighty “Supreme God" or Parameshwar. Sant Rampalji Maharaj has proven this amazing, iconoclastic, and myth-busting fact from all the authentic spiritual books - 4 Vedas, 6 Shastras, 18 Upanishads, Gita, Bible, Quran and also Guru Granth Saheb.
When we go through the biography of “Kabir Das”, it does contain some almost unbelievable events, which include his appearance on a lotus flower in Lahartara pond in Kashi (Varanasi), his being fed with milk given by a maiden cow, appearing as a 3 yr old child and making Sant Ramanand ji his Guru on Ganga ghats, taking Ramanad ji's soul to Satlok and bestowing him with true spiritual worship for attaining Moksh, working as a weaver for livelihood yet feeding lakhs of saints for three days in continuation and giving them blankets and gold coins after every meal, raising Kamaal and Kamaali from the dead and many more.
He healed an incurable illness of Sikandar Lodhi, who later became a devotee of “Kabir Das”. Though the Badshah of Delhi in his ego, earlier slashed the neck of Kabir ji's Guru Ramanand ji due to a tiff. Kabir ji later restored Ramanand ji back to life, to Sikander Lodhi's utter disbelief, and he had since then understood the all-pervading power of “Kabir Das” as “Allah-o-Akbar”. But it was his Spiritual Guru, “Sheikh Taqi” who was jealous of “Kabir Das” and kept giving him various impossible challenges which included reviving a slaughtered dead cow, a dead boy (Kamal) and also Sheikh Taqi's own dead daughter (Kamali), and many more. Kabir ji surpassed all of Sheikh Taqi's challenges which on their own, clearly prove that he was Supreme God/ Allah-o-Akbar, but Sheikh Taqi himself never believed the evidence and kept demeaning Kabir ji at all times. Even after many challenges thrown at “Kabir Saheb”, he remaining unvanquished and to the displeasure of Sheikh Taqi, he on the contrary gained many Hindu as well as Muslim devotees. Sheikh Taqi later did suffer a tragic end due to all his animosity.
Through his teachings, Kabir ji spread the word that humanity is bigger than religion and that one can never attain salvation/ Moksh by baseless worship which had no roots in scriptures. Kabir ji always reiterated that there was no need to give up home for attaining salvation. Genuine illustrations through his poetry/dohas on orthodox and wrong worship performed by Hindus and Muslims made a huge impact on people's minds and he had almost 64 lakh followers from both communities.
He bestowed the right path of worship on his steadfast devotees (Sant Ravi Das Ji, Meera Bai and Guru Nanak Dev Ji etc), which is also mentioned in his books Bijak, Sakhi Granth, Kabir Granthawali and Kabir Sagar. Books with collections of Kabir Saheb's teachings are also treated as “Suksham Ved” as they contain complete spiritual knowledge about the actual situation of Prithvi lok and how we can be out of the clutches of Kaal and Maya. At the age of 120 years “Kabir Saheb” went back to Satlok from Maghar, Uttar Pradesh in the visible presence of thousands of his devotees who saw him go. This is again a fact which many still disbelieve. From the many leelas/ Divine spectacle of “Kabir Saheb” it is apparent that he is “Supreme God”.
We will now authenticate the many spectacles of "Kabir Saheb" with the definition and indications of the presence of "Supreme God" given in holy scriptures.
“Kabir Saheb ji” appears in every yuga by different names, as mentioned in Kabir Sagar:
In this Kaliyuga, by diminishing his resplendent Godly form which is only seen in Satlok, he appeared as a baby on a lotus flower in Brahma Muhurta (early morning) in Jyeshta month, shukla poornamasi, Vikram Samvat 1455 (AD 1398), in the “Lahartara pond” in Kashi (Varanasi), Uttar Pradesh, India. When He appeared, sage “Ashtanand Ji”, a disciple of Swami Ramanand Ji, was meditating there and saw a sudden flash of bright light. Kabir ji was later taken home by a childless couple, Neeru and Neema. It is apparent from this citing that “Kabir Saheb” doesn't take birth from a mother's womb. He travels directly from "Satlok" (Eternal place) and instantly appears on Earth. He comes in this similar way in all the four Yugas, appearing on a lotus flower as a child, and a childless couple carries him home, raising him as their own child.
Another of his Leela is appearing as a Jinda Mahatma, inspiring pious souls towards bhakti and disappearing. Many such incidences occurred with Dharamdas, Abrahim Sultan Adham, and many others, which are documented in Kabir Sagar.
Rigveda Mandal 9 Sukta 96 Mantra 17 to 20 clearly explain that the Supreme God Kabir Dev (Kabir Parmeshwar) appears by acquiring the form of a child and delivers His pure spiritual knowledge i.e. Tatvagyan to his followers through (Kavirgirbhih) Kabir Vani.
“Kabir Saheb” doesn't take birth from a Mother's womb. “Kabir Saheb” had chosen Neeru and Neema, a childless couple who were weavers as his parents, as they were two souls who had to attain Moksh in this lifetime. They brought “Kabir Saheb” from “Lahartara pond” to their home and served him in child form. Neeru and Neema were both Brahmins earlier, by the name Gauri Shankar and Saraswati. Both had been forcibly converted into Muslim religion as a result of the conspiracy of wicked and jealous Brahmins at that time.
Everyone in Kashi without any prejudices came to see this rare spectacle and were amazed to see the beautiful and radiant face of Kabir Saheb. No one had ever seen such an attractive child. But for more than 25 days, when Kabir Saheb didn't eat anything, it got Neeru and Neema worried. They then prayed to “Lord Shiva” to help them, as they were devotees of Shiva. On a thought inspiration received from Kabir ji, Shiva acquired the form of a sage and appeared before Neeru and Neema. “Kabir Saheb” then communicated with Shiv ji and told him to ask Neeru to bring a maiden cow. Then, as instructed by Kabir Saheb, Shivji patted on the cow and the cow instantly started giving milk. That pure milk descending from Satlok was consumed by Kabir Saheb.
Vedas talk about this property of God, that God drinks milk from maiden cows in Rigved Mandal 9 Sukt 1 Mantra 9.
Hindu Pandit and Muslim Qazis came for Naamkaran of Kabir Saheb but Kazis said that we will name the boy by Muslim law, now the couple has become Muslims. Saying this, the chief Qazi of the Qazis opened the Quran Sharif book on a random page. The first line on that page had the name written as "Kabiran". The Qazi thought that the name "Kabir" had an impactful meaning and naming Kabir as the child of this small caste (julaha or weaver) will not be in good stead. The Qazis then opened the Quran Sharif, on other pages, but there too found the letters Kabir. Utterly surprised, Qazis inspected the entire Quran, and each word in the Quran Sharif brought by them had turned into Kabir-Kabir-Kabir-Kabir. Qazi grumbled that the child changed their Quran Sharif by some shoddy magic. Then Kabir Saheb, still a newborn said to the Qazi, "O Qazi of Kashi. I am Kabir Allah i.e. Allah-o-Akbar. Keep my name as "Kabir". The Qazis picked the Quran with them and ran away from there. His parents, henceforth, continued to call him Kabir.
When Qazi comes to the home of Neeru and Neema to perform the ritual of ‘Sunnah’. Then Kabir Parmeshwar showed them many penises, and they fearfully returned without performing any ritual. The account of this divine spectacle by “Kabir Saheb” is also mentioned in pious Kabir Sagar.
The importance of a Tatvadarshi Guru is extremely significant on the path of salvation, which Kabir Saheb has told in many of his preachings. Therefore, when the right time came, “Kabir Saheb” acquired Swami Ramanand Ji as his religious guru, with whom Kabir ji was connected even in earlier births in Satyuga and Treta yuga. At first, Ramanand Ji did not accept Kabir Saheb as “Supreme God”, then “Kabir Saheb” told him about the solution to his problem by untying and reknotting the necklace of his favored deity Lord Vishnu Ji, while he was worshipping inside his house and only in his mind. Swami Ramanand Ji then realized “Kabir Saheb” as Supreme, and only then “Kabir Saheb” explained to him about the true spiritual knowledge/tatvagyaan and took him to his eternal world ‘Satlok’. He made him familiar with the situation of three gods Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva, the upper lokas like Heaven, Hell, Kaal loka, etc. At the age of only five years, Kabir Saheb acquired Swami Ramanand Ji as his spiritual Guru. This leela/spectacle was only for the people of the world. In reality, though, Kabir Sahib was the Guru of Ramanand Ji.
It is written in Vedas Supreme God never takes birth or dies. Kabir Saheb appeared on earth to bestow the jeevatmas in the clutches of Kaal with true spiritual worship, showed the method of simple living in this “Mrityulok” and also motivate us to give up wrong spiritual practices and attain Moksh. Kabir Saheb came to Maghar from Kashi to remove a myth spread by Pandits of that era, stating that ones who die in Kashi go to heaven and ones dying in Maghar go to hell, or are reborn in yoni of a donkey. Kabir Saheb stated that a true worshipper may die anywhere, and he will still attain Moksh. All his disciples gathered in Maghar, both Hindu and Muslim. The Muslim ruler “Bijli Khan Pathan” and Hindu King “Vir Singh Baghel” were also amongst them. Both were all set, even for war, to perform the last rites for the body of “Kabir Saheb”. Each wanted to perform the last rites of their dear Guru, according to their own religious ways. “Kabir Saheb” strictly told them not to fight for his body, rather learn to live peacefully. A bed sheet was then laid on the ground on which Kabir Saheb rested, covering himself up with another bed sheet. After some time, Kabir Saheb was seen by many surprised spectators, elevating towards the skies, and made an “Akash-Vani” saying that he was going back to ‘Satlok’ from where he came, in his own body. More surprise awaited the followers when no dead body was found under the sheet, instead only fragrant flowers in the place. As Kabir Sahib had ordered Hindus and Muslims not to fight and live in harmony, both Hindu and Muslim followers distributed those flowers among themselves and made a monument side by side which can still be witnessed in Maghar, Uttar Pradesh. This is how Kabir Saheb while averting a war-like situation, left from Maghar to ‘Satlok’ in his own body.
Kabir Saheb has said, “Ved kateb jhoothe na bhai, jhoothe hain so samjhe naahin” which means, all Holy texts like Ved and Quran, etc are totally true but without the true Guru, no one can understand the hidden knowledge in them. It is illustrated in all his books Bijak, Sakhi Granth, Kabir Granthawali, and Kabir Sagar that he is “Supreme God” and when we match his whole life and evidence with Vedas, Quran, and Bible, etc, one can easily conclude that he is “Supreme God”.
Atharva Ved, Kaand no. 4 Anuvaak no.1 Mantra no. 7 says that YaH – atharvanm' - Pitram' - Devbandhum' - Brahspatim' - namsa – av – ch –gachchhaat' - tvam' - vishwesham' - janita – yatha – saH – KavirdevH – na – dabhaayat' – swadhavan. In this Mantra, it has been made clear that the name of that God, who has brought all Creation to life, is KavirDev (God Kabir).
Rig Ved, Mandal 9, Sukt 96, Mantra 18 says Rishimna ya rishikrit' swarshaH sahastraneethH padviH kavinam' Trteeyam' dhaam mahishH sisha sant' somH viraajmanu rajti stup
This mantra says that the supreme God lives in eternal place called "Trteeyam' dhaam" which is Satlok. Not in heaven, Vishnu Lok, Shiv Lok or Brahma Lok.
Yajurveda Adhyay 5, Mantra 1 says that God is in form and has a human-like form. “Agne TanuH Asi | Vishnve Tva Somasya Tanur' Asi ||
Yajurveda Adhyay 8 Mantra 13 says God Kabir forgives the sins of his worshipper and forgives the most heinous sins. God Kabir can forgive all the sins done in the past or done currently.
Yajurved Chapter 5 mantra 32 describes God Kabir as the giver of Supreme Peace / Happiness. He can destroy all the sins and his name is KavirDev (God Kabir). He is also the liberator of pious jeevatmas from all shackles.
Yajurved Adhyay 19 Mantra 25, 26 says that a True Guru will elaborate upon incomplete knowledge of the Vedas and give true Gyan. Presently he is Tatvadarshi Saint Rampal Ji or we can simply say Kabir Saheb in the form of Sant Rampal Ji, as he has been bestowed with similar powers by the Supreme. ***Sam Ved Mantra no. 822 Utarchik Adhyay 3 Khand no. 5 Shlok no. 8 clarified that Supreme God Kavir i.e. Kabir manifesting in the form of a Guru in the human body, to give jaap of his three naams to God-loving souls. Presently that Guru is Sant Rampal Ji.
Shri Guru Granth Sahib; Page no. 721, Mehla 1, Raag Tilang Nanak ji has given evidence of universe creation that ‘Hakka Kabir’ means ‘Sat (eternal) Kabir’, ‘karim’ means ‘kind’, ‘Parvardigaar’ means ‘Nurturer of all.
Saint Dadu Ji, who found refuge in the lotus-feet of Kabir Saheb as his Guru, gives a true account of Kabir Saheb being the creator of the Universe.
Jin moku nij naam diya, soi satguru hamaar | Dadu doosra koi nahin, Kabir sirjanhaar ||
Sant Garib Das ji gives an account that Kabir Saheb is Creator of the universe, and is the Supreme.
Garib, anant koti brahmand ka, ek rati nahin bhaar | Satguru Purush Kabir hain, kul ke sirjan haar ||
Quran Sharif Surat Al Furqan 25:59 makes evident that the Most Merciful [Kabir] created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them, in six days and then rested Himself on his Throne.
Quran Sharif Surat Al Furqan Verse 25:59: - Va tavakkal' alal'- harulliji la yamutu va sabbih' bihm'dihi va kafaa bihi bijunoobi ibadihi Khabira (Kabira) means Oh Prophet! Have faith in that God Kabir, who met you in the form of a Jinda Saint. He never dies, that is lives forever.
Iyov 36:5 - Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB) -“See, El is Kabir, and despiseth, not any; He is kabir in ko’ach lev (strength of understanding). Means God is Kabir, he despises no one, that is, bestows everyone with his grace. He is Kabir and firm in his purpose.
Holy Bible - Genesis - Sixth Day of Creation: 1:26 - said, Lord Kabir makes human beings in his own resemblance and he has humans power over all the fish, the birds, all animals domestic and wild, large and small.
The Soul is always seeking it's source, it's Creator, when in its true, natural, and unbridled flow. Here in Kaal loka, souls are hardly ever in their natural state. Under the strong influence of the Triguni Maya, we souls simply running amok in 84 lakh yonis, confused, deranged, and thirsting the Eternal connection, which seems impossible to find. The ONLY time the soul can reach back to the origins is when it gets a "human life" and can reconnect through a Satguru to the eternal peace-giving Supreme. Kaal and his Mayajaal are always on the hunt to snatch the soul away from its source and disconnect it from the power source of Supreme, thus succeed in keeping us souls trapped in this rabbit-hole life. Once the connection is lost with Supreme, we are the same state as a bride losing her beloved husband on the day of her marriage. The more the soul gets trapped with Kaal, the more the soul loses consciousness, the more it moves away from the Supreme, the more it suffers and remains in agony.
The Supreme is as agonized without us, as we are without him, as we fail to recognize him while we have the chance in human form, and Kaal would rather not give us human lives and keep us in his jail. The precondition Supreme can be with us and save us, is that we need to realize the one who's trapping us and one who's saving us. Unfortunately, influenced by Triguni Maya, we are unable to shed the rose-tinted glasses Kaal has made us wear. Due to this, we keep running towards the Mayajaal, but not away from it. We become like moths to the flame, losing our lives innumerable times yet not realizing that the flame is not the real source of Eternal peace.
Kabir Saheb is here, waiting with open arms, awaiting the return of each of us souls so that he can take us back to Amarlok, the Eternal place of everlasting joy and peace. All we need to do is REALISE.
Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj is the only true and complete Saint on this whole Earth right now, rather only one in all 21 lokas of Kaal, who can show us the way back to our origins, in the lotus feet of Kabir Saheb. Only by taking the right bhakti/worship path, as shown by Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj, can a person attain complete salvation/ Poorn Moksh - no more diseases, birthing and dying, no suffering old age, back to forever joy.
We urge you to listen to the Satsang of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj on Sadhana Channel from 7:30 PM to 8:30 PM every day and read the book “Gyan Ganga” and Jeene Ki Raah”, which are the holy sources of complete knowledge/Tavagyaan about Kabir Saheb, the actual state of the World we are living in, and how to take the journey back to Eternal peace.
On this Kabir Prakat Divas, let us pledge to shed the rose-tinted glasses of Kaal and Maya and pledge to find our way back to the peaceful and safe refuge of our all-forgiving, all-loving Supreme Creator, Kabir Saheb. He is the one Supreme, our savior, mother, father, badhu, sakha, one Parameshwar. Let us arise and awaken to our true purpose as human beings and begin our journey towards Moksh!
