These poems by the medieval Indian saint poet Kabir (1440-1518), one of the distinguished makes of Indian religions poetry, attracted Tagore for their mystical depth, inner devotion, love for all and unity of religions in their essence. Translated by Tagore and first published in London (1914), these poems convey the catholic spirit of universal brotherhood and the nirguna concept of godhead. For a long time this was the only book on Kabir available in the West. It was widely read and retranslated into French.
