"A weaver by trade but a poet-singer by calling, Kabir lived in fifteenth-century India. His philosophy incorporated various beliefs of both Muslims and Hindus and later became one of the major inspirations behind Sikhism. Like the work of the poet Rumi, Kabir's verse continues to enlighten and entertain readers the world over. Robert Bly has made these incredible poems more accessible than ever to the modern reader." "The power of Kabir's words comes from his passion - and also from his humor. He is at once irreverent toward authority and amazed by divinity. He demands that readers live for themselves. In the tradition of ecstatic poetry, Kabir writes of bodily delights and of choices made by the heart, not the mind."--Jacket.
