Fearlessness & Beyond
Kabir was a famous 15th century saint, poet, and mystic. His writings suggested that truth was within anyone who considered all things living and non-living as divine. Kabir’s followers saw his poems and songs as a way to spiritual awakening. With his flair for unraveling profound concepts in simple verses in the common Indian language of Hindi (Braj and Awadhi dialects), his ideas became accessible to everyone, no matter their background.
In Nirbhay Nirgun, Kabir describes the journey of a spiritual seeker, pointing out that getting over fear is the first step towards seeking the ultimate. “Nirbhay Nirgun Gun Re Gaunga,” he says, which means, “I will fearlessly sing the attributes of the one without attributes.”
