“I am not a Hindu, nor am a Muslim I! I am this body, a play of five elements; a drama of the spirit dancing with joy and sorrow.”
This famous quote is made by none other than Kabir Das, a 15th-century Indian mystic poet and saint. He was one of the important members who pioneered the Bhakti Movement in Hinduism.
While his early life began as a Muslim, he was later strongly influenced by a Hindu ascetic, Ramananda. He is famously known for his Dohas or rhymed couplets. Kabir’s verses were also incorporated into Adi Granth, the scripture of Sikhism.
