Who Are Kabir Panthis?

Recommended Posts

"Who are the kabir panthis? What was bhagat kabir ji's life about are there are more saloks I think of his which are not incorporated into bani what was Guru Nanak's relation to bhagat kabir was he the foundation for gurmat. Is Bhagat Kabir attributable to being a sufi saint or a bhagati hindu saint?"

Kabir Panth is the religion of the followers of Bhagat Kabir. Kabir Jis baani is contained in 3 granths outside of Aad Guru - Anuraag Saager, Maan Sarowar and Bijak.

Kabir Ji, as were Guru Nanak Dev Ji, is Hindu, is Muslim, is both and is neither - it depends on your understanding/outlook/avastha.

There are still a number of Kabir Panthis in Punjab (as well as East India) and there are a number of temples and melas which exist in Bhagat Kabir Jis memory.

From what I remember, in the Kabir Panthi tradition, it says that Kabir Ji met and guided/influenced Guru Nanak Dev Ji, in some areas of our tradition, it's the other way around. In Bhai Gurdas Jis vaaran, it cleary indicates Swami Parmanand was Kabir Jis Guru.
