    Kabir the poet whose poems are so much loved and interpreted for human awakening with perfection and good qualities and where discrimination is nil. Kabir's world of abode of the beloved is clearly written in this poem where there is no happiness or unhappiness, truth or untruth and such variations and divisions of qualities of descriptions which is the finality is liberation the ultimate goal of human birth. But unfortunately the world is not going well and not in the correct path of salvation opting for the kindness, and compassion but going through wrongful means for accumulation of wealth in place of perfect knowledge. As long as human beings are in inquisitive search of perfection there is relevance to the lines and ways given by the enlightened poet Kabirdas. (Report) Reply
