Kabir Jayanti is being celebrated all over the country today, Kabir Jayanti is celebrated on the full moon day of Shukla Paksha of the senior month, this time it is on 24th June. Born in Shiva's city Kashi, Saint Kabir Das spent his entire life in the city of Mokshadayini, Varanasi, but he chose Maghar for his death. It may be recalled that Saint Kabir Das passed away in the year 1518. Some says that when Kabir Das breathed his last, people started arguing about his religion.
Hindus said that his mortal remains would be burnt and Muslims said that he would be buried, in the midst of this war Kabir's mortal remains were converted into flowers so that half-hindus and Muslims had been vitricated and that is why There are both Kabir's Samadhi and mazar in Maghar. Kabir Das's couplets, which break conservative ancient practices, still add joy to life, their two have always opened the way for progress and shown the right path to the people.
Kabir Das's dohe:-
•Bura Jo Dekhan Main Chala, Bura Naa Milya Koye Jo Munn Khoja Apnaa, To Mujhse Bura Naa Koye
•Kaal Kare So Aaj Kar, Aaj Kare So Ub Pal Mein Pralaya Hoyegi, Bahuri Karoge Kub
•Aisee Vani Boliye, Mun Ka Aapa Khoye Apna Tan Sheetal Kare, Auran Ko Sukh Hoye
•Dheere Dheere Re Mana, Dheere Sub Kutch Hoye Mali Seenche So Ghara, Ritu Aaye Phal Hoye
•Sayeen Itna Deejiye, Ja Mein Kutumb Samaye Main Bhi Bhookha Na Rahun, Sadhu Na Bhookha Jaye
•Bada Hua To Kya Hua, Jaise Ped Khajoor Panthi Ko Chaya Nahin, Phal Laage Atidoor.
