Sant Kabir grew up in a Muslim family, who found him as an abandoned baby under the tree. Some believe that he was sent by God to earth for a purpose. Sant Kabir used to live in Kashi (Varanasi) and was one of the greatest devotees of Lord Rama. He preached universal brotherhood and believed that there is one God. He accepted all the religions and created several songs and poems which expressed the prominence of the oneness of God.
He had the ability to intertwine his straightforward philosophical thoughts into his poems or Dohas, which were easily understood by a common man. His poems are best known for inspiring discourses and thought provoking content. Many people used to get attracted to Sant Kabir and listen to his Dohas and songs in public places.
