Satguru Kabir Saheb had appeared in 15th century India, a time marked by deep religious tensions. He is believed to have appeared in the form of a baby on a lotus flower in the Lahartaaraa lake of Varaanasi, India on the full moon day of the month of Jyeshta (May/June). To this day, the day of his appearance is still celebrated on the full moon of the Jyeshta month.
Appearing during the Mughal era in India, when religious and cultural conflicts were highly prevalent amongst the different sects and religions of the day. Kabir Saheb had strived to restore balance and peace through his teachings. He taught to the feuding communities, namely the Hindu and Muslim communities, that their love and devotion to their respective deities should be uniting them, rather than separating them. Kabir Saheb believed that both the Hindus and the Muslim community, being lost in doubts, had deviated from the path of spritual pursuit. Spreading his teachings, he was able to restore faith unto the people. His teachings still live on in the form of his devotees who have well preserved them in various sacred texts including the Bijak, the Granthawali, the Anurag Saagar, the Kabir Mansoor and other scriptures.
