The word "Kabir" is equally well-known in India and in the Middle East, although in each case the word means different things (in many areas it is used as a proper name). From Arabic it means "great" or "the Most High." It is usually attached to the name of a great teacher, as "Sri" is in India. Esoterically, it refers to the Divine Calf, the child of the Divine Mother (who is symbolized by a cow in India, Greece, etc.) The word is related to the ancient and mysterious Cabeiri of the Greek mysteries.

Kabir is also the name of an Indian religious leader who pioneered a religious movement that combined elements of Islam and Hinduism and is considered the precursor of Sikhism.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Tremendous is the effort and the vigilance that is needed from second to second, from moment to moment, in order to not fall into illusions. One minute of unawareness is enough for the mind to be already dreaming about something else, distracting it from the job or deed that we are living at the moment."
