Jaipur to organize Sufi music and Kabir Vani event
A Sufi music and Kabir poetry recitation event "Kahat Kabir" is going to be organized on April 2 at the auditorium of Mahavira School, C-Scheme, Jaipur, in the memory of Ratna and Shri Krishna Daga.

Noted musicians and singers Shruti Vishavanath, Vedant Bharwdaj and Shrutender Katgade will perform at the event.

Jaipur has a sizable number of the followers of Satguru Kabir Panth encompassing a wide spectrum of beliefs, traditions and practices based on the teachings of Kabir.

The followers of the Panth consist of people from Hindu, Buddhist and Jain ancestry who subscribe for the spiritual path of Sant Kabir. However, they believe in simplicity and their events are often low-key and meant for serious adherents.

It is said that Sant Kabir's lyrics and poetry have flourished for more than 600 years producing music both in classical and regional styles. Thousands of couplets (dohas) and poems are attributed to him. Kabir strove to create a spirit of harmony between the Hindus and Muslims.

He worked for social reforms and spiritualism by leading the life of a pious householder and used to earn his livelihood by weaving clothes.

Kabirpanthis believe that idolatry is mockery and no visible object in this world should be worshiped as well as one should not believe in charms, amulets and superstitions for good luck.

They consider humility and silence as great virtues, while gossip, slander, lies, stealing; anger, envy, hypocrisy, pride and cursing are taken as vices or enemies of Salvation of Mukti.
