From the Jacket

Kabir and the Kabir Panth gives in brief the details of Sant Kabir's life, his teachings, his Sakhis and the sectarian organization of Kabir Panth, its formation, growth, schism, rituals and teachings.

Among the saints of India, Kabir occupies pre-eminent position; for he is a pioneer among those who brought about an understanding and amity between the adherents of Hinduism and Islam.

The author has tried to avoid dogmatising on questions that call for fuller investigation; but we have at any rate in the teaching of Kabir an attempt to break down the barriers that separate Hindu from Muhammadans, and we have probably in the Kabir Panth a religious system that owes something to Hindu, Muhammadans and Christian influences. His teachings transcend all barriers. Even a casual glance at his Sakhis is enough to attest to the universality of his message.

It is hoped that this study will increase the interest already felt by many in the various religious sects that have been called into existence in India through the efforts of distinguished personages.
