Many saints and sages, brave and great parsonages, have born at different intervals of time on the holy land of India. Their austerity and practice of spirituality, their selfless service, love and sacrifice, Purushartha and period Sadguru Kabir Saheb took incarnation in the form of a heavenly being, and showed the right path to those lost in the darkness of ignorance. He hammered the society which subscribed to the feelings of discrimination between high caste and low caste, he hammered those who had discriminatory behaviour toward untouchables, and he sowed the seeds of equality in the hearts of every human being.
He taught the people to forsake their pride of caste and creed, and wealth and family status, and follow the path of virtues and good conduct. He very strongly and fearlessly professed his views and negated widespread fanaticism, blind faith, false beliefs in vows to make offerings to deities after fulfillment of desires, sanctimony and evil practices. He trumpeted his idea of religious revolution gave sermons to everyone of pure consciousness and the eternal truth of self-realization and gave a resonant voice to religion of humanity.
FROM THE PREFACE BY THE AUTHOR
These nectarous Saakhis of Kabir Saheb are in thousands in numbers in Saakhi Grantha classified in various chapters; and I have selected 1008 Saakhis out of these and put them in 35 chapters. And in order to present a correct picture, I have attempted to submit my own interpretations in the form of a brief prefaces in the beginning of each chapter: I hope and do believe that this will not only help our respectable readers understand these chapters, rather they will relish reading them.
