Lahore Film and Literary Club (LFLC) invites you to the next meeting of its bi-monthly Punjabi Literary Circle (PLC).

 

This meeting will focus on the poetry and philosophy of Kabir Das. Copies of selected portions of his poetry will be available for everyone. Zubair Ahmad will conduct the session.

 

Saint Kabir Das is widely acknowledged as one of the great personality of the Bhakti movement in North India and is considered a pioneer of Bhakti along with Ravidas, Farid, and Namdev. He is one of the medieval Indian saints of Bhakti and Sufi movement whose compositions figure in Sikh Scripture, the Guru Granth Sahib. From among all of them, Kabir's contribution is the largest.

 

Kabir through his couplets not only reformed the mindset of common villagers and low caste people but give them self confidence to question Brahmins. Because of open condemnation of established and popular religions, Kabir became an object of the wrath of both Hindus and Muslims.[1]

 

 

The sessions have been designed to allow people with little knowledge of Punjabi to understand the poetry and participate in the discussion.

 

Date: 4 February 2010 (Thursday)

Time: 5:00–6:30

 

Venue: South Asian Media Centre
