Bani of Bhagat Kabir Ji From Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji

1. Praise of the Brahma: (SGGS Page 1368)

 Kabir, if I make the seven oceans my ink, make the entire vegetation my pen, and make the earth my paper, even then, I can write not God's praises. 

2. World Creation: (SGGS Page 1349)

Kabir Ji considers the creation of this world from Ek Onkar i.e. from one light.

Firstly, God created light and then, by His Omnipotence, made all the mortals. 

3. Mortal Soul: (SGGS Page 325

In spiritual ignorance, one can never sleep in peace. The king and the pauper both weeps alike.

4. Salvation: (SGGS Page 1367)

 When a living being gets rid of the worldly bindings and frees himself from the clutches of Maya, he attains a high spiritual state. Upon reaching this state, his mind becomes clear and the difference of God and Soul is erased. This state only is deemed to attain.   

Kabir, my mind has become immaculate like the Gange’s water. The Lord follows me saying “Kabir, O my Kabir”.
