Study of a greater number of manuscripts containing creations attributed to a particular author may reveal significant variations in their form and not infrequently also in the content. Probably this kind of variation is closely related to strongly performative character of many poems – either authored by the sants themselves or inspired by them and composed by others. In the broad current of a living tradition borne predominantly by oral and performative presentations with a significant degree of improvisation it will be futile to search for the „authentic“ or original version of a particular poem. Rather than looking for „Ur-texts“, the philological and comparativist method should be used to map the dynamic flows, currents, cross- and undercurrents that form a particular tradition. The author illustrates variations in textual (and underlying oral) transmissions by an example of selected pads attributed to Kabīr as extant in the three main collections – the Dādūpanthī Rājasthānī tradition, the Bījak, and Kabīr´s pads in the Ādigranth of the Sikhs.
