    AnnotationThe encyclopedic entry describes Kabīr, without doubt the most widely known and revered North Indian spiritual thinker and mystic (sant) of the medieval period, as reflected in the so called bhagat bānī, collection of songs and sayings of non-Sikh sants in the Sikh scripture Gurū Granth. Dated to 1580s, this textual corpus includes the oldest extant versions of poems attributed to Kabīr and invites comparisons with other strands of Kabīrian scriptural and oral traditions of North India. His thoughts, embodied in poems, songs, and short epigrammatic couplets, often sound as radical and unsettling to the present-day listener, or reader, as they did to his contemporaries
