Read from April 22 to 25, 2011 — I own a copy

I stumbled upon this copy as a free book for the kindle. I could not have stumbled upon it at a better time. A young man very close to my son had just taken his life a couple of days prior to me reading this. The young man was a beautiful reckless spirit who had a deep love for music. He was a talented musician and his voice will live on in his recordings. The Songs of Kabir helped me to not dwell on my tears and stopped me from internalizing and twisting the events of the week into something personal. With the help of the lyrical prose of Kabir, I was able to take each moment for what it was. Kabir helped me hear the music and the spirit that resides within each note. This book was truly a case of the guru finding the seeker when the seeker needed the guru most. I'm not sure if this is the greatest collection of Kabir but it was the greatest collection at the time...not the greatest book perhaps, but the greatest book at the time for certain.

I look forward to stumbling upon more of Kabir's works.
