Saint Poet Kabir was illiterate by choice. He was of the firm view that if one realises the value of the two letters of the alphabet R and M which make the name of Shri Rama there was no need to bother about the rest of the fifty-four alphabets which might as well be washed down the river as being of no value.
But Kabir also emphasised that the true value of Shri Rama should be realised which will help man to realise the intrinsic value of God and ingrain true and deep love for the Lord. And Kabir acted accordingly as he has shown in his songs and maxims which flowed from his lips in thousands. The maxims selected for this book through small in number being 160 in all show how deep and broad were his realisation.
