Kabir Das ji used to worship the formless Brahman and according to him God is everywhere and He is present in every creature, creature, animal, that’s why instead of dreaming of heaven, we should keep our behavior on earth only because It’s all here.
Understanding the poignancy of the thoughts of Kabir Das ji, we have prepared some speeches on this subject for you, whose language is very simple and attractive and you will not have any problem in remembering it.

Speech on Kabir Das – 1
Respected Principal Sir, My salutations to the teachers, guests and parents present here. Today I have got a golden opportunity to speak about Sant Kabir Das ji in front of all of you, because I am a Kabir panthi, so I am very happy to get this opportunity and hope that you will definitely like this speech of mine.
In the Bhakti period, where the whole world was absorbed in the devotion of God, there was a person who worshiped the formless Brahman. The surprising thing was that he was born from the womb of a Brahmin, while he was brought up in a Muslim family, in spite of all this, he considered all this as ostentation. We consider every year the full moon of Shukla Paksha of Jyeshtha as Kabirdas Jayanti.
He vehemently and vehemently opposed the pomp of Hindu religion. Not only this, he also called ‘fasting’ among Muslims as pomp and denied any kind of fasting. According to him, how can God be pleased by being hungry.
According to him, God is present within every person, instead of finding him in temples, idols, treat each other well, this shows our devotion. There is no heaven and hell, it is here and it is our behavior that determines everything. No one becomes great by taking birth in any caste or clan, but his deeds are great.
At that time the caste system was at its peak and in such a situation, speaking a word about casteism proved to be very dangerous, in such a situation, without fear of anyone, Kabir Das ji stood by his thoughts and followed his thoughts till his death. Don’t move Due to this many times he was boycotted from the society and he had to face many reproaches. He always supported the sayings of his Guru Shri Ramdas and continued to inspire people for the welfare and change of the society.
Kabir Das ji’s life was very struggling but he became immortal and he is still present among us because of his great ideology. He did not get school education but we find his works in a text like ‘Bijak’, which is written by his disciples. All the couplets and other compositions present in it belong to Kabir Das ji, just collected by his disciples.
Today many reforms have taken place in our society, but there are still some areas which need improvement. And it is not possible until every person in the society takes a pledge to improve it. To bring about change, we have to change ourselves, not others. And in the end, I want to stop my words through this couplet of Kabir Das ji.
Where there is mercy there is religion, where there is greed there is sin.
Where there is anger there is sin, where there is forgiveness there is you.

My salutations to all the elders present here, today I want to speak a few words about Kabir Das ji in front of all of you and hope that I will be successful in conveying his thoughts to you.
Kabir Das ji is one of the priceless gems of Indian history, who, despite not taking school education, wrote his compositions so accurately and in the form of a sarcasm on the society that till date no other like this could happen. Every year the full moon of Shukla Paksha of Jyeshtha month is celebrated as Kabir Das Jayanti.
As we know, he was born from the womb of a Brahmin woman, as a result of a boon, but fearing public shame, his mother abandoned him. They then met a Muslim couple, named Neema and Neeru. He was a weaver by profession. He raised Kabir Das ji well and had his family education, which was his profession. Because he was not very rich, he could not send Kabir ji to school.
Once upon a time when Kabir Das ji used to take him on the steps of Ghat, it was morning and Swami Ramdas ji was going for bath and he did not see Kabir Das ji and accidentally put his feet on him. When he realized this, he started asking for forgiveness from Kabir, and as a result he accepted Kabir ji as his disciple.
Kabir ji was a Hindu by birth and was brought up in a Muslim family, but he strongly opposed the pretense in both these religions. He openly opposed the pretense like idol worship, fasting and fasting. In truth, he was no less than a warrior, who had endured many tortures from the contractors of the society but remained firm in his views.
He believed that God resides in every living being and he is not pleased with any indulgence, sacrifice, but he looks after the heart of his devotees. They do not differentiate from who has offered how much or what caste the person is worshiping. He was a record flame of our society, the glow of which perhaps some elite could not bear.
As vast as the history of India is, such incidents have also happened a lot, under which people of some sections and castes had to bear many tortures. It seems as if God could not bear these tortures and sent one of his representatives to the earth in human form. Because whenever there is excess in the world, God Himself incarnates to destroy the evils from the society. A great human like Kabir is born only once in many decades and this is true because his creations have become immortal and even today we get to hear his couplets and bhajans somewhere. He was a man of great talent.
He also had two children, whom he put in this work and as such took all the responsibility of social service on himself during that period. People were very much influenced by its fanatical answers and couplets and at times they had to be excommunicated from the society. But he was adamant and was engaged in reforming the society throughout his life.
It is believed that death in Kashi leads to salvation, but Kabir ji did not believe it and at the time of his death left Kashi and went to Magahar (the area around Kashi). And he died in Magahar. A saint like Kabir would have got salvation anywhere, but the thing to understand is that by staying in Kashi, can those who commit hundreds of sins get salvation?
Your life is elevated by your actions and thoughts, it cannot be elevated by taking birth in any caste, religion, place. Always do good deeds and do not worry about the results, always keep good thoughts in your mind, so that your human life becomes meaningful.
who worship the truth,
That is what is called God.
And he was Kabir who in that era,
God was shown in every human being.
