Stamp Information : Those who searched for him, found him, even in the depth of seas: I also out to seek Him, but kept sitting foolishly on the bank. Kabir: A mystic saint of the 15th century. His poetry and his teachings represent a synthesis of the Hindu and Muslim thought. He condemned bigotry and religious hypocrisy and believed in simple devotion and non-violence.
