He accepted all the religions and created several songs and poems which expressed the prominence of the oneness of God.
He had the ability to intertwine his straightforward philosophical thoughts into his poems or Dohas, which were easily understood by a common man. His poems are best known for inspiring discourses and thought provoking content. Many people used to get attracted to Sant Kabir and listen to his Dohas and songs in public places.

Sant Kabir used to believe in humbleness and in order to exemplify this he would give his followers an example of flowing water by stating that water always flows in a downward direction and never flows in upward direction. He was always in the favor of politeness and kindness. There are about hundred bhajans of Sant Kabir in Kabir Granth.
Sant Kabir Jayanti is celebrated all across India as the birth of a great saint. During this auspicious occasion several satsangs, get- together and meetings are organized where devotees recite the famous Doha’s or poems of Sant Kabir.
