BOSTON: A cultural event to commemorate the birth anniversary of Kabir Das, an ancient South Asian mystic and social reformer will take place Sunday, 12 June 2022, at Danehy Park, Cambridge MA.

The Kabir Festival 2022 honors the values propagated by Kabir Das, a 15th century poet in India whose message of humanism, fraternity, love, harmony and equality resonates today in a world that is in many ways much like his. Then as now, great and astonishing changes were taking place, causing anxiety, fear, strife and dislocations.

  1. I feel pleasure to appreciate and encourage SAPAN team for organizing a cultural event on the birth anniversary of
    Kabir Das who was not only a mystic but a bhagat and sufi as well. Such a type of people believe in oneness of God
    and spread love harmony and unanimity among all human beings without any prejudices grudges and tribal instincts. We may follow his teachings to make religious harmony and curtail hatred and enmity among different
    religions faiths and sects. Kudos to Rupal Shah for her nice work in this regard.
