Sant Kabir (Saint Kabir) is the spiritual, religious and the mystic saint of India who lived in 14th and 15th century and who still lives in the hearts of his devotees who follow his teachings embodied in his poems and dohas (couplets or the two liner verses). Sant Kabir Jayanti is celebrated on the day of Jyeshtha Purnima (full moon day of Hindu Jyeshtha month corresponding to the months of May-June of Gregorian calendar). Jayanti means birth anniversary and thus Sant Kabir Jayanti is celebrated with great fervour by the devotees and followers of Saint Kabir.
