HIS BODY TRANSFORMED INTO A GREAT LOTUS FLOWER
Stopped at Raxaul, on the Nepal frontier, Baba and the men were refused permission to cross the border....
Giving up the idea of a journey to Nepal, Baba led the men to
visit the tomb of Kabir at Maghar instead, remaining there for two
days. The renowned poet and Perfect Master Kabir, who embodied a
mixture of Hindu and Muslim qualities, has two shrines in Maghar. It
is said that when Kabir died his body transformed into a great lotus
flower, which was cut in half and divided among his Muslim and Hindu
disciples, thus he has two tombs one tomb where Hindus worship
and another where Muslims pay homage. Each following is of the
opinion that theirs is the real grave. Baba paid respects to both places.
