Avtar v/s Prakat Diwas: Dear readers, the basic identification of the Almighty Supreme God is the way by which He comes down from His heavenly abode to meet His pious souls here. And that is certainly the reason why Kabir Saheb is considered as the Almighty Supreme Power as He doesn’t take an Avatar. Kabir Prakat Diwas is observed annually. Let us understand this concept with great detail.
Avtar v/s Prakat Diwas: Who is an Avatar?
Demigods or Goddess or deity comes down from its respective kingdom to this planet Earth by taking an Avatar (for example Shri Ram, Krishna were the avatar of Lord Vishnu) in order to perform their respective tasks which are already written in their fortunes. An avatar can either be a deity himself or a pious soul from the kingdom of the respective deity. And amidst these we have considered them as equal to the Supreme Almighty Power due to our grave ignorance or lack of TATVGYAN. An avatar or a deity takes birth from a mother’s womb to come to this planet Earth which is completely opposite to the definition of God as written in Holy Vedas. Hence considering and worshipping them equal to the Almighty God is no less than a Fool’s paradise for a pious soul.
People worship Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh, Goddess Durga, Ganesha and other deities along with some messengers of God like Jesus and Mohammad but they all come in the form of avatars sent by Satan(Kaal Brahm) onto this planet Earth. They are themselves entrapped into the cycle of birth and death and are under the effect of karmas then what can they do for us? Nothing. The prime motive of our human life is to attain salvation and end our rotation into births and deaths every time and that can only be done by the grace of the Supreme Almighty God as everyone except Him are deprived of the way to attain salvation. Kabir Saheb says in His sacred verses:
Ram Krishan Avtar hai, Inka nahi Sansar |
Jin Saheb sansar kiya, So kinhu na janmya nar ||
Avtar v/s Prakat Diwas: The Definition of God- As per our Holy Scriptures
Our Holy Scriptures are the only way to understand whether we are on the right path of worship because they tell us the basic identifications to identify the Supreme Almighty.
- Holy Geeta ji chapter 16 verse 23:-
YaH, shastrvidhim’, utsrjya, vartte, kamkaratH, na, saH,
Siddhim’, avapnoti, na, sukham’, na, paraam’, gatim’ ||
Translation:- The one abandoning the injunctions of the scriptures, acts according to his whimsical desires, neither attains siddhi, nor supreme state, nor happiness.
Holy Scriptures clearly indicate that Supreme God comes from His eternal abode Satlok and appears on this planet Earth and does a divine play without taking birth from any mother’s womb. And He is nourished from the milk of a maiden cow.
- Holy Rigved Mandal 9 Sukt 1 Mantra 9:
Abhi imM adhnya ut shreenanti dhenavH shishum′ |
Sommindray paatve ||9||
Translation: When the Complete Supreme God comes and appears by Himself in the form of an infant, at that time a maiden cow itself gives milk by which the Supreme God is nurtured.
- Holy Rigved Mandal 9 Sukt 96 Mantra 17:
Shishum jagyaanm hry tam mrjanti shumbhanti vahinmarutH ganen |
Kavirgeerbhi kaavyena Kavir sant somH pavitrm atyeti rebhan ||17||
Translation: The narrator of Holy Vedas says that Supreme God intentionally appears in the form of a human child and at that time utters His Tatvgyan/True spiritual knowledge with purity. He utters poems with poetic insight by calling out loudly Kavirgeerbhi i.e. Kabir Vaani with a lot of purity. That Eternal God i.e SatPurush alone in the form of a saint i.e. a Rishi is Himself KavirDev. But because of not recognising that God, people start calling Him a Kavi (poet).
These proofs from Holy Vedas are more than enough for a pious soul to understand that the Supreme Almighty is never born from a mother’s womb and by appearing on to this planet Earth He does His divine act of being a Tatvdarshi Saint and thus imparting the True Spiritual Knowledge amongst us. And that’s what logic says, the one who himself is experiencing the agony of birth and death, how can that avatar liberate us from the hassle of birth and death?
Along with this there are various other means by which we can recognize the Supreme Almighty but because of the lack of True Spiritual Knowledge amongst the pious souls we aren’t able to understand that the avatars of Brahma Vishnu and Mahesh are being sent by Satan(Kaal Brahm) so as to deceive us from the actual identity of Supreme God.

These avatars are being made to look as if they are the Supreme Power but in actual they are not, they cannot give us anything except our destinies, which is already ours. We are being given the remains of our previous good deeds right now in the present, but what will happen when these remains get over? Are we worshipping the Supreme God to recharge our fortunes? The answer is NO and worshipping these Avatars cannot attain any sort of happiness as this is against our Holy Scriptures. Then Who is the one to be worshipped? Who is the Supreme God?
Avtar v/s Prakat Diwas: Eternal Lord Kabir is the First God Ever
Kabir Saheb or Lord Kabir is the Almighty Omnipotent Indestructible Power who came onto the Holy land of Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh approximately 600 years ago and stands complete on all the identifications of a Supreme Power and is Himself the only creator of the entire universe.
He always comes by doing a divine act of appearing on this planet Earth to meet His pious souls as mentioned in the Holy RigVed Mandal 9 Sukt 82 Mantra 2 and that’s why Kabir Prakat Diwas is observed annually. By this divine act, He imparts His True Spiritual Knowledge or TATVGYAN amongst His pious souls so as to reveal His actual identity and thus exposing all the false priests and sages(inspired by Satan Kaal Brahm) who are misleading innocent devotees by teaching them the wrong method of worship.
Satguru Purush Kabir hai, Chaaro Yug Parvaan|
Juthe Guruva Mar Gaye, Ho Gaye Bhoot Masaan||
As said in Holy Vedas Kabir Saheb comes in two forms on to this planet Earth:
- Kabir Saheb appears in the form of an infant in every age and lives the life as of a common man
Kabir Saheb comes in every age by appearing on a lotus flower in the form of an infant and does a divine play by growing as a common man. And in that process He is always nourished by the milk from a maiden cow as mentioned in the Holy Rigveda Mandal 9 Sukt 1 Mantra 9. Kabir Saheb manifested via His divine acts that signifies that He is indeed the Supreme God every soul is looking from ages now. Kabir Saheb says to His pious soul Gorakhnath about His actual identity:
Avadhu Avigat se chal aaye, Koi mera bhed maram na paya ||
Na mera Janm Na Garb basera, Balak Hai Dikhlaya |
Kashi Nagar jal kamal par dera, Taha Julahe ne paya ||
He comes by different names in every age, and comes by His actual name in Kalyuga. In every age He is being taken and nourished by a childless couple. Kabir Saheb says in His sacred verses:
Satyug Mein Sat Sukrit Keh Tera, Treta Naam Muninder Mera |
Dwapar Mein Karunamay Kahaya, Kalyug Naam Kabir Dharaya ||
- Kabir Saheb appears in the form a Zinda Saint to meet His pious souls every now and then:
It has been written in Holy Rigved Mandal 9 Sukt 82 Mantra 2 that KavirDev, the Supreme God comes from His heavenly abode down to this planet Earth to meet His pious souls and thus imparts the true spiritual knowledge and reveals His actual identity. As written in Holy Vedas and is the second way by which Kabir Saheb appears every now and then and comes to His pious souls so as to reveal His TATVGYAN (True Spiritual Knowledge) By this divine act Kabir Saheb appeared and met many of His pious souls including Shri Nanak Dev ji, Saint Garibdas ji Maharaj, Respected DaduDas ji, Respected Maluk Das ji, Hazrat Mohammad ji and many others.
Kabir Prakat Diwas: The Annual Observance
The appearance of Kabir Saheb is observed as Kabir Prakat Diwas because He doesn’t take an Avatar and appears in the form of an infant in every age. Because of the lack of True spiritual knowledge we were not able to understand the meaning between an Avatar and the Supreme God. But with proofs mentioned above as per Holy Vedas it is now clear as a crystal that Kabir Saheb did the divine act as mentioned in Holy Vedas and thus Holy Vedas prove that Kabir Saheb is the Supreme Everlasting Power we were looking for from ages now. Therefore Kabir Prakat Diwas is observed every year to mark the occasion of His appearance.
This year it is going to be the 624th occasion of Kabir Prakat Diwas. Every year a Kabir Bhandara on a very large scale with invitation to the entire globe is organised by Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj along with a satsang about the divine act of Lord Kabir’s appearance. However this year due to the surge in the cases of the pandemic provision of Satsang will be made via online platforms. To know more about Kabir Saheb listen to satsang of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj on Sadhana channel from 7:30 to 8:30.
