KABIR SHOWS KAMAL TO BE A PERFECT DISCIPLE

Some devotees came to Kabir one day and asked him, "Who is a true disciple?" Kabir called his son and foremost disciple, Kamal. "I have dropped my spindle while weaving. Bring me a lamp so that I can find it."

It was broad daylight yet Kamal brought a lamp without questioning.

"Kamal, today many devotees will be coming here for lunch. Please prepare some sweets and add a handful of salt to them," said Kabir. Kamal obeyed implicitly. Turning to the devotees, Kabir said, "Don't you think that Kamal knew that my commands were ridiculous? But the moment you begin to obey the Guru's command without question, that moment meditation comes to you spontaneously and the Lord grants His darshan."
