    He lived a life of a common man as a weaver and also wrote subtle poetries of spirituality.Kabir tried very hard to tobring the clashing religious cultures of Islam and Hinduism together,. This earned him the hatred and persecution of the religious authorities in Varanasi. Nearing age 60, he was denounced and he lived a life of exile, traveling through northern India with a group of disciples. In 1518, he died at Maghar near Gorakhpur.
