Kabir in Every Sense Varanasi

We are waiting to welcome you in 2024

Dates to be announced soon

About Us

Every year, as winter arrives, we celebrate the infinite wisdom of the 15th-century mystic poet, Kabir, in a city 'older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend', Varanasi. For the past seven years, when the weather turns nippy, we spend three memorable days soaking in Kabir’s syncretic philosophy – with music, literature, and discourse - on the banks of the eternal river, Ganga.

The Mahindra Kabira Festival has programmed great artists and thinkers like Prahlad Singh Tipaniya, Mukhtiyar Ali, Aruna Sairam, the Raghu Dixit Project, Indian Ocean, Anwar Khan Manganiar, Shabnam Virmani, Kabir Cafe, Kailash Kher, Shubha Mudgal,Mooralala, Malini Awasthi, Dastaan Live, Paresh Maity, Purushottam Agrawal, Linda Hess and looks forward to many more.

The upcoming festival, will include a plethora of classical and folk music, talks, art demonstrations, the characteristic Kabira boat rides, a delectable local food journey and the quintessential Ganga Arati experience. Heritage walks will unlock the lanes, the shops & sights of this incredible city for our delegates.

- Delegate 2018

Loved listening to the melodious singing, watching the ganges flow by at 6:30 am in the morning

- Delegate 2018

The river and the heritage walk, The Mornings by the Ganges, listening to Kabir while Benares goes about its daily activites - Loved it!

- Delegate 2018

The 'Kabira' songs, the warm vibrant people, the river ganges, The event in this setting and the wonderful hospitality. I also liked walking along the ghats- but how can I forget the 'climbs' everyday. These have also made us fitter. A private dip in the 'sacred ganges' for ladies should be organised

- Delegate 2018

The exposure to Banaras as a city - I learned that you can be happy amidst the chaos & confusion!

- Delegate 2018

Music early morning! It was pure bliss!! Aartis- People are simply amazing and the volunteers superb.
