Kabir the weaver

Kabir was a weaver. He continued his work his whole life. even after his enlightenment he was still weaving; he loved it!

Many times his disciples asked him, prayed to him with tears in their eyes: “You need not work anymore we are here to take care of you! So many disciples, why go on in your old age spinning, weaving?”

Kabir would say, “But do you know for whom I am weaving, for whom I am spinning? For God!—because everyone is now a god to me. It is my way of prayer.”
