GOMATI My Haj (Muslim Pilgrimage) is on the banks of Gomati, where lives my Pir (Guru) of yellow garments (i.e Krishna). (Asa Sri Kabir, p. 478) Gomati is a river in Uttar Pradesh. The Sikh Gurus and radical saints do not believe in religious rituals. Kabir, in the reference given above, is critical of going on a pilgrimage to Mecca. Wherever the Name of the Lord is uttered and His Praises are sung, that is only the pilgrim station for him. In this reference he mÃ¥kes a mention of the Gomati river and Lord Krishna, rising above the communal prejudices.
