What is desirable changes?

Kabir is considered both a Sufi and Brahmin saint. Kabir was found by a Muslim weaver Niru and his wife Nima, abandoned on River Ganges. As he grew up, he took up weaving, like his foster father, as his profession.

He always had a bent toward religion and God. But he believed that they were neither found in Mosque or Temple, rather God was to be found in the heart of a devotee.

Kabir’s poetry draws on both Hinduism and Islam, though he was critical of certain aspects of both faiths. Some of his verses are included in the compilation of Sikh scriptures known as the Adi Granth. His mystical poems are grounded in the details and earthly particulars of everyday life. He also pays great emphasis on the role of a teacher in the life of every person. 

His teachings suggested that "Truth" is with the person who is on the path of righteousness. He considered everything, living and non-living, as divine, and who is passively detached from the affairs of the world.
