Suppose a student asks 10 of his friends to write one essay each, then he compiles these essays into a book and says it is written by him. Is he right or wrong? Obviously wrong. Origin of debate: Long after the death of Guru Gobind Singh ji, anti —Sikh and anti-gurmat writings of some poets were compiled along with few writings of Guru Gobind Singh ji.

Excerpts from the video: Sikhs out of their own cleverness, are looking for an extra Guru. You already have a puraa complete Guru in Guru Granth Sahib ji. It simply means a collection of works. There is no religious significance to it, it simply means a collection, compendium. Here, Manjit takes the examples of works of poet Shakespeare.

So when you say Dasam Granth, there is no special meaning, no religous meaning. It simply means a collection. And dasam, you go back to Sikh history, the first time it is mentioned is during the time of Bhai Mani Singh.

He had collected some of his works and put it together and named it Dasam Granth. In , the Singh Sabha movement collected all the different versions of Dasam Granth available. There were 36 different versions avaialble.

The vidhaans learned sat down from June to February , collected banis considered common to all [the versions] and put together into the Dasam Granth you have now. It was collected by the vidhaans of that time. For some reasons, he had burnt all the 36 versions of the Dasam Granth.

So, there is no evidence at all as to what was common, and what was not. It contains a lot of other banis. For example, Akaal Ustat. Actually, the first word of the…. The title is a combination of the first word and the last word of a line…. Its an incomplete bani, the last one word is incomplete. But the swayes we read everyday appear there…In the Akaal Ustat you find, from to , there are 20 paragraphs which are ustat, in praise, of chandi. So, when you read Akaal Ustat, it comes in a package.

You are reading sevaiye, and reading chandi di ustat praises of chandi. Before that, from to , [various] questions are posed …all questions are put, but no answers given. Gurbani does not work like that. You go to Guru Granth Sahib maharaaj, every question has an answer. You may read the Guru Granth Sahib a thousand times and yet you will not be able to comprehend it. Some argue that it is okay to read the bani even though its not from the Guru Granth Sahib.

Actually, there is harjeh effect. You are loading kachee banee. This is not Gurbani, which is sat banee. Dasam Pathshah was a poraa Guru, but he never ever said that these are the bani you should be reading. Be clear what is to be read. The whole life will pass by and you will not fully comprehend Guru Granth Sahib.

To read anything other than Guru Granth Sahib ji and the three banis which has been pervaaned approved by the Panth and Guru Gobind Singh ji, in my view, is totally wrong. You are burdening yourself. It is not necessary. Follow us on Twitter. Visit our website: www.


Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Steek Full (Volume 1-4)

Triya Charitar the character of women Zafarnama epistle of victory, a letter written to Emperor Aurangzeb Hikayats. It was designed to be heard, so there is considerable repition, and a variety of meteres to hold the attention. The language of most of the Dasam Granth is largely Braj veering towards Sanskrit at one extreme and simple colloquial Hindi at the other. The Braj dialect is a variety of medieval Hindi with a mixture of Sanskrit, Persiona, and Arabic words.
