Description

This final in the four-volume series entitled Select Sikh Scriptures is exclusively devoted to Sri Guru Gobind Singh, the creator of the Khalsa.

This selection is based upon 'Dasam Granth', the compilation said to have been undertaken by Bhai Mani Singh at the command of Mata Sundri after the passing away of her spouse. Of late, there has been a well-meaning controversy about the authenticity of the entire text of 'Dasam Granth' as it has traveled to us.

An assiduous attempt has, therefore, been made to include in the present volume only those Banis whose veracity is beyond doubt. It contains major works like Jaap Saheb, Bachitar Natak, Chandi Ki Var, Zafar Nama, Shabd Hazare in full and select sheaves of Swaiyyas, Kabits and Chhands, the poetic moulds in which the Master excelled.

Guru Gobind Singh wrote at an ecastic pith; in jaap Saheb alone he has some 950 names for Divine Entity. The text of the original in Hindi, Braj, Sanskrit and Persian is transcreated by the author, trying as far as possible to do full justice to the original which is both lyrical and intense and rarefied.
