The Granth of Guru Gobind Singh

Full Product Description

This book offer new insights into the secondary scripture of the Sikhs, Dasam Patshah Ka Granth or the Granth of Guru Gobind Singh. The scripture has in recent time adopted the name of Dasam Granth and has traditionally been attributed to Guru Gobind Singh. Many studies have adopted a polemic approach and focused on the authorship of the text. This book takes a multi-disciplinary approach and considers the relationship of the scripture in terms of newly discovered manuscripts, apocryphal translations, and relics. The manuscript tradition shows how the Granth was written and compiled during Guru Gobind Singhas time as well as transmission of the compositions onto material items such as the swords. The book also considers the compositions which were ignored by the Sodhak Committee as a result a thorough examination of these apocryphal texts has been undertaken. This is supplemented with complete translation of these compositions. New narratives are discussed including the relationship of the text to the eighteenth century Khalsa.
This is witnessed through the traditional groups like the Akali Nihangs who venerate the text in its entirety and on par with the primary scripture Adi Granth. A consideration of the practices at the thrones of polity or Takhts shows the inter relationship and unity of both Adi Granth and Dasam Granth. The book in essence takes the reader through the history of the Sikh faith and how the Dasam Granth has a central place in this history.
