  3. Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh I would like to personally thank Sikh Sangat and especially the Sikh Sangat Radio team in the broadcast of the programme. Satnam Singh worked hard in making the event a bigger success by making the programme available online. Please see my video of the event The full report on the seminars can be seen here: http://www.sikhnugget.com/2013/08/khalsa-di-virsa-seminars-2013-glory-of.html Gurfateh Gurinder Singh Mann
  4. Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa Wahe Guru Ji Ki fateh It will be great for the UK sangat to see Gyani Sher Singh. See my recent visit and discussion with Gyani ji http://www.sikhscholar.co.uk/2013/04/gurinder-singh-mann-meets-gyani-sher.html Gurinder Singh Mann
  5. I have seen one or two manuscripts in private collections which mention the Vidyasagar. The other manuscripts are most likely spread across libraries in the Punjab.
  6. Something additional to add to this is that the Vidyiasagar(Ocean of Knowledge) was the works of the Gurus and the Kavis that was lost in the River Sirsa and not Sri Dasam Granth Sahib as some people claim, There are fragments of Vidyiasagar still available today. Somebody needs to collect these works and bring this out into the public domain.
  7. Wahe Guru ji Ka Khalsa Wahe Guru Ji Ki fateh 1. There is no manuscripts i am aware of that detail the political inclinations of the Khalsa. To get a complete picture on needs to go through Sri Dasam Granth Sahib, Sri Sarabloh Granth, followed by the Rehatnamas. There are numerous texts from Guru Sahibs time which go into Sikh history. 2. The manuscripts i have detailed are verified and are listed in the essay where they are kept. 3. The Kavis spoke on different themes the main research in this area was undertaken by Piara Singh Padam in his Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji de Darbari Ratan.There is other non published work in this area as well. I don't think there is a complete list but Padam list's most of them. Unfortunately nobody has looked at this great treasure of the Durbar. Until there is a team of people translating these works they remain in the background. The website www.bhainandlal.com covers some of the works. Most of the Kavis praised Guru Gobind Singh ji and this gives us details on the mutual respect by the Guru and by the Kavis.
  8. The Kavi Durbar of Guru Gobind Singh A insight into rare manuscripts scribed in the Court of Guru Gobind Singh See the link here: http://www.sikhscholar.co.uk/2013/04/the-kavi-durbar-of-guru-gobind-singh.html
  9. The Anandpuri bir of Guru Gobind Singh was kept at Amritsar: Akal Takht Sahib and then moved to Bombay as to what GPS says. There is only a handful of people who have ever seen it. A photograph appears in Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Q and A: I have seen a copy of the whole birh in a private collection.The original cannot be located but it was last seen was in Chandigarh The findings and analysis of this manuscript will be in The Granth Of Guru Gobind Singh: Essay, lectures and Translations.
  10. The Anandpuri bir in the pictures in not the Anandpuri Bir of Dasam Granth Sahib. That is a different birh.
  11. Wahe Guru Ji Ka Khalsa Wahe Guru Ji Ki Fateh The Sri Dasam Granth Sahib saroop at Aurangabad is not a new discovery. I came across it some years ago and Dr Kamalroop Singh also has written about the manuscript in his PHD. We discuss the manuscript in our forthcoming book: The Granth of Guru Gobind SIngh: Essays, lectures and Translations. Panjab Digital Library has digitized many important Sri Dasam Granth Saroops over the last few years none of these are available on their website I had to go to Chandigarh to look at the pictures in their offices Gurinder
  12. Akal Thanks Singh ji 15 years in the game and i am hungry to find gems day in and out regarding Sikh history and heritage. My worry is that why is nobody like me,,,or even better than me ,,,where did we lose the idea we cannot read? We all need to wake up everyday and say have i done anything worthwhile, When there is silence.... certain movements take over and then we can only blame overselves.
