Bhai Binno'S Bir


Recommended Posts

You probably know that Guru Arjan Sahib Ji sent Bhai Banno Ji to Lahore to get Ad Granth Sahib Binded but when Bhai Sahib stayed in his village he add the work of mira bai. When i read this it doesn't make since why would a devout Sikh of the Guru add other works to the Bani Guru Sahib wrote. Could this story have been made up or what could be a reason to add mira bai's writing.

It is probably because he was unable to distinguish what the purpose of the Adi Granth was to be. For this reason he made no distinction of Sargun and Nigun upashna, thus he added bani of other Bhagats and Gurus that focused more ont he Isvar Upashna rather then that of the Virat Saroop.

What amazes me today how people do not understant this and because of it refer to apocraphal texts as Kachi bani when it is 'Gurbani' but not of Virat Sarup.

The Virat Saroop Upashna is universal and the Adi Granth which later became the initail recension of the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji is the Guru for all the Jagat universally accepted.

I think Bhai Banno knew what the purpose of Ad Granth would be because Guru Arjan Sahib trusted him with a big task of getting it bound. Also it wasn't up to Bhai Banno to decide which Bani went into the Granth or not he was given duty to get it bound. Also, you probably will remember that some bhagats came from lahore i believe who wanted there work to be included in Gurbani but Guru Arjan Sahib rejected there work.

I agree with you Singho that Bhai Banno Ji was aware of the reason for the Granth and his purpose was the binding but maybe he just found some other banis so moving he added them not realising they were not of the same sidhant. The diference is that the bani added is more to sdo with the worship of Sargun upashna. This was the same as the Bani of Kanha, Pilhu, Chaju and Shah Husaain who came from Lahore.

    • was researching this and came back to this thread. Also found an older thread:    
    • Net pay after taxes. If you don't agree, think about this: If you were a trader and started off in China with silk that cost 100 rupees and came to India, and you had to pay total 800 rupees taxes at every small kingdom along the way, and then sold your goods for 1000 rupees, you'd have 100 rupees left, right? If your daswandh is on the gross, that's 100 rupees, meaning you have nothing left. Obviously, you owe only 10% of 100, not 10% of 1000. No, it's 10% before bills and other expenses. These expenses are not your expenses to earn money. They are consumption. If you are a business owner, you take out all expenses, including rent, shop electricity, cost of goods sold, advertising, and government taxes. Whatever is left is your profit and you owe 10% of that.  If you are an employee, you are also entitled to deduct the cost of earning money. That would be government taxes. Everything else is consumption.    
    • No, bro, it's simply not true that no one talks about Simran. Where did you hear that? Swingdon? The entire Sikh world talks about doing Simran, whether it's Maskeen ji, Giani Pinderpal Singh, Giani Kulwant Singh Jawaddi, or Sants. So what are you talking about? Agreed. Agreed. Well, if every bani were exactly the same, then why would Guru ji even write anything after writing Japji Sahib? We should all enjoy all the banis. No, Gurbani tells you to do Simran, but it's not just "the manual". Gurbani itself also has cleansing powers. I'm not saying not to do Simran. Do it. But Gurbani is not merely "the manual". Reading and singing Gurbani is spiritually helpful: ਪ੍ਰਭ ਬਾਣੀ ਸਬਦੁ ਸੁਭਾਖਿਆ ॥  ਗਾਵਹੁ ਸੁਣਹੁ ਪੜਹੁ ਨਿਤ ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰ ਪੂਰੈ ਤੂ ਰਾਖਿਆ ॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The Lord's Bani and the words are the best utterances. Ever sing hear and recite them, O brother and the Perfect Guru shall save thee. Pause. p611 Here Guru ji shows the importance of both Bani and Naam: ਆਇਓ ਸੁਨਨ ਪੜਨ ਕਉ ਬਾਣੀ ॥ ਨਾਮੁ ਵਿਸਾਰਿ ਲਗਹਿ ਅਨ ਲਾਲਚਿ ਬਿਰਥਾ ਜਨਮੁ ਪਰਾਣੀ ॥੧॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥ The mortal has come to hear and utter Bani. Forgetting the Name thou attached thyself to other desires. Vain is thy life, O mortal. Pause. p1219 Are there any house manuals that say to read and sing the house manual?
    • All of these are suppositions, bro. Linguists know that, generally, all the social classes of a physical area speak the same language, though some classes may use more advanced vocabulary. I'm talking about the syntax. That is, unless the King is an invader, which Porus was not. When you say Punjabi wasn't very evolved, what do you mean? The syntax must have been roughly the same. As for vocabulary, do you really think Punjabis at the time did nothing more than grunt to express their thoughts? That they had no shades of meaning? Such as hot/cold, red/yellow/blue, angry/sweet/loving/sad, etc? Why must we always have an inferiority complex?
    • I still think about that incident now and then, just haven't heard any developments regarding what happened, just like so many other things that have happened in Panjab!
