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.
