I have a few questions regarding Gurbani i.e. specifically the Bani of the Bhagats or Bhagat Bani.

1.) As per Gurbani who is a Bhagat and who is a Guru?

2.) How do both inter-relate?

3.) Was Bhagat Bani edited by the Gurus? If so how and why?

4.) What criterion do the Bhagat's set for a Guru and vice versa?

5.) Why and how did Guru Nanak Dev Ji select the 15 Bhagats whose compositions we revere?

6.) Chronologically when did these Bhagats reside in relation to the Gurus?

7.) In light of both Bhagat Bani (and Guru-Bani) are we given to understand that the following statement holds coin in Sikhi?

'Sikh Dharma was always there in the form of "Sanataan Dharma" or the ever-existent faith. As per the times, Guru Nanak Dev Ji and his successors initiated revolutionary changes.'
-S.J.S Pall.
8.) How did Purataan sampradas co-relate with the apostles of the Bhagats?
​9.) How embellished are the Janamsaakhis which relate meetings between the Gurus and the Bhagats despite substantive chronological variations?

Bhagat Sahibaan whose Bani is in Guru Granth Sahib Jee were Gursikhs and met Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee.

Mahapursh Sant Giani Gurbachan Singh Jee talks of the Visheshta of Bhagat Bani and relation the Bhagat Sahibaan had with Sri Guru Nanak Dev Jee here:
