For those that don't already know this site has full Dasam Granth Sahib in English and Punjabi. They have a index for the different chapters that you can click on. The English has some minor spelling mistakes, I'm reading Kalki Avatar and came across some spelling mistakes

https://www.searchgurbani.com/dasam-granth/index/chapter/en

 

I just checked earlier today and a lot of the translations of CP are missing.

I would love to learn, why Guru Gobind Singh Ji,  didn't want to add his writings to Guru Grant Sahib Ji,  i know thw theory of not wanting to make Guru Grant Sahib Ji too big.

I'm not sure if it is true but maybe Guru Gobind Singh jee was showing humility in that they didn't feel they were on the same level as those whose writings are in Guru Granth Sahib jee, they said "Sabh Sikhan ko Hukam Hai, Guru Maneyo Granth" so maybe they added their writings in a whole separate Granth because they didn't want people to bow down to their writing as a sign of humility?

Naah you cant say One Guru had Different Thoughts than Others, Guru Arjan Dev ji added his Bani Himself in SGGS, that doesn't create lesser humility for one and for other,  more Humility.

Yeah, I think Baba Deep Singh ji also helped in the process. And by reading it you know it was Guru Sahib's Bani, no one can come close to writing like Maharaj.

It's been posted on this site before. There's a historical granth in which the Singhs ask Guru ji to add their bani to Guru Granth Sahib.

Guru ji declines saying that (Guru Granth Sahib) is Guru, this (Dasam Granth) is my play.

When gore ruled india. They were trying to study all the religions. And finally one gora was able to convince a nirmala saadh/baba to get darshan of SGGS. But when gora asked to see the other granth. The saadhu refused, saying its only for the khalsa. 

So while SGGS ji is for all of humanity, dasam granth is for the khalsa. For their spiritual upliftment, for knowledge of warfare, historical granths of other faiths that have been translated for knowledge of the past etc

Guru Arjan Dev ji accepted the oppressors deeds without resorting to the sword, but Guru HarGobind Sahib resorted to the sword to fight oppressors. The Jyot was one but the actions weren't. The answer has nothing to do with humility.

Baba Deep Singh compiled one of his own as well.

The style of writing of Sri Dasme Patshah's Granth Sahib is very different from Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Sri Guru Granth Sahib is written in Raag, which are to be used in Kirtan, whereas Dasam Bani is all written in Chhands, apart from a very very small part in raags. Chhands are poetic ways of recital along a drumming rhythm.  Writings in Chhands are to be recited, not sung.

This is imho, one of the main reasons why Guru Sahib didn't add it. Also importantly the themes of both Granths are quite different.

 

SS Kapoor in his book about Sri Dasme Patshah's Granth Sahib has detailed the different styles of chhands.

 

This is a video about Chhands if anyoen is interested:

 

or look at page 21 in the book (pg 25 of the pdf) for more info:

    • Lol. You'd think you'd be more understanding. 
    • sanskrit is only used for prayer as it is considered by brahmins as the language of the gods, in fact they would not teach to anyone who was not born  a brahmin . the fact that anyone of lower castes cannot hear sanskrit or read it means the brahmins had to speak in a 'lower' language for practicalities , for other castes they had to express themselves in 'manmade' languages for all their spiritual needs... Punjabi is so much richer and expressive because of this, a boli borne of the soil and the soul of Punjab
    • Theres always been an uneven ratio between girls and boys amongst British Indians due to sex selective abortion. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7123753.stm  
    • Yh I wonder why brahmins gave up sanskrit and started speaking other regional languages.     I'm all for reviving old languages  as long as they don't force them onto people who don't want to learn it Punjabi has its roots in sanskrit.  Early punjabi was adopted by the nath yogis and they used it to write spiritual poetry,  soon after that the sufis adopted punjabi.    I wonder if the punjabi poems written by the early nath yogis still exist?  I know that there are some jain manuscripts written in early punjabi that are preserved.  
    • The story of Ganika is mentioned in Guru Granth Sahib ji, Dasam Granth Sahib and in Bhai Gurdas jis vaarns. Ganika Paapan Swam Across the Worldly Ocean Pritpal Singh / January 14, 2014 ਗਨਕਾ ਪਾਪਨ ਹੋਇਕੈ ਪਾਪਾਂ ਦਾ ਗਲ ਹਾਰ ਪਰੋਤਾ॥
      gankaa paa pan hoek ai paa paa(n) d aa gal haa r parot aa||
      Gankaa was a sinful prostitute who wore the necklace of misdeeds around her neck.
      (Vaaran Bhai Gurdaas Ji, page 10) Ganika ‘Paapan’ (female gender for sinner) was a prostitute who indulged in worldly pleasure. Her whole life was spent doing many unsavory deeds. She never recited God’s Name. She was a prostitute by profession but not necessarily because she needed the money to survive but did it out of pleasure and enjoyment. ਮਹਾਂ ਪੁਰਖ ਅਚਾਣਚਕ ਗਣਕਾ ਵਾੜੇ ਆਇ ਖਲੋਤਾ॥
      Mahaa(n) pu rakh achaanachak gank aa vaa rrae aae kalo taa||
      Once a great man was passing by who halted in her courtyard. One day as it was raining heavily, a ‘Saadhoo’ (pious person seeking God) happened by chance to come by her house. He did not know who lived there. Ganika answered and saw that a Saadhoo had come to her doorstep. She danced to the kitchen and all the way back to the Saadhoo with a glass of milk in hand . From previous lives she had accumulated good Karma the fruits of which she would now receive. She would be blessed with an opportunity for salvation. The Saadhoo asked Ganika, “O daughter, what do you do for a living?” Ganika became embarrassed and said, “Forgive me, my karma is low. I am unfortunate as I am a prostitute.” The Saadhoo refused to drink the milk. “I cannot drink milk given by someone who earns their livelihood through corrupt, immoral means.” Ganika was moved and saddened that the Saadhoo refused to drink the milk. She pleaded with the Saadhoo, “Please drink the glass of milk. I will feel bad if you won’t drink it. What must I do for you to agree to drink it?” ਦੁਰਮਤਿ ਦੇਖ ਦਇਆਲ ਹੋਇ ਹਥਹੁੰ ਉਸਨੋਂ ਦਿਤੋਸੁ ਤੋਤਾ॥
      du rmat de kh dayiaal h oe, hath-hahu usn o(n) di- tos t otaa ||
      Seeing her bad plight he became compassionate and offered her a special parrot. ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਉਪਦੇਸ ਕਰ ਖੇਲ ਗਿਆ ਦੇ ਵਣਜ ਸਉਤਾ॥
      r aam naa m upd es kar, khe l giaa d e vanaj sou taa||
      He told her to teach the parrot to repeat the name of Ram. Having made her understand this fruitful trade he then went away. The The Saadhoo said, “I will drink the milk, if you make one promise.” “Which is?” asked Ganika. The Saadhoo answered, “I will give you my parrot. I want you to promise to teach the parrot how to repeat ‘Raam’ (He who pervades everything) ” And with that, the Saadhoo departed from her house. ਲਿਵ ਲਾਗੀ ਤਿਸ ਤੋਤਿਅਹੁੰ ਨਿਤ ਪੜ੍ਹਾਏ ਕਰੈ ਅਸੋਤਾ॥
      li v laa gee
      thi s tho thiah u(n) ni th parrhaae ae karai asoth aa||
      Each and every day, with full concentration, she would teach the parrot to say Ram. Ganika began teaching the parrot as per the Saadhoo’s instruction. The parrot was a slow learner. It required intense effort of repetition of ‘Ram’ for the parrot to learn. Day and night she persevered. ਪਤਿਤ ਉਧਾਰਣ ਰਾਮ ਨਾਮ ਦੁਰਮਤਿ ਪਾਪ ਕਲੇਵਰ ਧੋਤਾ॥
      pat it u dhaaran r aam naa m, durmat p aap kalevar dh otaa ||
      The name of Lord is the liberator of the fallen ones. It washed away her evil wisdom and deeds. Repeating ‘Raam’ had a wonderful positive effect on Ganika. As she taught the parrot then also her spirits were uplifted . In time, the parrot learned to say Raam perfectly. By then it had also become an ingrained practice for her to repeat ‘Ram’ and she did so all day. ਅੰਤਕਾਲ ਜਮ ਜਾਲ ਤੋੜ ਨਰਕੈ ਵਿਚ ਨ ਖਾਧੁਸ ਗੋਤਾ॥
      antkaa l jam jaa l torr, narak ai vi ch na kaadh us go taa||
      At the time of death, it cut away the noose of Yama – the messenger of death she did not have to drown in the ocean of hell. ਗਈ ਬੈਕੁੰਠ ਬਿਬਾਣ ਚੜ੍ਹ ਨਾਉ ਨਾਰਾਇਣ ਛੋਤ ਅਛੋਤਾ॥
      ge-ee bai kunt b ibaa n charrh naao n aaraai n chhot achh otaa ||
      Due to the elixir of name (of the Lord) she became totally devoid of sins and was lifted to the heavens. ਥਾਉਂ ਨਿਥਾਵੇਂ ਮਾਣ ਮਣੋਤਾ ॥
      thhaa ou nithh aavae maan man othaa ||
      The name (of the Lord) is the last refuge of the shelterless ones. Repeating “Raam Raam Raam Raam Raam….”,Ganika’s mind was purified and her past misdeeds were washed away. Her karmic account had cleared by the time of her death and thus she was freed from the cycle of reincarnation. ਜਿਹ ਸਿਮਰਤ ਗਨਕਾ ਸੀ ਉਧਰੀ ਤਾ ਕੋ ਜਸੁ ਉਰ ਧਾਰੋ ॥1॥ ਰਹਾਉ ॥
      jih simrat gankaa see udhree taa ko jas ur dhaaro ||1|| rehaao ||
      Meditating on Him in remembrance, Ganika the prostitute was saved; enshrine His Praises within your heart. ||1||Pause||
      (Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, ang 632) Her dedicated repitition of ‘Ram’ became a deep meditation of God through which she attained her salvation despite her occupation and how she had spent her life. As she was cleansed then saved, enshrining His praises, so can anyone else be also blessed with salvation.
