Did Guru Gobind Singh Ji gave “Gaddi” to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji?

Recommended Posts

I have full faith in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji as a Guru because Guru Gobind Singh Ji gave “Gaddi” to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. But, this belief is based upon the “Saakhi’s”  stories, I heard from preachers and modern historians. They say Guru ji gave gaddi  at Nanded (Hazur Sahib) in 1708. The point is where is ir written? In which authentic contemporary or old histoey books? Today by chance I came across the Punjabi and English Translation of “Gur Sobha” book by Senapati, a contemporary poet & historian in the court of Guru Gobind Singh Ji which suggests otherwise. I suggest everybody to read this book in Punjabi and English with translation which ever is convenient to you. Please read these pages particularly because they are eye opener. Especially Page no. 320, 21,22, 23.

Here is the link for you to read and download book

On these pages it is very clear that Guru Ji did not give “Gaddi” to anyone; either to Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji or Khalsa panth. 

I think we all should strive hard to know the truth about succession story from old  history books like Gur Partap Suraj, Gur Bilas etc. and not believe in concocted stories by our preachers and so called modern historians.

The first mention of this is in 1741 in Gurblias Patshahi Daswin.

I don't think that this granth mentions it.

Written in 1791, although the saakhi has been mentioned a few times earlier on older texts.

I'm too ignorant to read the above, but if Guruship wasn't passed to Guru Granth Sahib Ji, then it would have passed to a "person", and the continued pressence of the lineage of the Gurus would have been irrefutably clear. The lack of said figure would suggest, as would the direct experience of interfacing with the Guru Granth Sahib Ji, that the Guruship indeed rests with the Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
