Vaheguru ji ka khalsa

Vaheguru ji ki fateh 

 

Sangat ji, I have a few questions that I have come across and hope some guru da piaara can shine a light on

I have been studying gurbani in Guru Granth Sahub Ji via a sehej path I have kept. I have been reading 1-4 shabads a day and fully understanding the shabad before moving on. I am currently on ang 33 and plan to spend a few years to complete the sehaj path.

My questions are:

when should I start studying other banis like Dasam Granth bani, Bhai Gurdas jis vaaran, and Bhai Nanad Lal jis bani?  

Is there a certain point of understanding I should be at from Guru Granth Sahib Ji before starting to read other banis or should I complete my sehaj path before moving on?

If there is a certain point of understanding, how do I know I am ready? I remember reading somewhere a while ago that Dasam Granth bani contains bir raas and Guru Granth sahib ji has shaant raas and that a person cannot handle the bir raas in Dasam Granth if they are not ready. 

What is the order I should study other banis in, like should I first study Bhai Gurdas Jis vaaran before moving onto Dasam Granth bani and so forth. Guru Granth Sahib ji obviously being first.

Thank you in advance

Do one at time.

However, Shant / Bir rass both must b maintained. So after Sehaj of SGGS be sure to read the banias, along with starting Dasam Granth, rather than focusing purely on DG... Keep the energy of Shant rass up is what am saying.

A recommendation, if you plan to study/ do DG an hour a day, do 10 mins of SGGS. Or if 2 hours then 20 mins SGGS / Naam Simran. Both will go hand in hand.

This is not true.  Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji Bani also is shaant and Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is also bir rass.  Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji tells on history, true story of avatars, and gives us more Bani to read on praising Akal Purakh.   Think about it this way.  When Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib ji was fighting wars along side Sikhs. Did those Sikhs not have bir rass?  Bir rass is obtained from the Guru and the Guru today is Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji.
