Creation of the world according to Bachitar Natak

There's a clear delineation to be made between two distinct categories of their authored works: 1) Their divinely-inspired / spiritual / metaphysical writings that we take as Gurbani, and 2) Their translations of existing literature (including ancient Hindu texts) they were personally fond of, or works they simply wanted to present to the public in another language for posterity.

I also this is an important distinction to make as well. Would Bachitar natak fall in the first or second category though

It's stated as autobiographical, though, isn't it? Could it be a bit of both depending on context and the relevant semantics used?

I agree but it would take a learned mind to recognize the differences between translated works and original works, and to determine what is approved by Guru Sahib and what is not.
