Bhai Balbir Singh – Aad Gur-e Nameh
by Dr Anurag Singh
I am uploading twelve photographs from two different manuscripts with identical Gurmukhi Script as follows:
- An old manuscript of Puratan Janamsakhi dated 1815Bk/1758CE along with Sahasranama, Nasihatnama On Folios 1-8, and Janamsakhi from Folio 9-205.
- Recently discovered manuscript of Guru Arjan Dev’s SUKHMANI SAHIB, complete with paintings of Guru Angad Dev Ji, Guru Arjan Dev Ji, Bishnu Avatar, Brahma Avatar, Beraha Avatar and Krishan Avatar on few Folios.
The manuscript of Puratan Janamsakhi is from my Library and of SUKHMANI SAHIB is from some family of UK. The script in both the manuscripts is identical, which give rise to the opinion that SUKHMANI SAHIB manuscript too was prepared by some Udasi Saint, and its possible date of composition is 1757-58 CE.
This manuscript of SUKHMANI SAHIB is going to give severe pain in all parts of Body of Slanderers of Guru Gobind Singh and Dasam Granth, when they will now come face to face with the pictures of Avatars in this manuscript. Guru Granth Sahib as well as Bhai Gurdas recognise like Guru Gobind Singh recognise TEN AVATARS. This was the thinking of the Missionary Order of Udasis, reorganised by Guru Hargobind Sahib and his successors in the middle of the 18th century just 50 years after Guru Gobind Singh’s departure from this ephemeral world in 1708CE.
The Missionaries blessed by the Anti-Sikh agencies, working overtime to defame the Sikhs, Sikh Gurus, Sikh Scriptures and Sikh Ethics through their paid Missionaries stand condemned and isolated with polluted thoughts, generated by their pay masters.
