Select Sikh Scriptures: Guru Gobind Singh (Volume IV)

K.S. Duggal (Translator) K.S. Duggal (Compiler)
Synopsis Being published on the auspicious occasion of the birth of the Khalsa, the final in the four-volume series entitled Select Sikh Scriptures is exclusively devoted to Sri. Guru Gobind Singh, the creator of the Khalsa who moulded the followers of Guru Nanak into a people fired with the spirit of righteousness and imbued to resist evil, if necessary, by sword. The selection is based upon Dasam Granth, the compilation said to have been undertaken by Bhai Mani Singh at the command of Mata Sundri after the passing away of her spouse. Of late, there has been a well-meaning controversy about the authenticity of the entire text of Dasam Granth as it has travelled to us. An assiduous attempt has, therefore, been made to include in the present volume only those Banis whose veracity is beyond doubt. It contains major works like Jaap Saheb, Bachitar Natak, Chandi Ki Var, Zafar Nama, Shabd Hazare in full and select sheaves of Swaiyyas, Kabits and Chhands, the poetic moulds in which the Master excelled. Guru Gobind Singh wrote at an ecstatic pitch; in Jaap Saheb alone he has some 950 names for divine entity. The text of the original in Hindi, Braj, Sanskrit and Persian is transcreated by Kartar Singh Duggal, an eminent litterateur, trying as far as possible to do full justice to the original which is both lyrical and searching, intense and rarefied.
