Manuscripts of the Guru Granth Sahib and untruths by AKJ


Please have read of this post. The AKJ argue that because the "Kachi Bani" is inserted before Rag Mala, this means that Rag Mala is also "Kachi Bani". Firstly the compositions before Rag Mala in this type of recension known as the Bhai Bhanno recension are from the Pran Sangali, a book explaining Yoga from a Gurmat point of view, written by Guru Nanak for Raja Shivnabh. As its contents are Yogic it was not included in Guru Granth Sahib Ji by Guru Arjan Dev Ji. See Gur Pratap Suraj Granth.

Bhai Bhanno was told by the Guru to taken some smaller Pothis to be bound together in Lahore, he then added these parts, infront of Rag Mala. Therefore, this does not mean Rag Mala is not Gurbani.

As the years went on, the Bhanno recension, and original Kirtarpuri Bir, had the Saloks of Guru Tegh Bahadur were added by Guru Gobind Singh Ji. This was then known as the Dam Dami Birh of Adi Guru Granth Sahib Ji. It contained Rag Mala.

The recensions shown on the Tapoban website without Rag Mala, are from Patiala. These recensions were created by Sobha Singh, Teja Singh Bhasauria, and were taken by the Maharaja of Patiala from the Akal Takht. After the Panth refused to accept them.
These recensions have been employed by Giani Gurditt Singh to prove his theory, as ordered by his Vidiya-Guru, Bhai Randhir Singh. None of the recensions in Patiala Burj has a traceable history unlike many recensions at Hazur Sahib, Patna Sahib, Dam Dama Sahib, Sri Akal Takht Sahib and so on. Therefore the work of Giani Gurditt Singh is biased, and engineered to prove his point. He has not been representative with the facts.
