Adi Granth remained with the gurus until the imposter Dhir Mal, took it hoping that by possessing the granth, he could succeed as guru. Tenth Guru Gobind Singh dictated the entire scripture of Adi Granth from memory to his scribes adding his father's hymns and one of his own compositions. Upon his death he appointed the scripture Siri Guru Granth Sahib eternal Guru of the Sikhs. His remaining compositions are in the collection Dasam Granth.
