dear brother you came to my aid so i have come to yours. i suggest you read the bani bachitar natak it is the auto biography of our 10th master and this link to online; Dasam Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji

there are thousands of books but half of them are not suitable to read fro the views and politics of time have changed and been harshly distorted, the best thing to do is to stick to gurbani which is timeless and cant be changed. remember of friend the only thing that gurbani doesn't contain is falsehood the beauty of it is that it is the supreme unarguable truth.

this is what i can tell you oh brother our guru is the greatest akali nihang of all his kalgi is not of jewels pearls or gold but his kalgi is a sarbloh adh chand his dastar is full of weapons and chakars the true dasam patshai the neela falahdhari, patshah.

Thank you Bhai Gavinpal Singh Ji. Yes, the auto biography of our Dasam Pita is the source on his history and bravery. I will definitely look up the links you provided above. But I guess I was trying to take a step further to see what different writers of different times wrote (both good and bad) on Guru Gobind Singh Ji and see if I could maybe dissect some useful information out of it.

A book is only "mass" until someone picks it up to read it and gain some knowledge from it. The quantity and quality of the knowledge that one retains also varies on a diverse set of factors. But if one takes the time and effort to read it, he/she leaves with some deep thoughts or lessons that can come in handy at another time and place in his/her life. I guess, I am trying to make an attempt to pick such pieces up on my Kalgi valee pathsha so I can learn something, anything, from his life/legacy. With his kirpa, I hope that I get to learn all about him. Soon...


Your brother.
