    Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji ki fateh.

    Some academicians are questioning the inclusion of the Bhatt Swaiyas in Guru Granth Ji..... as these are straight forward "praise" of the First Five Gurus. These were inluded and are now enjoying the same status as GURBANI...Dhur Ki bani ayee jin saglee chint mitayee. These Bhattas are said to be kirtaniyas at the drabar of Guru Ramdass Ji... Could Guru Ramdass Ji for example allow such "praise" directed straight at Himself as Kirtan in His darbar...and thus this same thing was done at the Drabar of Guru Arjun Sahib jee. PRAISE of Guru Nanak as Dhur AAD GURU is acceptable....but how could Guru Arjun Ji accept such praise for Himself and include this in Gurbani....or is there a different explanation and these new scholars are barking up the wrong tree ?? I wonder ??

    Secondly these Bhatt Swaiyeh are the ONLY GURBANI that is also PRAISING and CONNECTING to the Hindu "Gods" Krishna and Raam Chander...acting as the LINK between these Hindu Gods in Satyug Dwapur and claiming that these same gods are now Guru nanak and the other Sikh Gurus in Klayug..

    Thirdly the Bhatt Swaiyehs are "unique" in that they are written "descripivally" ABOUT the SIKH GURUS, and the Hindu Gods..Krishan, Raam Chander...every other GURBANI is NOT DESCRIPTIVE about any living person, and is ENTIRELY about WAHEGURU and HIS NAAM/PATH to HIM, Gurmatt etc.

    Gyani Ji,
    this too does baffle me. Kal refers to Nanak as Krishna.....
    if anyone has the answer to why this is please do enlighten.

    Guru Fateh.
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
