    Guru piayario jio,
    I concur with aad0002 jis observation.
    I would compare the SS to the 1000 Arabian Nights Tales..most of the Sau Sakhis are just too tall to be true.. several types available in amrtisar bookstores the last time i visited..

    These sau sakhi...book of "Prophecy" is used by the NAAMDHAREE SECT to legitimise their Baba balk as 11th Guru and so on....All a load of CR**.....as every composition of Guru Nnak Ji Sahib is preserved in the SGGS..and preserved by none other than His LEGITIMATE SUCCESSOR GURUS....signed by Guru Arjun Ji Sahib..Guru hargobind Ji Sahib..Guru Teg bahadur Ji Sahib and Guruship bestowed on SGGS by Guru Gobind Singh ji in Naded 1708 in SANGAT congregated for that purpose. NO "other" book was Parkash at par or even alongside/nearby to SGGS when it was declared GURU of the Sikhs by Guru Gobind Singh ji.
    Full Text of Both is as follows:
    The Karni Namah and the Raj Namah are two significant chapters of the Sau Sakhi, the Sikh book of prophecy. The Raj Namah appears in, The History Of The Sikhs, by J D Cunningham on p. 340. Cunningham came across this document during the mid 19th century. He states that these compositions are of course fabulous as regards Guru Nanak.
    The Karni Namah was told to Qazi Rukan Din, Pir Bahaoud Din, Ghous, Kuthab, Saalaar, Hajji, Sheikh and Mushaikh Aulviya, who sat with Guru Nanak at religious discussions. The Raj Namah was told to Kaarun, on Guru Nanak’s return from medina.
    <table width="75%" border="0"> <tbody><tr> <td width="50%"> </td> <td width="50%">Karni Nama </td> </tr> </tbody></table>
    While Guru Nanak was in Mecca and Medina, Qazi Rukan Din asked, ?True King, tell us your prophecy again. Tell us how you will unfold the future?.
    Your name is Nanak Nirankari and you are from the Nation of the Lord. What are the instructions for the future?

    Nanak replied Rukan Din, listen to the true answer
    Whosoever reads or listens to this shall be content. All doubts shall be removed.

    In the tenth dress shall reside The Lord.
    I shall fight many battles against Emperor Aurangzeb.
    I shall then send a letter of victory (Zafarnamah) to Aurangzeb with my Singh (Bhai Daya Singh).
    Upon seeing him, Power shall lessen and he shall forget his devious ways.
    Emperor Aurangzeb will be overwhelmed by the sight of Daya Singh and will start to tremble.
    The Khalsa been resurrected! Good has not been done by Gobind Singh?
    I shall leave having given a kingdom; My name being Gobind
    There will be a time when the Khalsa shall forget the teachings I have given them. Sikhi will only be left in name. Many Wars shall occur.
    I will have to return again to resurrect the Khalsa. They shall reside in the Punjab.
    I shall make people from all four corners into one.
    They will be in Majjha; They will raid Lahore.
    They will bring Potohaar to justice; They will take Peshawar.
    They will set up a cantonment at Attock and then open the Khyber Pass.
    They will establish a kingdom in Kabul and then take Ghazni.
    After bringing Hazaara to justice they will march on to Kandahar.
    After taking Balack and Buckaara, they will conquer Sindh and Baloch.
    After gaining victory over these lands they shall govern all the people.
    Mecca, Medina and Rome shall tremble.
    They shall gain victory in battle over south and west India.
    The Guru's Army shall sit at the throne of Delhi.
    Umbrellas of kingship shall sway over their heads. All shall be content.
    From East to West all shall be conquered. None shall challenge the Khalsa. All humanity shall become one.
    In the kingdom of the True King, Satjug shall be established.
    The Khalsa Panth shall rule. The arrows of death shall not touch them.
    The Army of the Timeless shall grow and spread like locusts.
    All shall wear vestments of blue; no one else shall be seen.
    Listen Qazi Rukan Din, The Singhs shall rule.
    The Unholy Sheikhs shall be destroyed. Pirs and Mureeds shall be no more.
    All shall recite the one name of the Lord. Then he shall come himself.
    The untrue shall not be able to see his glory.
    All humanity shall unite and he will distribute provinces.
    The Earth shall give food and the mountains shall give diamonds.
    Fruits of many kinds there shall be, upon the sight of the timeless.
    All shall recite VAHEGURU and achieve salvation.
    Many Dharamsalas (places of discussion) shall exist. The Koran and the Mosques shall vanish.
    The Lord shall manifest himself in body (as man).
    He will make all utter VAHEGURU. All Singhs shall flock under his banner.
    All shall know him as the True One. He will sit at the throne of Delhi.
    He will establish a kingdom of peace and no enemies will remain.
    Wherever the Khalsa turns his eye, the 14 realms shall tremble.
    For 14,000 years, this kingdom shall remain.
    Wealth will be collected and food shall be distributed.
    The naked and the starving shall all receive; no one will go without.
    Sayeth Nanak, Rukan Din, This is how it shall be.
    Whosoever reads the Karni Namah, his love with The Lord shall grow.
    The Word of the Timeless shall prevail. Those uttering falsehood shall not remain.
    After the effect of The Akaal, forests, mountains and the world shall see salvation.
    The Khalsa shall Rule. There will be no-one left to oppose them.
    All who are lost shall gain the safety of the Khalsa

    Spoken by the First Master

    First, Nanak went to Mecca;
    Medina he afterwards visited.
    The lord of Mecca and Medina,
    Kaarun, he made his disciple.
    When Nanak was about to depart,
    Kaarun, the fortunate, thus spoke:
    Now thou art about to go,
    But when wilt thou return?
    Then the Guru thus answered:
    When I put on my tenth dress
    I shall be called Gobind Singh;
    Then shall all Singhs wear their hair;
    They shall accept the 'Pahal' of the two-edged Sword
    Then shall the Khalsa be established;
    Then shall men exclaim 'Vaheguru'
    The four races shall become one and the same;
    The five weapons shall be worn by all.
    In Kalyug they shall array themselves in vestments of blue;
    The name of the Khalsa shall be everywhere.
    In the time of Aurangzeb
    The wondrous Khalsa shall arise.
    Then shall battles be waged,
    Endless war shall ensue,
    And fighting shall follow year after year.
    They shall place the name of Gobind Singh in their hearts.
    When many heads shall be rendered up,
    The Empire of the Khalsa shall prevail.
    First, they shall conquer Punjab;
    Then other countries shall be theirs;
    Hindustan and the North shall be possessed by them;
    Then the west shall bow to them.
    When they enter Khorasan,
    Kabul and Kandahar shall lie low.
    When Iran has been laid prostrate,
    Arabia shall be conquered and they shall march on to Mecca.
    Mecca shall be beheld,
    And Medina shall be seized.
    Mighty shall be the rejoicing,
    And all shall exclaim 'Vaheguru'.
    Unbelievers shall everywhere be destroyed;
    The holy Khalsa shall be exalted.
    Beasts and Birds shall tremble in the presence of the Lord.
    Men and Women shall everywhere call on God.
    The Earth, the Oceans and the Heavens shall call on God.
    By calling on the Guru shall men be blessed.
    Every faith shall become of the Khalsa;
    No other religion will remain.
    'Vaheguru' shall everywhere be repeated,
    And pain and trouble shall depart.
    In the Kalyug shall the Kingdom be established,
    Which Nanak received from the Lord.
    Worthless, I fall before God;
    Nanak, the slave, cannot comprehend the ways of the Lord.
    Thus replied Nanak to Kaarun's question.



    The Sau Sakhi (100 stories) is a book of predictions associated with Sikhism. It professes to be a conversation between Sahib Singh and Gurbakhsh Singh on the sayings of the tenth Guru. M.A MaCauliffe in his The Sikh Religion Vol V, states "It is held is great esteem by the Kukas - followers of Baba Ram Singh and is relied on by them as the main authority for their heresy." Bhai Santokh Singh in his writings sometimes gives Bhai Gurbakhsh Singh's communications to Sahib Singh as the basis of his history of the Gurus from the time of Guru Angad Dev Ji, but he makes no mention of the Sau Sakhi. Many dispute the authenticity of these compositions, but much is made of the couplets that makeup these stories by these sects. Many speculate that the second coming of Guru Gobind Singh Ji is a vindication of this Baba or that , if anything the second coming of Guru Gobind Singh Ji will be in the form of Kalki Avtar.

    One prophecy involves Guru Nanak Dev Ji foretelling the coming of the 11th Guru, another tells of Guru Gobind Singh Ji foretelling the coming of Baba Balak, another says that in the book Sau Sakhi it mentions the word ‘Ram’ so it must obviously mean Baba Ram Singh, another says that Guru Angad Dev Ji foretold the arrival of Baba Balak.
    Had the Guru’s nothing better to do then tell stories of the future, and how curious that they all involve " Baba Balak"....and NONE about GURU AMARDASS..GURU RAMDASS..GURU ARJUN ji and his shaheedee..Guru hargobind Ji and his wars...Guru Har rai..Guru Harkishan Ji and his early death....Guru Teg bahadur Ji and His martyrdom at Delhi...

    Let me make a prediction, there will be a lot more prophecies that will materialise, all concerning Baba Balak....and the rest is "his STORY....


    All such prophecies etc are popular with nihangs/sanatanists/brahminically inclined sants and deras..all looking to glorify the DEHDHAREE "GURU"....but .to the serious academically students of sikh history....these have not much value.

    There are two text refered to as Sau Sakhi which means hundred testimonies. It not that only Namdharis follow them.

    1st is Mangal Prakash by Bhai Ram Kaur, who later became Gurbax Singh Ji. It has written in it which proves that even before Tenth Master going to Hajur Sahib, Shri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, was respected as living Guru of Sikhs. Kavi Santokh Singh in Guru Pratap Suraj Granth Does writes that his account about the life of Tenth Master is as told by Baba Ram Kaur.

    Sau Sakhi has only a few Sakhis which talk of future, more Sakhis there talk about Sikh Laws and event in the life of Tenth Master.

    Language is full of symbolism, and just by taking literal meaning is often not OK. Like at one place it is written that Sikh should not study Arabic and Persian ,but without reading next line ie Sikh will not serve Turk, the proper context is not understood.(Term Muslim is used with respect while term Turk,which is a race of invaders, also called turani is not respected as in Islam racialism is not allowed).

    The second Sau Sakhi is Bijai Mukt Sakhi Dasavi. This part of Panj Sau Sakhi, which is said to be work of Tenth Master himself(we have lord Jesus as per new testament also making point clear with stories). Note worthy story in here is Tenth Master respecting the usage of beef by scavenger community.

    Akal Bless.
