    Hey all,
    I was reading the Sri Guru Granth Sahib today trying to understand some quotes picked up from a book I was reading until coming across a word I didnt quite understand.

    Now, I understand that each quote or paragraph starts from a Guru or a bhagat, which in turn tells you that the respective person wrote it.

    To cut it short, my question is what or who is 'kal sahaar'? it comes several times in the Sri Guru Granth Sahib. Here are some quotes I managed to find:

    O Kal Sahaar, chant the Praises of Lehnaa throughout the seven continents; He met with the Lord, and became Guru of the World. ||1||Page 1391, Line 5

    O Kal Sahaar, chant the Praises of Lehnaa throughout the seven continents; He met with the Lord, and became Guru of the World. ||2||

    O Kal Sahaar, chant the Praises of Lehnaa throughout the seven continents; He met with the Lord, and became Guru of the World. ||3||

    Kal Sahaar chants His Glorious Praises.

    He is the Destroyer of fear, the Eradicator of the pains of others. Kall Sahaar the poet utters Your Praise, O Guru.


    Does 'kal' mean death or something to do with death? Also, can you tell me who wrote these verses

    Thank you :)

    Re: Whats 'Kal sahaar'

    These quotes are from the Bhattan de swaiyaeh..

    Kal Sahaar is one of the BHATTS who wrote these poems in Guru Granth Ji sahib.

    These swaiyahs can be found towards the end of Guru Granth ji Sahib.

    There are all together 10 bhatts.

    [Kal Sahaar was one of the Bhats whose 54 Sawayas were included in Shri Guru Granth Sahib by the 5th Guru who compiled The Granth.
     
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!
