Can anyone suggest me literature sources where I can find Sakhis on Guru Saheban?

I had once read a book written in Pwadhi by Bhai Vir Singh Ji (i think) and in it, he mentioned various sakhis that were related to guru ji 's ucharan of different verses from Gurbani. Last week I stumbled upon a sikh wiki page wherein the sakhi of Maskeen and Guru Nanak Dev ji was being told and how it is related to the verse "Sukhi Vasay Maskeenia"in Sukhmani Sahib. I believe it really made me feel connected to Gurbani and try to understand it a bit more than my humble brain could. If there are any sources where I could find Sakhis related to other verses and contexts for Gurbani, Kindly let me know!

I would request for understanding gurbani, please start with translations of Japuji Sahib and Kathas by devotees such as Sant Maskeen.

Sakhis are not real but allegorical accounts. I am very impressed by your desire to understand and learn. Wish you all the best.

following books are best as Sakhi sources
Janamsakhis
Manuscript versions of Puratan Janmsakhi: The earliest versions in manuscript are of (a) 1701 AD available in Moti Bagh, Rajbhavan Pustaklya, Patiala whose copy is available in (b) Sikh Reference Library, Sri Amritsar (Ms 5462). Other versions are a copy of (c) 1734 AD with Shamsher Singh Ashok, (d) a copy of 1757 AD with Baba Kuldip Singh Bedi of Batala and (e) a copy of 1772 AD (Ms No. 2310) in Khalsa College Amritsar and in (f) Bhasha Vibhag Punjab, Patiala, Ms 164: (g) The printed versions of Puratan Janamsakhi of Survey of India Press, Dehradun (1885 AD), (h) MA Manulife (1885) Gulshan Punjab Press, Rawalpindi and (j) Khalsa Samachar Press, Amritsar (1959) Other Janamsakhis include (k) Janam Sakhi Sodhi Meharban (2 Vols), Khalsa College, Amritsar, 1763-69 AD, (l)Janam Sakhi Paida Mokha also called of Bhai Bala Ms with Shamsher Singh Ashok. These Janamsakhis are found in print edited by Dr Kirpal Singh, Dr Surinder Singh Kohli, Shamsher Singh Ashok, Bhai Vir Singh, Dr. Piar Singh etc.

Kirpal Singh (Dr.) (ed.) Janamsakhis in Janamsakhi Prampara published by Punjabi University, Patiala containing edited versions of Puratan Janamsakhi (Janamsakhi Walaitwali), Janam Sakhi Bhai Bala, Janam Sakhi Meharban (Sach Khand Pothi and Pothi Har Ji) and Janamsakhi Bhai Mani Singh (Gian Ratnawali) are the most read. Puratan Janamsakhi edited by Bhai Vir Singh and later by Shamsher Singh Ashok, however, remains to be the most reliable and have been referred in addition to the other Janamsakhi versions contained in Dr Kirpal Singh Janasakhi Prampara furthering this research.

It is inappropriate to presume that anyone reading a JanamSakhi or wanting to read a Sakhi doesn't have understanding of gurbani
