I removed my thanks. Did not pick up criticism of Dr. Jasbir Singh Mann. Dr. Mann has written many many excellent works of sound scholarship. -- but I don't actually think Sarangi was criticizing in more than a general way. Benefit of the doubt. Sarangi why not tell us what your thinking was when you posted :sarcasm:

Both articles are well written but I have to wonder.....why complicate things? Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji contains everything we could possibly need!

Seekr9 ji

Dr. Jasbir Singh Mann has written many articles with an eye to the lack of evidence for the argument that Dasam Granth is Gurbani, and/or should have equal parkash with Sri Guru Granth Sahib. He has written these articles without commenting further. I am almost positive he would agree with you.

There is no doubt in everyone mind that guru granth sahib ji is the only holy scripture of sikhism.There are a little people saying otherwise but as I said only a little, as compared to the ones who belive in SGGS ji. The Discussions in the internet forum are surely going to help but I think awareness compaign has be at grassroot level, in the villages, among the masses. Its the masses who the ant-sikh elements gather on occasions and try to project them as their strength. Thats the real area where lot of work is needed
