    Do you have a English translation? In the past after researching the origins of bhai kahn singh I've been troubled..
    Have you ever read any controversies?

    I've read that he was a proponent of the idea that guru gobind Singh Ji left hazur Sahib and continued under the name baba ajapal singh..

    I don't know the veracity or truth in it but it warrants considering and researching further which I am trying to do

    What I find interesting is that it's not spoken about.. I've always been interested in how organised religions come in to being.. How certain histories / narratives become unquestionable. I believe that elevating certain sources above others are a product of politicised motivations. So mahan kosh as a academic reference book which is considered definitive may have been written by someone who didn't actually believe in Guru maneo Granth.. The absence of any discussion or mention of on any online sources, or 'official sources' ie. SGPC. Is very interesting.. In the same way when the rahit maryada was formally published nobody asks where does the authority come from, what are the standards that have been used..

    @sukhsingh ji, this is a million dollar question... Reading, contemplating & understanding the deeper meaning of Gurbani ourselves is the only solution... then we can evaluate these histories/narratives using the litmus test of gurmat values and principles laid down in SGGS, our only Guru... and then it becomes that much easier to make up our own mind on these histories & narratives thrust upon our consciousness by nefarious powers.

    Let us keep asking questions... answers to these questions may not too far off our grasp...

    Glad to meet you at SPN! :)
