Lord Singh: The importance of the Guru Granth Sahib to Sikhs

The metaphor ‘living Guru’ emphasises the importance of the Guru Granth Sahib to Sikhs. Unfortunately, as we see in some gurdwaras, some Sikhs take this too literally. I think it is better to describe it as the embodiment of the Gurus’ teachings and the SOLE perpetual guidance for all Sikhs. We emphasise the importance of the Guru Granth Sahib every time we conclude the Ardas with: ‘Saab Sikhan ku hukum ha Guru Manio Granth.’

With this clear injunction in mind, why the deafening silence from Sikh leaders and Sikh organisations about the antics of those in Patna Sahib who have placed the cleverly named Dasam Granth alongside the Guru Granth Sahib? Why the silence over the action of the Jathedhar there asking us, on the 350th anniversary of the birth of Guru Gobind Singh, to ignore the Guru’s clear injunction on the primacy of the Guru Granth Sahib and say, ’Guru manio Granth and Dasam Granth’.

Those who have studied the Dasam Granth will know that for the most part it consists of praises of Hindu avtars, denigration of women and frankly pornographic tales. Could there be a greater insult to our Gurus and the world Sikh community than placing such writings, wholly contrary to the Gurus’ teaching, alongside the Guru Granth Sahib?

Sikhs should wake up and ask, why has the government of India spent hundreds of crores of rupees printing and distributing the Dasam Granth, other than to dilute and Hinduise Sikh teachings? Something the Punjab government did a few years earlier for similar motives.

The Network of Sikh Organisations UK (NSO), has consistently emphasised that the Guru Granth Sahib is the sole religious guidance for Sikhs and we should shun all sants, babas and now politicians and self-seeking Jathedhars who would have us believe otherwise. This is the position of the NSO.

What though is the position of the Sikh Council, The Sikh Federation, the Sikh Network, Ramgarhia Council, City Sikhs, British Sikh Federation, Nishkam Seva Jatha (whose leader Mohinder Singh is in Patna) and similar organisations in the USA, Canada and other parts of the world. The world Sikh community is entitled to clear unequivocal answers and action from those who claim to represent them. Silence also speaks volumes.

While more than 75% of the Dasam Granth is wholly contrary to the teachings of the Gurus, there are some compositions which could well be those of Guru Gobind Singh. In the 1930s and 1940s a committee of prominent scholars looked at these and included them in the Sikh Reyat Maryada in 1945. They are in consonance with the teachings of the Guru Granth Sahib and form part of our daily Nit Nem. The authors of the Dasam Granth have borrowed these teachings and placed them in their Dasam Granth. This does not mean that the Dasam Granth as a whole should be considered to be on a par with the Guru Granth Sahib.

In the opening composition of the Guru Granth Sahib, Guru Nanak emphasies that there is only one Creator who is above all notions of human birth. In contrast, a large part of the Dasam Granth is devoted to the exploits of 24 so-called INCARNATIONS of the Hindu God Vishnu. The Guru Granth Sahib stresses the dignity and complete equality of women, while much of the Dasam Granth is devoted to the denigration of women, often in the crudest of language, which brings us back to my initial posting.

Should Sikhs and Sikh organisations stand idly by when crude attempts are made to give equal credence to the teachings of Dasam Granth and the Guru Granth Sahib, thus distorting Sikh teachings and diluting them with Hindu mythology? The Network of Sikh Organisations (NSO) has already stated its opposition to this attack on our teachings. Encouragingly Sikhs in Canada, Malaysia, the USA and the Akhand Kirtani Jatha have also voiced their concerns.

I again appeal to other UK Sikh organisations so far silent, such as the Sikh Council, the Sikh Federation (and its offshoot the Sikh Network), City Sikhs, Ramgharia Council, Sikh Education and Welfare Association (SEWA), the Sikh Missionary Society, Nishkaam Sevak Jatha and others in the UK and abroad to stand alongside us and use their clout to condemn this attack on our religion.

Dr Indarjit Singh, who carries the title The Lord Singh of Wimbledon CBE, is a Crossbench Life peer sitting in the House of Lords since 12 October 2011. He is an active member of the Sikh community, including campaigning vigorously since 1984 for those responsible for this genocide against Sikhs to be brought to justice. He writes this note as the director of the Network of Sikh Organisations UK

  1. Only Bansavalinama nothing else to support falsehood! You have no shame calling yourself a Sikh after that???????
    Brahmanism biased Chibber can be taken as “evidence”?
    And what about his other ideas for who adviced Guru Ji to prepare Amrit AND OTHER BRAHMINICAL BIAS? Pick and choose IS A LIER’S POLICY also claimed by chibber.
    Chaupa Chibber’s” rehitnama” says that DOUBLE EDGE SWORD PAHUL CANNOT BE ADMINISTERED TO A WOMAN
    AND BUDDHA DAL STILL PRACTICE THAT
    SO WHAT? So as usual kamalmaar at it.
    They are biased Brahmins who call themselves Sikhs. They are Sikhs of Kama Sutra AND NOTHING ELSE THEN
    They will not explain how is that P this alleged Guru writing is also found in the three purans.

    They pretend the purans do not exist”””

  2. It looks like you cannot see in one eye or hear in one.You do NOT “see” the evidence at all.You must be deaf and blind.You are also very naïve, trying to be a master of intrigues, you do NOT understand.

    Of course you “do not see” what you see, even it is under your nose.You can claim, but can you provide evidence.It is starkly naked and plenty of evidence the GOI through RSS is providing to train and send out dera preachers, to undermine Sikhs ethos.

    Indarjit does know a lotter better than you and most of us do know a lot more than you are simply waffling about.

    If there is “a lot of evidence” provide one piece of information then. Otherwise who can’t claim that Global Sikh Council is being sponsered and paid for by the Indian Government?

    Indarjit Singh should know better than to throw accusations arounds.

    It is far more weird too, you attach so much importance to a brahman book of unknown origins, and absolutely full of porno kamasutric stories and lies,like the porno bachitter natak.

    It is alos mamazing you are beleiveing in a book that is brahman written , but using words like “Satguru bajho hor kachi bani”, if it’s not in Guru Granth Sahib then…but happily believe in bachitter natak!clearly confused, are you NOT?

    YOU of course do NOT understand between FACTUAL SIKH history and Gurbani in Guru Granth sahib,and rattling on aimlessly!

    NOPE, I did NOT claim Guru Granth sahib is not poora, it is YOU who claims that by preaching about bachitter natak…and trying to prove Indarjit Singh is wrong, when he says, we have Guru Granth sahib, we do NOT need another book.

    But your vision is very limited too, that you do not see the funding of the Indian govt to create confusuion among Sikhs, like you are confused, and the mad man Paramjit and his sggsa.

    It’s weird how you attach so much importance to “agia bhae akal ki” claiming that it “is supposed to have been said” but yet have absolutely no proof. “Satguru bajho hor kachi bani”, if it’s not in Guru Granth Sahib then it’s kachi. The Guru’s didn’t need it, so we don’t need it.

    Why are you trying to claim that Guru Granth Sahib is not pooran Guru?

  3. If there is “a lot of evidence” provide one piece of information then. Otherwise who can’t claim that Global Sikh Council is being sponsered and paid for by the Indian Government?

  4. THIS IS RESPONSE TO KAMALMAAR , who tried to respond to Indarjit Singh

    The sentences begins with Indrajit’s, then kamlmaar’s response,in two brackets followed by mine in three brackets.

    This is a statement by Indarjit Singh (Lord Singh of Wimbeldon) about the Sri Dasam Granth Sahib sent out on social media. Dr. Kamalroop Singh replied to the points listed below (His answers in italics and highlighted in brown).

    1. There were many challenges to the Gurus and their teaching during the lifetime of the Gurus.
    There were but the Guru Khalsa Panth has always known what their Guru’s wrote as is clear from 18th and 19th century Sikh literature, all of which quote from the Sri Dasam Granth Sahib, as Sri Mukhvak
    10

    1]]]Kamlapoop is as usual being coyly economical with factual truth of history.There is NO book in history until 1895 called dsm potha.The bachitter natak was rejected by the Khalsa panth from day one.Thus that it played no role in the CKD preparation of Maryada, 1913, and the 1925 Gurduara Act, nor in the maryada prepared by the Khalsa panth subsequently between 1927-1945

    2. When Guru Gobind Singh added the compositions of Guru Teg Bahadhur to the Adi Granth, he deliberately excluded any verses that he may have written himself.
    The contents of the Sri Dasam Granth Sahib by Guru Gobind Singh are not for Bhakti like the Adi Sri Guru Granth Sahib is, according to Chhibbar the Guru said ‘[the Dasam Granth Sahib] is my play or khed, and hence why I have not included it in’.

    2]]]Again kamalpoops kamlpoona is being exhibited.His preposterously comical and twisted claims, about Chibber and bansawali shows total and basic ignorance of the Sikh history.KS Chibber’s bansawali is grounded in a brahman background.He also claims his family taught Guru Gobind Singh how to prepare the khande bate da pahul.. It is a rapid account, in rather incipient Punjabi verse, of the ten Gurus and of Banda Singh Bahadur and some other Sikhs.Description of historical events and MYTHOLOGICAL elements overlap his work.KS Chibber has tried to prove the superiority of the Brahmans over the Sikhs which may be due to his own Brahman ancestry. In any case, this is contrary to the principles of Sikhism which rejects caste.

    What this habitual lying Kamla has chosen not to share is — KS Chibber says, “At this time the Guru GRANTH Sahib is our Guru (i.e. prophet teacher)… Recognize him alone as the Guru`s true Sikh who accepts as eternally true the word enshrined in.the GRANTH He who abides by the word in the GRANTH , he alone will be the follower approved.”

    3. Guru Gobind Singh, aware of the danger of different sants, babas and cults diverting or distorting the Gurus’ teachings, decreed that the Adi Granth with the addition of Guru Teg Bahadhur’s verses,were complete in themselves and would henceforth be referred to as the Guru Granth Sahib,

    3]].Nobody disputes that Adi Sri Guru Granth Sahib is the Guru, but to say Sikhs have only one scripture and all things can be drawn from that scripture is absurd. That excludes the nitnem, ardas, history, and other such important Sikh principles, including the 5 Ks.

    3]]]For a person with a dubious Phd, Kamla has forgotten that he and his likes do dispute.He already contradicted himself within point 2. I am not sure anyone understands what he is trying to say in point 3.While he heavily qoutes KS ChIbber, he omits with intent to conceal, that KS Chibber says, “At this time the Guru GRANTH Sahib is our Guru (i.e. prophet teacher)… Recognize him alone as the Guru`s true Sikh who accepts as eternally true the word enshrined in.the GRANTH He who abides by the word in the GRANTH , he alone will be the follower approved.”

    He is very confused as usual, between the Guru Granth and panthic led maryada, guided by Guru Granth sahib.two different issues.

    4. In 1708, Guru Gobind Singh formerly installed the Guru Granth Sahib as complete and sole guidance for all Sikhs. [Guru manio Granth]

    4]]The same history that records this momentous event also refers to shabads of Sri Dasam Granth Sahib throughout it, eg Panth Parkash, Giani Gian Singh, from which ‘agia bhe akal ki’ comes from.

    4]]]Kamala, shows total ignorance of his acclaimed “knowledge” of this momentous history.Gian Singh is a third generation writer ,born in 1822, [114 years after Guru Gobind Singh ] Gian Singh admits he is writing from heresay and what he has heard from his family and friends.Suraj Parkash is largely based on oral history.He also admits that Pandit Tara Singh Narotam, a renowned scholar of the NIRMALA school, whom he acknowledges in his writings as his literary mentor.

    By the way, Agia bhyii akal Ki , tabhi chlayo panth does NOT originate from panth parkash, but Bhai Chaupa Singh’s Rehatnama.Gian Singh may have quoted the original rehatnama.But this verse from the rehatnama was added into the Bachiter Natak, when it was corrected via the Sodhak Committee, under Manna Singh in 1895.It’s origin does not lie in the BN.He needs to re-read history again and get his bluffs right,oh 8 other compositions were removed from the 32 different colourful BNs collected.

    5. In a verse following our Ardas, the above sentiment is put as an edict, or hukum, binding on all Sikhs.

    5]This is not from the Guru Granth Sahib but from the above text, which quotes heavily from the Dasam Granth Sahib. If you say it is inaccurate then you also bring into question the gaddi to Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

    5]]]The ardas was developed, by the Panth on guidance of Gurbani,primararily from GURU GRANTH SAHIB,recognised hukamnamas, and the rehatnamas that agreed with Gurbani.The BN, was never involved.shey shey such white lies???

    6. To accord other writings or scriptures equal reverence to the Guru Granth Sahib, would be a betrayal of the above mentioned hukum.

    6′]]Again its your own paranoia that anyone says they are equal, parkash of Dasam Granth Sahib is always lower than Adi Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

    6]]]The seating of the BN, even if lower was NEVER in any main stream Gurduaras.It is your obsessed imagination

    Snatani derawadhi Gurduaras.Some mahants, and lately the newly named tksaal, who claim false origins, and uneducated, with misled nihangs and relying on oral heresay traditions may have had the copies, but how they sat that is NOT the maryada of the Panth, nor ever practised.

    7. The opening words of the Guru Granth Sahib remind us that there is only one Supreme Being. This is a clear rejection of the Hindu belief in a of a pantheon of gods and goddesses.

    7]]The same theme is found throughout Sri Dasam Granth Sahib.

    7]]]Oh ho, this KAMALCOOP,has a Phd in open white lies.There is NO same theme.

    Guru Granth sahib says Ekon’kaarsatnam krta purakh nirbhau, nirvair akaal moorat ajuni sebh bhang –ONLY ONE PRIMAL BEING -the description is supported in the manglacharan.

    Bachitter natak, says,it’s isht,is in a form, as it is described “..with large red eyes, and large piercing sharp teeth,that eats human flesh.It drinks alcohol, and it uses alcohol to initiate a Sikh!!!

    8. More than one third of the writings of the Dasam Granth involve the exploits and praise of various Hindu deities.

    8]]How did you expect the Guru to inspire the common Hindu to take up arms against the Moghuls? Guru Granth Sahib is also full of mythological references. Infact the second word is Sanskrit – Oankar….

    8]]]Cobblers, again!This exposes Kamlas lack of belief in Guru Granth sahib, and his melioration of any understanding of Guru Granth sahib,or Sikhs history.

    The references in Guru Granth sahib to mythology are not vilely and repungently descriptive as in the Bachitter Natak.
    The word Oankar, is different from Omkar , but what has sanskrit got to do here.

    9. Another third of the Dasam Granth involves the denigration of women and the ‘wiles’ of women, often in stark pornographic terms-in complete contradiction of Sikh teachings of dignity and complete equality.

    9]]That is how you might see it, but in fact Chaupai Sahib comes from this. There are tales in it from the Bible, Torah, Qur’an, Hitupdesh, Purans, Alif-Laila and so on. Over 50 are about the bravery of women, like the Queen of Holland, and another 50 are about the weaknesses of men.

    9]]]With clear descript words of lowest vile in nature, Kamala does not see it that way.He is now trying damage limitation by drawing the attention away from the contents of the BN-the charitropakyan and blaming books of other faiths, which is irrelevant here.What other faiths have or NOT, is not for a Sikhs to comment upon.

    The tales in BN are purely of kamasutric nature and definition.They are descriptive of sexual acts.Many deviant sexual acts, with incestous relationships being condoned.In the BN, their God mahakaal openly admist that it regretted creating women.

    Its is an open challenge to kamla, to get his wife and mother to sit down and be sermonised by a stranger, who should explain those meanings to his female relatives.How abt that?

    10. The Dasam Granth was compiled by Hindu Brahmins from a variety of writings at least 50 years after Guru Gobind Singh.
    10]]Please provide the historical evidence and manuscript evidence here.

    The compilation of this BN starts in 1769, with Sukha Singh from Patna, who commenced the BN part in poetry.Poets Ram, Sham kal etc, repeatedly use their names to clearly point out, they are the poets composing.

    The same charitropakahyan/other brahmanic literature is clearly; and evidently copied from the three hindu purans- Sri Markandiye, Sri Pad and sri Mad,Shive’s purans.One can see this in the current purans too, so it is not as evidence is not present.But ignorance does not help such fibbers.

    11. A small proportion of the verses in the Dasam Granth are in general consonance with the teachings of the Guru Granth Sahib and could be lost writings of Guru Gobind Singh.

    11]]Please provide the evidence as above. This view was given by the infamous tout of the British, Teja Singh of Bhasauria who died tankhiayah from the Khalsa panth. See Dasam Granth Nirnaya (1919).

    11]]]Teja Singh Bhasaur, Professor Gurmukh Singh and Giani Dit Singh were sat up, by Khem Singh bedi, who was working closely with Dayanand of Arya samaJ, in shudhi krn of Sikhs, into hinduism.Dayanand had lost three debates with G Dit Singh and was bent on avenging his insults.
    Sadly, like the snatani lobby now, Khem Singh Bedi who always wore a janeu and a Kirpan, and wrote the book HUM HINDU Hain, managed to influence the Mahant controlled Akal Takhat to “punish” these three,for raising their voices against the false book, activities of Khem Singh etc.
    One hundered years later , the panth has recognised it’s folly and with drawn its descison.Conveniently, this snantani kamal, forgets.

    12. In 1930’s and early 1940’s, a committee of renowned Sikh scholars, after much consultation and analysis, agreed that these banis, listed in the 1945 Sikh Reyat Maryada, should be included in Sikh worship. The rest of the misleadingly and mischievously titled Dasam Granth was unceremoniously rejected as wholly contrary to Sikh teaching.

    12]]This is completely untrue, in fact the Sri Akal Takht Sahib in 1898 printed the complete bani, and has celebrated it ever since.

    12]]]THIS is a totally WHITE LIE, by this erring kamalmaar! The Akal Takhat did NOT print anything.The SODHAK committee, under Khem Singh Bedi’s, Gurmat Parchar Mission printed the MAN LED RECORRECTED and MISCHIEVIOUSLY SIMILARLY plagarised book, BN.

    There were over 120 SINGH Sabhas, under Lahore, and Gian DIT Singh etc>

    But this Gurmat parchar Mission in Amritsar was led by Khem Singh Bedi,was in league/cahoots with the British, Hindu ARYA samaj, and dera mahants, who were in control of Sikh Gurduaras, and had the intention continue to mislead and fool Sikhs, while controlling their Gurduaras and coffers.The arya samaj found the BN ideal to break the Sikhs, and reinitiate them back into hinduism.

    But fools like like kamalmaar, tksaal, jhoothnak and Anurogi, whose own daughter shaves her legs, son uses tikka on forehead, etc etc, we have photos to prove, cannot get this fake book out of the thick skulls.

    If indeed, Guru ji wrote this sexual folklore, when bestowing Guruship upon the Guru Granth sahib, in 20 words, he says agia….guru maniyo Granth;why could he not say in nine words, aa vi main likhya, je lorr bhaii parr lio..????

    No man has any jusrisdiction to declare or claim any bani outside what Guru ji has commanded.

    Finally, it is noticeble,from below, kamalmaar writes equally long, sometimes longer, essays, to cite his self importance, praise and induce others to assume, his academia is very very large, when it really is quite shallow.Readers may like to judge his self praise.Oh I only speak 10 languages.

    About Me
    My name is Dr. Kamalroop Singh, I am a Sikh and a member of the Khalsa, and belong to the Nihang Singh order. I began my journey back in 1995, when I met some inspirational Sikhs. I have been reading about and practising as a Sikh from a young age, I took initiation into the Khalsa in 1999. I have travelled around India and stayed with the Nihang Singhs and Sants, and I also took basic Santhia from the Dam Dami Taksal in Amritsar.
    After finishing my degree in Chemistry I completed an MPhil and PhD in Sikh Studies. My chosen subject was the Dasam Granth Sahib, my thesis was titled ‘Dasam Granth Re-examined’. A book titled ‘Dasam Granth Questions and Answers’ has been published which was written with a colleague, please see it at http://www.archimedespress.co.uk.
    I am an expert linguist and have worked for the Crown Prosecution Services and taught languages at the School of African and Oriental Studies. I have been a consultant to a number of museums and galleries around the world. I regularly travel and teach about related subjects around the world.

  5. oh by the way, you are bursting your own bubbles….you obviously think small within the bubble…you need to think outside the bubbles that I have bursted for you to get very excited abt .You are very naïve individual,you think too much within bubbles….think out of the box, not read it in black and white, understand the Guru Granth sahib..listen to its message…the issue is NOT bani , there is no kachi bani and pakki bani-bursting your blotted bubble…there is simply bani ..or NOT bani.dont get into the web and mind set of dearwadhi babas.

  6. Kulwant sian,there is a lot of evidence the Indian govt through its agencies has spent millions to support the bachiter natak- the correct name.The RSS is doing it wel, where do you think the RSS gets it’s funding from?

    the agiyya bhaii akal ki is in the rehatnamas.and subsequently plagiarised into the bachitter natak.

    Not everything is mentioned in the Guru Granth sahib.The Sikh history is NOT.Neither is 4 gurus bani in the Guru Granth sahib, but we take the ardas of “das guru sahib an di atamak jot …”but all Sikh maryada is taken by guidance from Guru Granth sahib.

    Do NOT LOOK for anything INSIDE Guru Granth sahib , look for what its guidance is.

    It is for simple idol or ritual worship under rumallas….it is our teacher , you are making the same mistake like many …looking in it, not learning and be guided by it.

  7. “kamalmaar” my points about Lord Singh are simply a question to his statement ” the indian govt have spent millions on promoting Dasam Granth”. What evidence is there of this?

  8. What proof is there that Guru Gobind Singh said Guru maneyo granth? If Guru Sahib had said this surely it would have been recorded in Granth Sahib? If it is not recorded in GranthSahib then it is kachi bani. Sorry to burst your bubble “kamalmaar” but if it’s not recorded in Granth Sahib, then we have no need to read or recite it.

    Is “eka granth” not applicable here?

  9. This article is relevant totally .What is is uncalled for is the ego led uncouthly and unsightly ugly sggsa deviancy.It is very apparent some these commenting here are bachitri synpathiser ,not out if guru cause but individual friebdship loyalties to the biggest liar of sggsa paramjit ,who in turn is pleasing his derawadhi masters who have their take rss at nagpur.

    When the guru gas dictated agiys bhii.. Who are these little rats brainwashed eith man made tune to reeat whst they have never read .Period

  10. Kulwant si,’an your points are totally out of context and point ,without any connect or relevance to indarjits view.

    The agiya bhaii akal is suposed to been said by Guru Gobind Singh and recorded in bhai chaupa singh’s rehatnama,but subsequently copied into the bachiter natak in 1895,when man fiddled with the book.After thhat gave it a false title dsm granth.

    Your qoutations from SGGSahib sre out of context,out of connection,irelevant and foolishly misinterpretated to mislead readers,with copiusly evil intent.

    Have you ever read Guru Granth sahib,or simply been instructed what to write?

    You still have not done any job despite instructions shows just how uncouthly and ignorantly you made good in lying

  11. I have followed keenly Lord Indarjit Singh and have much respect and admiration for him. This article is uncalled for and a colossal mistake. “Jal bilove jal……” (SGGS)

  12. Lord Indarjit Singh says: “Those who have studied the Dasam Granth will know that for the most part it consists of praises of Hindu avtars…”

    I haven’t studied Dasam Granth but read this line every day as part of Nitnem. I suspect that Lord Indarjit Singh reads it as well : “Ram Rahim puran quran enek kahai mat ek na manyo” or ” mai na ganesha pritham manouw, kishan bishen kabhi na dhiou” (Ram, rahim Puran and Quran give many teachings but i do not accept one of them,” and “i will not worship ganesh in the beginning, I never worship Kishan or Vishnu…”

    Sikhs should wake up and ask, why has the government of India spent hundreds of crores of rupees printing and distributing the Dasam Granth, other than to dilute and Hinduise Sikh teachings? Something the Punjab government did a few years earlier for similar motives.

    What proof is there that the Indian govt (especially given the two lines above) would spend hundreds of crores of rupees printing and distributing the Dasam Granth.

    These are allegations not worthy of Lord Singh’s elevated status.

  13. Lord Indarjit Singh says: “We emphasise the importance of the Guru Granth Sahib every time we conclude the Ardas with: ‘Saab Sikhan ku hukum ha Guru Manio Granth.’”

    Which Guru said this line and where is it written?”
