The difference in Dasam Guru Durbar and Sarbloh Guru
Durbar is that although Bir Ras (warrior essence)
is born of Dasam Guru Durbar, it is Sarbloh Guru Durbar which gives
an individual's warrior essence an everlasting, final and complete
lethal cutting edge.
With contemplation of Dasam Guru
Durbar, ‘Chandi chr jandi te uttar jandi heh’,
meaning 'spirit of war comes and goes'. With the contemplation of
Sarbloh Guru Durbar, ‘Chandi sda chri rhendi heh’
meaning, one is always intoxicated in the spirit of war against

Thus it was from the Sarbloh Guru Durbar that the
Khalsa of the Misl Period drew its greater strength and prowess.
That is why Sarbloh Guru Durbar was the most secret
and guarded of Sikh religious texts. Englishmen
like Malcolm easily managed to procure the Adi Guru Granth and take
it to Calcutta to study it. Colebrooke even managed to get his scheming
hands on the Dasam Guru Durbar as well.
However, the Sarbloh Guru Granth Ji because of it
being guarded deep in the sanctuary of the Akali Nihang Dals, nevermind
getting a hand on it, no invader never even heard of its existance.

Akali Nihang Singhs, Nirmalas, Udhasis and Seva Panthis
all traditionally acknowledge Sarbloh Guru Durbar as Gurbani
(writings) of Dasam Patsha (Tenth King Akali Nihang Guru Gobind
The lowly puritanical Tat Khalsa Singh Sabhias apart
from Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha in general never got around to commenting
on the Sarbloh Guru Durbar. The present day offspring of Tat Khalsa
Singh Sabha, the S.G.P.C.
is also quiet about Sarbloh Guru Durbar. The language of Sarbloh
Guru Durbar is so difficult to understand, and the text until recently
was also not available to modern Sikh scholars.
