A special section highlighting Dasam Guru Durbar had to be included within this website to destroy the myth that it is not an authentic work of Akali Nihang Guru Gobind Singh ji.

Sach Khand Hazoor Sahib, Nander
Adi Guru Durbar and Dasam Guru Durbar are kept side-by-side
as is the 300-year old tradition amongst the Akali Nihang Singh Khalsa

Many mainstream Sikh scholars have rejected, or are actively surpressing Dasam Guru Durbar as a sacred text for their own political narrow-minded egotistical desires and claim this text was never regarded as 'Guru'.

We now shed some light on this issue with facts.

In the early 1970s, Santokh Singh (a Sikh scholar) from Chandigarh wrote a letter to the Shromani Gurudwara Parbandak Committee (S.G.P.C.) quering the authenticity of the Dasam Guru Durbar as being of Akali Nihang Guru Gobind Singh ji's hand. On 3rd August 1973, he received a reply from the S.G.P.C stating:

‘Chritter Pkhyan which are entered in the Dasam Granth, they are not the work of Guru Gobind Singh. They are ancient mythological stories of Hinduism.’
(‘Dasam Granth Bareh Chonveh Lekh’ by Principle Harbhajan Singh, P.122-123)

The above reply was sanctioned by the then S.G.P.C. Jathedar (commander) of the Akal Takht, Sadhu Singh Bhaura, Chet Singh (Head Granthi of Golden Temple), Kirpal Singh Granthi and Sohan Singh (Granthi of Golden Temple).

Yet these same individuals did not take into consideration that within their daily liturgy of prayers, and, within the Khalsa initiation ceremony, they actualy employ scripture from Treh Chritter ('Kabio Bach Benanti Chaupee Sahib').

The composition commonly referred to as 'Chaupee Sahib' amongst mainstream Sikhs is actually the conclusion to the 'Treh Charittar'.

Should the recommendation of the S.G.P.C. be put into practice by the masses, and accepted as 'Hukam' (law), the result would be:
a) ALL rehitnaamas (attributed to the warriors of Akali Nihang Guru Gobind Singh ji) would be invalid
b) The 'Amrit Sanchar' (initiation of new warriors into the Khalsa) would be invalid
c) 'Rehras Sahib' as recited by ALL Sikhs every evening would be invalid
d) The 'Ardas' would be invalid
e) Over 300 years of documented history would be seen as false
f) The knowledge of mighty Sikhs such as Akali Nihang Baba Deep Singh Ji Shaheed, Bhai Mani Singh Ji Shaheed, Akali Nihang Baba Binod Singh Ji, Akali Nihang Baba Durbara Singh, Akali Nihang Baba Phoola Singh Ji, Akali Nihang Jassa Singh Ahluwalia, Akali Nihang Jassa Singh Ramgharia, Akali Nihang Baba Kapur Singh, Baba Gurbachan Singh Bhindrawaleh who ALL acknowledged Dasam Guru Durbar would be considered as being false
