  1. Send me your e-mail on a PM and i'll mail it to you. An awesome analysis
  2. Have you read Louis Fenech's analysis of the Ghazals of Bhai Nand Lal and the Persian poet Hafez? It's from 1994
  3. That's really interesting!!!!
  4. It appears to be in the other so it's probably just in this bir pakhyaan Vol II.pdf
  5. Related/Sri Dasam Granth Sahib Ji/Complete-analysis-of-Sri-Charitropakhyan.pdf
  6. It is Ayurvedic?
  7. Is the 325th 'missing' in the text in general or just in this saroop?
  8. On a more straight forward notion of the story, it also appears to open a discussion on how religion is and can be misused for one's own benefit.. In this charitar it shows how the man is dressed as a Guru as a way to 'hide' a relationsship. On the outside, him being at her palace then looks legitimate. In today's world we often see how religion is used as a business to make money. Money is at the core but religion is the garb. Or how politics of opression is construed in religios terms..... In this story, a relationsship is at the core but religion is the garb.
  9. Interesting and sharp observations!. As we've discussed in the earlier charitars we've seen how they often follow one another by theme and plot... This charitar comes after the notorious Anoop Kaur stories (21,22,24) so it appears that this charitar here indirectly is continuing themes of the earlier charitar (Guru and shish) by opening up a general discussion on relationships and what kind of alliances can be made - what is dharmic, what is adharmic and what is in between (might be okay but frowned upon by society etc)...
  10. Interesting. What is the Mahabharat in generel? I can't imagine the entire book to be about warfare only?
  11. I think in general all Granth's were protected. Malcolm in the early 1800s writes that it was extremely difficult to obtain copies of Sikh scripture. Finally he got them from the Nirmale who seem to have been more liberal in this regard. We can imagine then that the Nihangs were more protective.
  12. That is the tradition around it - that it was compiled in Hazoor Sahib and entered Punjab around the Maharaja Ranjit Singh period. I think Pandit Tara Singh Narotam is the first Sikh to mention the Sarbloh Granth around the 1860s or 1870s. Before that it is neither mentioned nor quoted from.
