    Nope. As far as I know, none of the panj mel exist today

    The Mina tradition eventually died out during the 1800s - I dont think it was a competitive strike at Guru Granth Sahib but rather an indication of Sikh supremacy in literature and influence.
  3. It made me think of this shabad: ਰਾਜਾ ਨਿਆਉ ਕਰੇ ਹਥਿ ਹੋਇ ॥ The king administers justice only if his palm is greased. ਕਹੈ ਖੁਦਾਇ ਨ ਮਾਨੈ ਕੋਇ ॥੩॥ No one is moved by the Name of God. ||3|| ਮਾਣਸ ਮੂਰਤਿ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਨਾਮੁ ॥ O Nanak, they are human beings in form and name only; ਕਰਣੀ ਕੁਤਾ ਦਰਿ ਫੁਰਮਾਨੁ ॥ by their deeds they are dogs - this is the Command of the Lord's Court.
  4. Purchase Nirmala writings

    The Sarkuvatali Granth has been translated by Kamalpreet Singh Pardeshi Nirmala from the UK. He is currently translating the Chanakya Niti from the Guru darbaar.
  5. Gurfateh check out this online store of nirmala writings! http://www.jsks.biz/Books-Buy-Online/Vedanta-Philosophy/
  6. I think the point the minister is trying to give the king by this tale is: Just as the Raja in this story has been reduced to a position of an animal, - so too have you been reduced in your status as a king. Instead of being engaged in royal and governmental duties (as kings are supposed to), you have engaged yourself in trivial drama involving your own family and dynasty that you are about to destroy..You are reduced as a king - the dirt of this world is being thrown at you and you are eating it
  7. Aurangzeb

    very unlikely
  8. Dasam Granth has many references to Kama Sutra literature, - Akal Ustat comes to mind. And the Kama Sutra writings were also translated in the Guru's darbaar.
  9. Harjas Pothi

    No because it is from the early 1800s
  10. Also note in the Zafarnama how the Guru scolds Aurangzeb for blindly following his advisors who were misleading him and giving him wrong information about what's going on in punjab.
  11. Harjas Pothi

    not at all. It's from the early reign of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. It belongs to the Mina literature. It's heavily influenced by the style, vocab and meters of Guru Granth Sahib. I've seen it referenced in writings on how the Guru Granth Sahib influenced Punjabi literature and sacred writings outside the Sikh fold
  12. Good thing to see you Papiman opening and looking through these old charitars also.. Maybe the earlier charitars start to make new meanings the further you go into later charitars.
  13. Harjas Pothi

    Nope i've never read it but seen references to it now and then-
  14. Lol looks like somethings never change!! This is from Nirmal Panth Pradipika from the late 1800s by Giani Gian Singh where he laments that the Nirmalas who used to not even take a small piece of land when offered by the maharajes, - now they are fighting each other in court cases over the land they are taking form the raje.
