I have had a look through the forum but cannot find a topic focusing on "Gurbilas Patshahi Chhevin" so have decided to start one here. This granth was discussed a little in "Sri Gur Sobha" but I feel needs a topic of it's own. If the admins can do kirpa please merge those few posts concerning Gurbilas Patshahi Chhevin with this. This is a granth that is quite a big piece of literature, and is stated to be written by Bhagat Singh in 1718. Some professors/intellectuals have dismissed this granth as being written in the 1840s as some recensions bear events relating to this time period. I have started to read a book called "Guru Hargobind in Sikh tradition" by Gurbachan Singh Nayyar. He has addressed this issue of events and states that: "the scribe clearly laid down at one place that he supplemented the data given by the author with his own notes in order to provide continuity to the events mentioned by the author itself. In this connection the scribe mentioned the name of Maharaja Ranjit Singh and his firman or the order of the demolition of Sarai Nur." (pg 3).
