Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa, Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh.

CyberSangat ji (I hope that's appropriate to say), I'm kind of new to this site, and I came here mainly because of the load of questions I had. A few of them are about the 'Khalsa Rehatnama', found in the Gutkas issued by Baba Santa Singh ji of the Buddha Dal. I find It to be quite strange. It had portions from Bhai Nand Lal Singh Ji's Bani (his Rehatnama and Tankhanama in specific), a portion from a Gurbilas, Suraj Prakash (I think) and a few other select paurdees (stanzas) from other Rehatnamas and Granths. Why is it like that? Who Compiled the 'Khalsa Rehatnama' of the Buddha Dal? Why are only a select few paurdees in the Buddha Dal's Rehatnama? Also, I know a Akhand Kirtani Jatha Singh and he reads a 'Khalsa Rehatnama' which is a compilation of like 6-7 different Rehatnamas and shabads from Sarbloh Granth and Sri Dasam Patshahi Ki Granth during Amritvela after Nitnem, he has them written down in a few papers. I have never heard of, known of, or seen a Singhni or Singh do that. Is it like an AKJ version of the 'Khalsa Rehatnama' or something? I haven't even seen Akj Singhs or singhnis do something like that.

I do paath of a few Rehatnamas, but I don't understand why the Buddha Dal's 'Khalsa Rehatnama' is so short and cut up.

I don't see the purpose of that though. Some of The Rehatnamas are Gurvaaks and authentic. It would be like saying, "Here is Bhai Gurdas Jee's Bani, and now I'll summarize it all".

It wouldn't be just since how can we "summarize" a poetic composition written or uttered with such love by the Guru or Hazoori Gursikh?

Personally, I think the Khalsa Rehatnama should be including all of Bachan Prakash, Bachan Pragas, Bachan Veechar, Prashanuttar, Naseehatnama Bhai Nand Lal Ji, Sikhi Rehat Patshahi 10, Sri Guru Katha's Rehatnama portion, Mukatnama, Bhai Prahlad Singh Rehatnama,

Bhai Daya Singh's Sri Satguru Vach etc. whichever ones seem authentic to the author.

Just my opinion.
