Guru Gobind Singh Ji's 52 Kavis

Recommended Posts

Vaheguru ji ka khalsa, Vaheguru ji ki fateh

 

I wanted to know if anybody from the forum had information regarding the 52 kavis and the works maharaj got translated and created through the kavis such as granths and epics.

One example is a work of one of the Kavis is a take on the Kama Sutra maharaj commissioned. This was mentioned within Sant Maskeen Jis Katha. If anybody has more information on these works and kavis that'll be much appreciated!

As a side note I think it's interesting how Guru Gobind Singh Ji has translated sanatan works within Guru Dasam Granth Sahib ji and not islamic works/translation from the Quran.

There is a link to a book by Piara SIngh Padam about these kavis in the first post of this thread. Hope this helps.

Plus I would say they didn't exactly translate them, but rather adapted them to Sikh needs. They also created unique works which look like commentary on existing literary genres as well as serving didactic purposes. Charitrio Pakyaan is along these lines in my opinion. Other works like shaster naam mala seem to be tools to develop lateral thinking and encourage a respect for shasters/asters.
