Does anyone know where the english translation is available? And if someone could briefly explain the Granth, that would be great. Thank you so much. Sarbloh is a fitting name for the Granth as this age, which we live in today, is known as "Kal-yug" the dark age and also the Sarbloh age. Especially due to its heavy reliance on metals. The history of the Granth is spaced over a period ranging from "Sat-yug" age of truth to our present age. Oral tradition states that Sanyasi Brahma-Anand in Sat-yug lived at Nanded and compiled the Granth after the events which he saw during his Bhagti.
As he was leaving his physical form his nine disciples asked him for mukti or liberation. Brahma-Anand told them that even though he was liberated he could not grant liberation, only Guru Nanak Dev Ji could do that. Yet maharaj's time was very distant. He would only be manifested in Kal-yug. When the disciples asked how they would identify Guru maharaj, Brahma-Anand gave them his gutka and did ardass that when Guru Gobind Singh Ji came in Kal-yug he should ask for the gutka until then all nine would not be affected death or any other worldly matter.
Hence maharaj met the nine in Kal-yug at Nanded, received the gutka from them and granted them liberation. To this gutka he added his own compositions and it was this which became Sri Sarbloh Granth. Many Gursikhs and Udasi scholars have undertaken an extensive study of the Granth and concluded it is from the hands of Guru Gobind Singh Ji.
However it may contain verses from other poets similar to Bhatt Bani in Gurbani. Sarbloh in this case is being used as a name for the lord. Not only is the Granth in praise of the power of the lord it also includes references to the present form of the Khalsa. It boldly answers the doubts raised on the 5 Kakkars today.
Many translate this to be cow-killers. Cow in Gurmat is a symbol for the defenseless, not the beast itself. However with the advance of the British and an all out attack by Brahminical forces the Dasam Granth and Sarbloh Granth were slowly forgotten and hence the Khalsa lost it's source of "Bir-Rass" or warrior spirit.
The Granth is divided into five chapters. It notes the power of Akal Purakh and how he created demons to remind the Gods and Goddesses of their status and place in the religious hierarchy, with him God being at the top. Sarboh pure metal serves as a reminder of this great symbolic event and purifies the mind, body and soul. Chapter One: This chapter contains the praises of Akal-Purakh and his shakti.
It also starts of the tale of the Gods and Goddesses and their foes, the demons. On seeing the rise of the demons all the gods and goddesses run under the protection of Chandi, for it was she who had defeated the demon Bhimnad. Chapter Two: Waheguru has created Bhimnad and his brother Brijnath.
Bhimnad's wife over the defeat of her husband prepares to become a sati, while Brijnath prepares for war against the Gods and Goddesses. Chapter Three: The demons inflict a smashing defeat on their opponents. Vishnu sends as his ambassador, Narad to negotiate with Brijnath. The latter however is in no mode to listen. Especially since in the beginning of the battle he lost 11 infantry armies. Chapter Four: A massive battle starts in which Vishnu gives amrita elixir to te fallen Gods and Goddesses in order to raise them.
Indira manages to capture the demons but this victory is short-lived especially when Brijnath caputres him. Chapter Five: After encountering massive pain and a humiliating defeat all the Gods and Goddesses plead before Akal Purakh to assist them. Akal Purakh manifests himself as Sarbloh Avtar and chooses Ganesha as his ambassador. Ganesha is sent to Brijnath as Sarbloh Avtar's ambassador.
Brijnath once more ignores an ambassador and the battle restarts. The Gods and Goddesses use all their powers to call on Sarbloh for assistance. Sarbloh gives assistance to both demon and God alike.
Brijnath soon starts praising him, it is then that Sarbloh manifests himself in a aggressive and terrifying form. In the battle which ensues Brijnath is vanquished and annihilated. The Granth should not be interpreted as being solely a record of mythical battles.
It depicts, metaphorically, the continuous battle between good and evil which occurs in accordance with the lord's will and joy. It is also a genealogy of warrior clans which have perished over time. In reality it is found in Sarbloh Granth.
The Granth pays homage to Akal Purakh and his power and the Khalsa which is his army and a physical embodiment of him. Nanded, today, contains many birs of Sarbloh Granth which are historically important such as Mai Bhag Kaur's Bir; which is in the hands of Guru Sahib himself.
Kach, Kesh, and Kirpan these three signs made followers of the Guru the servants [also] of the Lord. What I think, what I am gleaning from this, is that the kara and kangha were additions made by sache patshah. The kanga and kara was worn by sikhs of Guru Teg Bahadur ji and by Guru ji himself , I had the blessing of seeing the kara of Guru Teg Bahadur ji in Gur-ka-bagh Patna a while back and Bhai Ranjit Singh Dhadrianwale refers to Guru ji doing ishara of value of Gursikh when he gives kurbani by aara, by running his finger of the kanga's teeth he was using to do his kesh.
This was to Bhai Mati Das ji. There are many forms of jangi Kara's for use in warfare , jamdhar, chobadar etc. Also there are the heavy iron ones used in "loh mushti" iron fist boxing. A French magazine has a record of Maharajah Ranjit Singhs soldiers fighting with iron bracelets to solve internal disputes.
Hence the kara is a shastar , which can also be used for joint breaking and manipulation for those who have the knowledge of the correct vidiya. The kara however or the kangha were not part of the the original "treh mudra", 3 signs by which a Sikh us recognised. You can post now and register later.

What did the sikh missionaries do? Anyone have them? How big should a male's kachhera be ideally? Talking to him. Very true, I'd like to think some of the descriptions are outright exaggerated, or at least don't apply to every individual. Udoke, Makhu do tons for teaching Sikhs of our modern history, to associate them with Neki? I don't agree. Each leader giving different direction vote or no vote, negotiate or not, khalistan or autonomy, samaj sudaar or no, I could go on. The organization they had, but for strategic reasons they decided to operate cells independently, which led to some going astray, or were not on the right path from the start.
Singh makes very good points for shaheed parivaars.
Sarbloh Granth literally means "the Granth or Scripture of all-steel or iron". However, many scholars and researchers question the authenticity of the Granth and its credibility remains in doubt. They believe that the difference between the Dasam Granth and the Sarbloh Granth is that although "Bir Ras" is born in the Dasam Granth , it is in the Sarbloh Granth where the individual warrior achieves an everlasting, final and complete lethal cutting edge advantage in this sphere of "Bir Ras". This Nihang belief is not accepted by the majority of the rest of the Sikh community.
