Sri Dasam Granth Parkash at Nihung Chaavni, Fatehgarh Sahib

The website, SriDasam.Org, features the Sri Dasam Granth Sahib in English, Punjabi, and Hindi. The site also provides a search engine for the scriptures.

The Dasam Granth (Punjabi: ਸ੍ਰੀ ਦਸਮ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਸਾਹਿਬ ਜੀ ), historically known as Dasven Padshah Ka Granth (Punjabi: ਦਸਵੇਂ ਪਾਤਸ਼ਾਹ ਦਾ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ) (Book of the Tenth Emperor) or Bachitar Natak Granth (Punjabi: ਬਚਿਤਰ ਨਾਟਕ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ), is a scripture of Sikhism, containing texts composed by the 10th Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh. The compositions of the Granth set out the ideas, thoughts and guidelines for the future of the Nanak panth as enshrined in the Khalsa. The Jaap Sahib, Tvye Prasad Sawaiye (Amrit Savaiye) and Benti Chaupai, all compositions from the Dasam Granth, are part of the daily prayers Nitnem of the Sikhs, which serve, as well, as a part of the Sikh initiation Khande di Pahul. The beginning portion of the daily Ardas for Sikhs is also a composition within the Dasam Granth. This Granth contains the background of creation of Khalsa Panth.

Background

The Sri Dasam Granth is attributed to have been written by Guru Gobind Singh (1666-1708). However, there is great debate over various portions of the scriptures. This website takes no position on the debate. There is no doubt that the authenticity of the Dasam Granth is highly questionable, but what remains a fact is that the Dasam Granth exists, and this website provides it for your reference and curiousity. Please read the disclaimer for more details.

This project was a collaboration of hard work by various individuals. Here we acknowledge all of these people.
