Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh Guru Roop Sangat Jeo,
The complete teeka of Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji is being uploaded by a sevadaar. When all the links are up I’ll update this post with them. Two teekas are being made available.
The first is that of Pandit Narain Singh Ji Gyani. Gyani Ji’s work is considered the best and most definitive work on Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji.
Gyani Narayan Singh ji’s Sri Dasam Granth Sahib ji Steek
The various parts will be uploaded to my new file host here.
Prof. Sahib Singh ji Jaap Sahib Steek
Prof. Sahib Singh ji’s Jaap Sahib steek is also being made available for the sangat. The teeka also covers Swayiye (Sravag Suddh) and the opening Chaupai of Sri Akaal ustat.
It is an important teeka as many missionaries have great regard for Prof. Sahib Singh but have been confused by the propaganda against Dasam Bani. Hopefully by reading this teeka some of their confusion can be cleared. In the foreword itself Prof. Sahib has made it absolutely clear that Sri Jaap Sahib and other banis of Sri Dasam Granth are composed by Sri Guru Gobind Singh Sahib Ji Maharaj himself.
The meanings are laid out in the ‘Guru Granth Sahib Ji Darpan’ style, with padd-arth (words and their .meanings) and the mool paath’s exposition.

An English translation of Baba Nand Singh ji`s jeevani is available in 5 volumes from this fantastic Nanaksar website.
Also, GurbaniUpdesh has posted videos of Bhai Hari Singh ji discussing Baba Nand Singh ji`s life. Bhai Hari Singh was Baba Nand Singh ji`s driver.
After clicking Here, click on ‘Katha’, then on ‘Baba Nand Singh Ji’ folder, then on the videos to watch.
A lareevar katha of Guru Granth Sahib ji is available for download. This particular katha is done by various kathavachiks.
Guru Nanak Sahib ji graced the mortal coil in human form during pooranmashi (full moon). Since then, Sikhs have celebrated this anniversary every pooranmashi for hundreds of years.
Baba Nand Singh ji Kaleranwale has blessed the Sikh panth by teaching a viddhi (method) by which we may make spiritual progress by leaps and bounds. Those who remain awake on the night preceding the day of the pooranmashi will attain the spiritual merit of doing one month worth of amritvela. Those who remain awake the whole night preceding the pooranmashi of Guru Nanak Sahib Maharaj ji’s advent to this world will attain the kamai (merit) of one year worth of amritvela! The point is to remain in yaad of Guru Nanak sahib ji the whole night. This year pooranmashi of Guru Nanak Sahib ji’s prakash diharra is on the 21st of November. This means you need to start on the night of November 20 and continue at least until the sun rises (or as much as you possibly can do). Das has heard that Baba Nand Singh ji said that Guru ji took avtar at 12:21 AM.
People sometimes do nindya of such things as they fall outside the bounds of ordinary human logic. However Gurmat has its own logic, it is internally consistent. But this does not mean that one can figure out the ocean of Guru Granth Sahib ji through mere philosophizing. If that were true the ocean would in reality be a mere puddle. Gurbani unequivocally states that the bachan of a True Sant automatically comes true. Have sharda in your Guru’s bachan about the sants.
