A Page from the Ut-thanka

One of the unique, prized and extremely rare collection of the World Sikh Heritage Museum is Ut-thanka Granth Sahib Ki by Sri Guru Gobind Singh Ji. The term Ut-thanka means etymological connotation. Dr. Balbir Singh of Panch Vati, Dehradun (younger brother of Bhai Sahib Dr. Vir Singh Ji, was working on a similar project, which was sponsored by Panjabi University, Patiala. Part one of his NIRUKAT was duly published. Before he could continue on to the next phase he passed away and at his death, the project came to a standstill. He was very much interested ion the great Ut-thanka Granth of which Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha left no stone unturned to find this great treasure. He even visited Afghanistan in search of this Granth and the Damdami Bir Sahib, which Abdalli took away from the horrible big holocaust of Kup-Rahira. He was disappointed not to trace the lost treaseure.

With the divine grace our team is successful in acquiring the great treasure. We are pleased to share with the inquisitive sangat that we have now three recensions of Ut-thanka. And indeed out of 29 Granths not available anywhere in the world, we humbly submit to you that 22 are safe in our care. Collection was the first task, which is accomplished by the benign blessings of Waheguru. The next step is to make them available to you in one form or the other. Most of them are now microfilmed. Ut-thanka needs immediate publication for which your support is solicited.

This excellent creative work in dynamic interpretation resolves a number of dichotomic issues of the scriptures. An illustration is included in the menu of this input.
