Guru Granth Sahib Original
This Swaroop of Guru Granth Sahib is the work of dedicated and selfless individuals like Vedanti Ji, Talwara Ji, and others undertook this noble task. They identified deliberate errors in the Guru Granth Sahib by SGPC and tirelessly devoted over three decades to rectify these issues, ensuring the Guru Granth Sahib remained in pristine condition. Notably, they observed that SGPC's prints of the Guru Granth Sahib had 16 distinct versions across subsequent editions and shabad kosh.
The history of Guru Granth Sahib's printing began with Lahore and various printing presses in Punjab. Unfortunately, inconsistencies and errors emerged among different printers, prompting SGPC to take up the responsibility in 1952 and printing the First edition.
Post-1952, Guru Granth Sahib copies were meant to be identical, but SGPC, influenced by external political factors, made 8000+ modifications with no rectification effort. The original SGGS, printed by SGPC, a copy is enclosed.
Remarkably, SGPC stands out as the only religious organization globally that has allowed the progressive deterioration and amplification of errors in the Guru Granth Sahib, marking it as an inept institution.
Furthermore, the sale of reference handwritten copies of the Guru Granth Sahib by corrupt SGPC officials, including the significant Harjas Swaroop & Ram Rai Swaroop, is deeply troubling. Additionally, 260 handwritten old manuscripts returned by the Indian Government have also been sold.
In contrast, trustees in organizations like SikhBookClub and Guru Granth Sahib Translation projects are solely dedicated to preserving the Guru's divine work in its pristine condition, devoid of any political affiliations or other influences.
The goal is to disseminate Guru Sahib's divine wisdom, offering solace in these turbulent times. Guru Sahib advocated universal brotherhood, treating all equally. They illuminated the path to inner peace and solace, crucial for self-reflection during challenging moments.
