For translation of the bani of Sarbloh Granth (manglacharan puran) visit:

http://sikh-reality....arbloh%20Granth

For a summary of the sarbloh granth visit: http://sikh-reality....h-sahib-ji.html

For a historical context of the granth visit: http://sikh-reality....ngalcharan.html

Here is one example of a translation on the blog posted above

'Akaal Akaal Akaal' Shabad from Sarbloh Granth

This shabad has been on the blog before but now the english translation has been added to it.

ਜੇ ੳਪਮਾ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਨਾਥ ਕੀ ਗਾਇ ਹੈ; ਤੇ ਭਵ ਫਾਸਿ ਨ ਫੇਰ ਪਰੇਗੇ ॥

Whoever sings the praises of the Lord of Maya, will never be trapped in the noose (of death)

ਆਰਿਤ ਜੱਗ ਕਰੇ ਹਰਿ ਹੇਤੂ ਰਰੈ ਸ੍ਰੀ ਨਾਥ ਨਿਸ੍ਹੈ ਕੈ ਤਰੇਗੇ ॥

Those who always worship and recite the Lord's name, they shall merge with the Lord Master

ਪੂਜਬੇ ਜੋਗ ਨ ਔਰ ਹੈ ਦੂਸਰ, ਏਕ ਗੁਪਾਲ ਗੁਪਾਲ ਕਰੇਗੇ ॥

(Those that realize that) only The Lord is worthy of worship, and those that recite the One (advait) Gopal (the one who takes care of the world)

ਲੋਕ ਸੁਖੀ ਪਰਲੋਕ ਖਲਾਸ ਅਕਾਲ ਅਕਾਲ ਅਕਾਲ ਕਰੇਗੇ ॥

Those who recite, Akaal ! Akaal ! Akaal ! (The Timeless Lord), in this world will experience happiness and in the next will be liberated.

also I would like to point out that the Sarabloh Granth Sahib gives out vast info

ਆਪਨਪੌ ਸ਼੍ਰੀ ਖਾਲਸਹਿ ਸੌਪਾਂ, ਦ੍ਵਤਯਿ ਰੂਪ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਗ੍ਰੰਥਾ ॥

I (Guru Gobind Singh Ji) have passed down (my form) to the Khalsa, the second Form of mine is the Granth

ਬੋਲਨ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਸਬਦ-ਸੋਭਾਖਨ, ਨਾਮ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਕੀਰਤਨਿ ਸੰਥਾ ॥

The recitation of the Shabad is the Satiguru's speach to us, whether it be Gods Name (simran roop), or through singing hymns (keertan), or through studying His Word (santhaa)

ਗੁਨਾਨੁਵਾਦ ਪੁਨਿ ਸਿਫਤਿ ਸਲਾਹਨਿ, ਊਠਤੁ ਬੈਠਤੁ ਸੈਨ ਕਰੰਥਾ ॥

By praising the Lord one becomes virtuous, whether standing or sitting

ਪਾਵਨ ਪੰਥ ਖਾਲਸਹਿ ਪ੍ਰਗਟਯੋ, ਚਾਰ ਵਰਨ ਆਸ਼੍ਰਮ ਸੁਭ ਪੰਥਾ ॥੧॥

The pure Panth, the Khalsa has came into being, that glorious Panth with four castes and four ashrams

ਇਨ ਕੇ ਦਰਸ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਕੋ ਦਰਸਨ, ਬੋਲਨ ਗੁਰੂ ਸਬਦੁ ਗੁਰੁ ਗ੍ਰੰਥਾ ॥

To behold it (the Khalsa) is to behold the Satiguru, (its members) repeat the Guru's Word from the Guru Granth

ਦ੍ਵਾਦਸਿ ਰੂਪ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਕਹਿਯਤਿ, ਦ੍ਵਾਦਸਿ-ਭਾਨੁ ਪ੍ਰਗਟ ਹਰਿ ਸੰਤਾ ॥

In twelve forms the Satiguru appears, just as twelve rays of the sun reflect the light of God (Hari)

ਪ੍ਰਤਯਖ ਕਲਾ ਪਾਰਬ੍ਰਹਮ ਧਣੀਛੈ, ਗ੍ਰੰਥਿ ਪੰਥ ਖਾਲਸ ਵਰਤੰਤਾ ॥

The visible power of God is manifested in the Khalsa as (the doctrine of the Guru) Granth and (that of the Guru) Panth

ਦਾਸ ਗੋਬਿੰਦ ਫਤਹ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਕੀ, ਖਾਸ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ ਗੁਰੁ ਰੂਪ ਬਦੰਤਾ ॥੨॥ਦੁਪਦ ੧॥

(Guru) Gobind (Singh) is the servant of the victorious Satiguru, he who reveals himself as the Khalsa and as the Guru Granth

*The translator is translating this line as "Daas Gobind Fatah Satiguru Ki, Khalsa Granth Gur Roop Badanta", which is different because the word Khaas is being replaced with Khalsa. In some Saroops (manuscripts) of Sarbloh Granth one can see Khalsa as being the word there, however in majority of the Saroops have Khaas, according to the Tikadhar of the Sarbloh Granth Steek.

The Nihang Singh Sikhs believe it to be their third granth of importance, the first two being Adi Guru Granth Sahib and Dasam Guru Granth Sahib.

They even do prakash of it along with the other two granths.

4 castes = Bhramin, Kshatriya, Vaish, Shudra

4 ashrams = 4 traditional stages in a persons spiritual journey

0-21 Brahmacharya/Student: The celibate student time of youth is for learning the foundation of lifestyle. The focus is on healthy, positive training and discipline, learning about spiritual, community, and family life.

21-42 Grahasta/Householder: The householder phase of life is when one lives with spouse and children, fulfilling worldly interests and duties. It is a time of giving, living, learning, and loving in family and community. Religious or spiritual practices are done in the context of worldly life and service to others.

42-63 Vanaprastha/Hermitage: This is a time for shifting focus more towards more inner spiritual practices of meditation, contemplation, and prayer. Relationships with grown children and community are more in the role of a matured mentor. Lifestyle is more simplified, and the couple may retreat to a quieter place for deeper practices.

63-84+ Sanyasa/Renunciate: The elder person now retreats from active involvement in all worldly goals, seeking only spiritual goals in this final phase. No longer having political, professional, or social engagements, there is a further shift towards being an elder teacher of spiritual knowledge.

"while others sat under railway tracks in protest and got crushed by speeding rail engines"

There were trains during Guru Gobind Singh Ji's time? When was this Granth written and who wrote it?

"The pure Panth, the Khalsa has came into being, that glorious Panth with four castes and four ashrams"

Is this not promotion of caste?
