PLease do, and share them sikhawareness.com as well  Bhaji. i had responded to your posts there, but it seems yo haven't seen them yet.

 

Please divulge a little more on how you came across these and eventually acquired them Bhaji.

Actually i went to Pakistan last year in Nov. Visited many historical sites & Gurudwaras, and my grandfather served in the british army & he owned some land in pakistan prior to the partition, we thought it'd be a good idea to visit that place and after reaching & enquiring found some people who remembered my grandfather & after that everyone was quite hospitable & there i heard about this local art dealer who had collected stuff relating to sikh gurus as there are many historical places in Pakistan relating to sikh history & that person collects sikh antiquities & then auctions them off abroad, most of the stuff we don't even come across like guru ji's personal belongings & stuff like that, i saw these pothis with him and at first he was reluctant to sell these, i could just get this one right now due to financial reasons, but i hope to soon get the other ones too.

Actually i haven't posted some pages yet, they were pasted together as to not let us read that part, I've been carefully trying to separate them & that'll I'll post them soon, they seem to have illustrations of demons & seem a bit macabre, idk, i really find this pothi very interesting

Just be careful. You've no way of knowing whether those utensils were used by Guru Sahibs. Don't get taken for a ride.

Alright now this guy is just plain out taking you for someone who'll believe anything. It could be that he is saying the truth, there is a chance that Guru Sahib could have once touched one of these things; however, we should know this much Guru Sahib despite being God had many political enemies who would try to "kill", (you can't kill Guru Sahib), so he would be cautious of who he ate from.

Yeah, i know what you're saying, & quite frankly I'm only interested in these books, granths, written material, the other things without any proof has to be 99% fake, cause when i met him he refused to show me gurujis personal belongings that I'm sure of that he's auctioning that stuff somewhere in europe, he has auctioned before & he will again, these scriptures would've been lost again in some collector's possession, hopefully I'll be able to get some more written material from him.

The illustrations are just beautiful 

Aren't those?

These just captivated me, somehow i felt attracted to them i saw them the first time, i had just seen the cover of the book & a few pages inside and he was quite a salesman for I'd never felt so religious or spiritual but through some of his stuff, i just wanted to take it, grab it, steal it, the way he "weaved" stories around simple objects, it's quite amazing

Maybe I'll make a new thread about this topic,

Something that attracts us, relating to our culture or something else that just makes the hair on your arms stand up, when you just hear some sikh historical Story, it happened with me quite a few times.

I don't these are Guru Sahib's Gutkas but I would still get it for a simple reason: it's still historical since it shows Larivaar and the fact that during Ranjit Singh's time Sikhi was at all time low for these Devta pictures. If you go before or after the Sikh Empire you wouldn't find these Gutkas.
