Title Sri Gur Sobha
Description This is the original and first publication of an ancient manuscript of a poetic tribute to the glory and grandeur of Guru Gobind Singh written by a court poet of Guru Gobind Singh. It is an account of the battles, saint soldierly qualities of the Guru and his creation of the Khalsa. The poet has portrayed the Guru as a divine prophet, a relentless warrior, and charismatic divine. The poet's devotion to the Guru and his admiration touches such heights of linguistic phraseology at places where it becomes difficult for the reader to distinguish between the Guru and God. The poet's command over the Punjabi hybrid "Braj Bhasha" is revealed through his successful use of prevalent poetic devices and material configuration. Similarly the use of lofty similes and metaphors reveal the poets' intention of making his verse a poetic epic. The diction is so archaic and repetitive that the reader finds its import difficult to understand there are also certain discrepancies in names and dates. Despite these shortcomings, it is considered one of the significant sources of Sikh history.
