Guru Piare Khalsa Sadh Sangat jio,
We are very happy to share the Manglacharan from Sri Sarbloh Granth Sahib with you. Essentially before the narration of the battles begins this is the invocation to Sri Akal Purakh. Many puratan Singhs saw this to be the equivalent of the Jap ji Sahib of Adi Guru Granth Sahib ji Maharaj, and the Jap Sahib of Sri Dasam Granth Sahib. According to Giani Sher Singh Nihang the Jap ji of Sarbloh Prakash is from verse 1- 331. According to Swami Harnam Das the Manglacharan finishes at 338. The Jap ji of each Granth is known in the tradition as the sutra literally like suture to sew. Hence the thread of the whole Granth Sahib or essence is contained in this first part of the scripture. This part of the scripture is also laconic and intended to be memorised.
