The Sarbloh Granth (Punjabi: ਸਰਬਲੋਹ ਗ੍ਰੰਥ, sarabalōha grantha), also called Manglacharan Puran or Sri Manglacharan Ji, is a voluminous Sikh scripture. It consists of more than 6,500 poetic stanzas. [1] The Sarabloh Granth is a separate religious text from the Guru Granth Sahib and Dasam Granth. It is considered as amalgamation of writings of Guru Gobind Singh and other poets. Sarbloh Granth literally means "the Granth or Scripture of all-steel or iron".[2]

Khalsa Mahima, an authentic hymn of Guru Gobind Singh is present in this granth.[3] Like Guru Granth Sahib and Dasam Granth, No hymn or composition of this granth in used in daily Sikh liturgy and Amrit Sanchar.

There is no complete commentary or exegesis of this granth available and it is still under research.[4] The complete granth was first printed by Jathedar Santa Singh Nihang at Budha Dal Printing Press, Patiala.


There is high controversy among various scholars on authorship of Granth. Following are some of points:

  • According to Pundit Tara Singh, Sarabloh Granth was composed by Bhai Sukha Singh, a Granthi of Patna.[5] He put Khalsa Mahima in same granth to make people believe it to be composition of Guru Gobind Singh.
  • According to Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha, Sarabloh Granth was not written by Guru Gobind Singh and Khalsa Mahima appeared in it is out of context to main storyline. [6]
  • According to Sarabloh Granth steek published by Santa Singh Nihang, Sarabloh Granth was written by Guru Gobind Singh and was completed in Nanded. But still in introduction, it is mentioned that this scripture is still under lot of research.[4]
  • Early Sikh historical resources like Sri Gur Sobha, Parchi, Gurbilas Patishahi 10 etc. does not mention any single hymn of Sarabloh Granth, except Khalsa Mahima.


Sarabloh Granth contains 5 chapters:

  1. Eulogy of Devi. Battle of Devi with Daitya Bhim Naad. Killing of Bhimnaad.
  2. Sati of wife of Bhimnad, Brij Naad(Brother of Bhim Naad) prepare to fight Devta.
  3. Narda-Brijnaad dialogue on agreement, Killing of 11 Minister of Brijnaad in battle
  4. Battle of Brij Naad and Devta. Amrit pva ke jagana. Win of Daitya and putting Indra behind prison. Conquering Indra Lok.
  5. Call Supreme for Help. Supreme menifests as Sarabloh Avtar. Ganesha sent as doot to Brij Naad. Fight after non agreement. Battle of Brij Naad and Sarabloh. Killing of Brij Naad.

In Guru Granth Sahib and Dasam Granth, There is no reference to Brijnaad and Bhimnaad. In Dasam Granth, Sarabloh is not used for any Avtar.
