This volume contains one of the most ancient versions of "Janamsakhi" edited by a British scholar M. McAuliffe. It is also known as Hafizabad wali Janamsakhi. The editor has edited the old manuscript and added and subtracted certain words and phrases by comparing this version with author copy of a similar Janamsakhi known as Walayat wali Janamsakhi. This version is one of the primary sources of Sikh history and makes a valuable reference for researchers and scholars. The editor has made the sentences easier to read by separating the old construction which clubs all the words in a sentence together with a long line overhead. It is one of the pioneering works on Guru Nanak's life.
