There are many prologues about the creation of Jaap Sahib in Sikh Sampardayi traditions. According to the Uthanka preached by Sant Kartar Singh Ji Nirmala -
Once, a Pandit named Kanshiram, hailing from Benaras (Varanasi) in India, arrived at Guru Sahib's court. He had heard great praises of Guru Sahib and had the belief that if the Tenth Guru is an incarnation of God, he would appear in the form of the four-armed deity, Chaturbhuj. As Kanshiram entered the court, he indeed saw Guru Sahib seated on the throne in the form of Chaturbhuj. The Sangat (congregation) from Kabul had presented flowers to Guru Sahib, and he gave one of those flowers to Kanshiram. Deeply captivated by Guru Sahib, Kanshiram made a request, "Guru Sahib, please recite a Bani that will bring eternal peace to all."
Guru Sahib responded by explaining that he would now recite a Bani called 'Bir Rasi' (the spirit of a warrior), which would inspire the Sikhs to take up arms and fight against tyranny. Through this Bani, known as Sri Dasam Granth, they would gain a profound understanding of the three states of Maya/creation: Rajo, Tamo, and Sato. The first Bani composed at that time was Jaap Sahib, followed by Akal Ustat, which praised Akal Purakh (the eternal being) and belonged to the Satoguni (pure) realm. Bachitar Natak, Chandi Charitar, and Chaubis Avtar conveyed knowledge about the Tamo guna (mode of darkness) through tales of wars, instilling the warrior spirit (Bir Ras) in the Sikhs. Charitropakhyan provided insight into the Rajo guna (mode of passion) through stories revealing the realities of the world and governance. To read the complete Path Japji Sahib in Punjabi CLICK HERE.
