The compositions which now form part of the Dasam Granth and the Sarabloh Granth may be portions of it which were salvaged or which had been earlier copied and preserved by the devotees. Guru Gobind Singh`s poets at Anandpur Sahib among them, Amrit Rai, Ani Rai, Siam, Sainapati, Alam, Tahikan, Daya Singh, Sukha Singh and Dharam Singh had been mostly assigned to the task of translating ancient Sanskrit texts into Braj, Sadh Bhakha and Punjabi. These translations may have formed the bulk of the Vidia Sagar Granth references to which exist in old Sikh works such as Mahima Prakash (1776), Kesar Singh Chhibbar`s Bansavalinama (1796) and Sri Gur Pratap Suraj Granth (1843).
