Pal Singh Purewal 9 Autobiography
Nanakshahi Calendar“Shromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee has decided to implement the new Reformed Nanakshahi Calendar from 1999 CE. The changes were recommended by the Calendar Reform Committee under the aegis of The Institute of Sikh Studies, Chandigarh. In this article these changes and why they were necessary are discussed.”
Gurbani and Nanakshahi CalendarWhat do seasons have to do with Gurbani or Sikh history?
“Guru Nanak Sahib had spent almost a quarter of a century traveling on foot and spreading the word in the world. He observed physical phenomena, and his bani reflects some of them. It is true that his aim was not to highlight the phenomena but to impart true knowledge using them as a vehicle, since people could relate to them. “
Guru Nanak Sahibs Birth Date“There is no doubt that Guru Nanak was born in Baisakh. All the older Janamsakhis give that as Guru Nanak’s natal month. As late as the Sambat 1872 it was in Baisakh that the anniversary fair of Guru Nanak’s birth was always celebrated at Nankana.”

The data for Parkash Gurgadi and Joti Jot of Guru Sahibaan was collected and consolidated by S. Pal Singh Purewal while working on the Nanakshahi calendar.

Date of Tara Charhiya Lamma – Tukhari Raag “A few references about stars in gurbani on pages 459, 329, 1033, 1373 refer to actual stars in the sky. The commet of 1531 CE was recorded as Halley’s Commet, as seen around the world.” Was this the comet Guru Ji saw at Kartarpur?
Problem of Date Conversions in Sikh History“The importance of correctness of dates in history can never be overstated. Without dates history changes into mythology and incorrect dates could cause a complete mess of sequence of events.

Some of the most learned authors and scholars have made glaring errors of calendar conversions from Bikarami and Hijri eras to the Common Era. In one case a date has been assigned to an astronomical event which could not possibly have occurred on that date.”

Chamkaur – Shaheedi Dates of Sahibzadas
The Shaheedi dates of Sahibzadas have already been discussed in the paper ‘Problem of Date Conversions in Sikh History‘.

Here additional information and supporting material is being provided. Some material to show that Vaisakhi of 1699 CE Julian was on 29th March, and not on 30th March as popularized by Dr. Ganda Singh.

“In a few hours on a single day, the 39th birthday of the Guru, the two tender princes, Ajit Singh and Jujhar Singh, still in their teens, three of the five beloved ones and thirty two other Khalsa, closely watched by the Guru, laid down their lives at the altar of faith and freedom.”
Solar Eclipse Dates (Kurukshetra visibility) During Guru Nanak Sahib’s UdasisSolar Eclipses Visible at Kurukshetra (Lat 29d 59’N Long 76d 48’E). Jan 1, 1498 CE (old style) To Dec 31, 1521 CE (old style). “

In books on Sikh history mention of visits of Sikh Gurus to Kurukshetra at the time of solar eclipse fairs is made. Those dates have to be examined on the basis of astronomical facts.”
