CHALITAR JOTĪ JOTI SAMĀVAṆE KE, one of a collection of seven unpublished Punjabi manuscripts held in the Khālsā College at Amritsar under Catalogue No. 15'79E. Comprising a bare three folios (306-308), it is divided into two sections. The first part (ff. 306-307) entitled "Vervā Guriāī kā Likhiā, " lit. details recorded of the gurūship, gives the duration for which each of the ten Gurūs occupied the holy seat, followed by a vague remark that 24 years and 3 months have elapsed since he passed away, implying thereby that the writing took place 24 years and 3 months after the death (in 1708) of the tenth and last of the Gurūs, Gurū Gobind Siṅgh, which takes the date of the compilation of the manuscript to 1732. The second part, ff. 307-08, records dates of the passing away of six of the Ten Gurūs, Gurū Nānak, Gurū Aṅgad Dev, Gurū Hargobind, Gurū Har Krishan, Gurū Tegh Bahādur and Gurū Gobind Siṅgh. The author has also mentioned the day and time of Gurū Tegh Bahādur's execution - Thursday, about 1 p. m. The dates given are generally reliable. The manuscript concludes with the statement that Gurū Gobind Siṅgh had passed on the office of Gurū to the Khālsā.
