GRANTH GURBILĀS PĀTSHĀHĪ 6 (granth = volume, book; gurbilās = life story of the Gurū pātshāhī 6 = the spiritual preceptor, sixth in the order of succession), is a versified account, in Punjabi, of the life of Gurū Hargobind, Nānak VI. The manuscript, preserved in the Pañjāb University Library, Chaṇḍīgaṛh, under accession No. 1176, is of anonymous authorship. The date of its composition is also not known. The condition of the paper, the formation of the letters and the style of writing point to a comparatively recent date. The manuscript comprises 135 folios, each folio having 30 (fifteen + fifteen) lines. Chaupaī and dohirā are the metres most commonly used, with occasional interspersing of pauṛī, rasāval nishānī and narāj.

         The contents of the Gurbilās are almost identical with those of the other Gurbilās, commonly attributed to Kavī Sohan. There are many dates given in the text but most of them do not tally with those commonly accepted in the Sikh tradition. The author nowhere refers to the works he relied upon, though he does state that Gurū Hargobind's life had been presented before him in great detail and that he was narrating it only in brief. The entire volume is divided into several parts, each part dealing with some important episode from the Gurū's life.
