Rare Panjabi manuscripts discovered by UK heritage group.

A number of Sikh and Hindu Gurmukhi Manuscripts have been discovered in a Russian Library. 

Adi Guru Granth Sahib ji, f. 1, showing the Jap ji Sahib, a similar manuscript is at the Oriental Institute Library, Russia.

Researchers at Panjab Cultural Association (PCA) in the UK have recently discovered around 100 Gurmukhi Manuscripts at the Oriental Institute in St Petersburg.

The manuscripts were originally cataloged in Russian by G.A. Zograf, in 'Opisanie Rukopisei Khindi i Pondzhobi' . There is one handwritten copy of the Guru Granth Sahib, other Panj and Das Granthis, as well as translations of Indian classical scriptures, like the Bhagwad Gita. Some of the manuscripts are illustrated.

The PCA are now working on translating the catalogue into English, and verify the findings of G. A. Zograf.
