I thought I would share the following text which I found with others here. This is written in manuscript/granth Ref 2571 preserved at Central Public Library, Patiala. The manuscript has 782 pages it contains a number of different writings most of which are Guru Jee’s Sakhis.
It seems some premee had collected all these writings and placed then under one granth. The manuscript/granth seems to be written in the early 1700s.
Within this manuscript on page 452 there is a Rehat/Bibek Nama recorded from the spoken words of Guru Gobind Singh Jee. I have not seen this mentioned or quoted before by historians/writers so it will be new to most of you. The following is some of the text
੧ਓ ਸਤਿ ਗੁਰ ਪ੍ਰਸਾਦਿ II
ਪਾਤਸ਼ਾਹੀ ੧੦ II
ਹੁਕਮ ਹੋਆ ਲੈਣਾ ਤਾਂ ਖਾਲਸੇ ਵਿਚੋਂ II ਦੇ ਖਾਣਾ ਤਾ ਖਾਲਸੇ ਵਿਚਿ II ਖਾਣਾ ਤਾ ਖਾਲਸੇ ਵਿਚਿ II
ਹੁਕਮੁ ਹੋਆ ਸਬਦਿ ਕਾ ਸਿਖ ਕੋਈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗਇਆ II ਗਏ ਹੈ ਸਭ ਚੀਥੜੀਏ II ................ ਅਸਾਡੇ ਝੰਡੇ ਨਿਆਰੇ ਹੈ II .............
Notice it mentions ਖਾਣਾ ਤਾ ਖਾਲਸੇ ਵਿਚਿ not once but twice emphasising the point that the Khalsa should eat from the Khalsa. It also notes the Hukam of receiving and taking within the Khalsa i.e. Dasvand.
