Raag Ratan ~ 31 Sudh Raags of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji

New Album Released

ਅਨੰਦੁ ਭਇਆ ਮੇਰੀ ਮਾਏ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਮੈ ਪਾਇਆ ॥

ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਤ ਪਾਇਆ ਸਹਜ ਸੇਤੀ ਮਨਿ ਵਜੀਆ ਵਾਧਾਈਆ ॥

ਰਾਗ ਰਤਨ ਪਰਵਾਰ ਪਰੀਆ ਸਬਦ ਗਾਵਣ ਆਈਆ ॥

ਸਬਦੋ ਤ ਗਾਵਹੁ ਹਰੀ ਕੇਰਾ ਮਨਿ ਜਿਨੀ ਵਸਾਇਆ ॥

ਕਹੈ ਨਾਨਕੁ ਅਨੰਦੁ ਹੋਆ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੂ ਮੈ ਪਾਇਆ ॥੧॥

I am in ecstasy, O my mother, for I have found my True Guru. I have found the True Guru, with intuitive ease, and my mind vibrates with the music of bliss. The jeweled melodies and their related celestial harmonies have come to sing the Word of the Shabad. The Lord dwells within the minds of those who sing the Shabad. Says Nanak, I am in ecstasy, for I have found my True Guru.

    • Dr. Manbir Singh says:

      Gur Fateh Gurvinder Singh ji,
      Thanks for your message. With Waheguru’s mehar we are trying to compose and record Raag based Gurbani Kirtan. With the completion of 31 Raags Project Gurpreet Kaur plans to take up Mishrit Raags of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. There are so many Mishrit Raags in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji which the world of Music is unaware of. With Sangat’s Good Wishes and Waheguru ji’s Kirpa we would try to complete this new project in the next year.

  8. I am wife of Avtar Singh Missionary, gori katavachak and kirtani.
    I can play any raag with my guitar. The bibian have beautiful voices. Bahot sona.

    • chhinderpal singh says:

      it is another wonder that an English lady after Amritpaan became Bibi Harsimrat Kaur Khalsa and learnt Gurbani gayan in Nirdharit raagas and that too with guitar. This is the true order ,”Ghar ghar andr dharmsaal hove keertan sadaa vasoaa”. May WaheguruG bestow all power and concentration for such great Jathas including Gurmat Gyan Group for spreading the true Words of Baba Nanak.

      • Gurpreet Kaur says:

        Our Guru’s Bani is ‘Great Wonder’. A Wonderful gift to humanity. There is nothing like Gurbani on this planet. Any musical instrument can accompany Gurbani singing and guitar is a beautiful musical instrument.
        I would love to hear Harsimrat Kaur Khalsa’s recordings of Gurbani Keertan.

  11. ਆਹ ਆਪ ਸ਼ਾਇਦ ਕਿਸੇ ਨੂੰ ਕਮ ਆਉ Raaga (Rebabre Ent.) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=rebabre.ent.raaga. ਇਹਦੇ ਉਤੇ ਕੁਸ਼ ਵੱਖ ਵੱਖ ਰਾਗਾਂ ਬਾਰਿ ਥੋੜ੍ਹੀ ਜਾਨਕਾਰੀ।

  12. Rajinder Singh says:

    There are 60 raags in Guru Granth Sahib ji. Visit sikher.com

    • Manbir Singh says:

      Yes, there are 60 Raags mentioned in Sri Guru Granth Sahib. If Raag Mala too is taken into consideration the numerical number of Raags mentioned goes up further. But, conventionally, the Gurbani mentioned in Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is divided into Basic or Shudh Raags and Mishrit Raags. All the learned Kirtanias find 31 Shudh or Basic Raags and the remaining as in Mishrit Raags.
      Ultimately, these numbers do not matter or count in any ways. The purpose of singing Gurbani in Raags is to Beautifully convey the Message enshrined in Guru Granth Sahib ji. It would be pertinent to say that lets not miss the Flowers & Fruits while being busy counting the trees.

      • Rajinder Singh says:

        Yes you are right. But why some learned people give wrong information. It will be much better that they should avoid talking on this subject, i.e. on the number of raags.

        • Manbir & Gurpreet says:

          There is nothing like a ‘Wrong Information’ when Sikh Musicians divide the Raags mentioned in SGGS into Shudh & Mishrit Raags.
