Adi Granth Paintings Raga-Ragamala and Barah-Maha
Description
About the Book

Adi-Granth, Holy Scripture of the Sikhs is composed in various ragas and arranged according to their order. Towards the end there is special mention of hierarchy of ragas, the 'ragamala's. it also contains 'Barah-maha'- the constant longing of the soul for the eternal God expressed over a period of twelve months.

The present volume is a novel attempt to depict these religious compositions through the medium of colour. What could be hitherto only heard as a string of words has been infused with a strong lively vibration. Each canvas is complete and imposing in itself. The whole collection, with artist-author's concise facts becomes a synergy of the arts, a devout prayer, and a holy vision.

For lovers of art and literature the book provides a unique opportunity to discover human mind, its longings, aspirations, achievements, and a courageous respect for nature.

About the Author

Dr. R. S. gill is a renowned artist with several exhibitions of painting and graphics to his credit in Burssels, Frankfurt, Paris, London, Munich, India and U. S. A. he has published several books in Devnagri.

Born in 1935 and a post-graduate in Fine Arts, Dr. Gill is deeply interested in the subject of Indian classical music. His choice of Adi-granth as inspiration for paintings is indeed a blessing.

This volume is an achievement for him as well as the world of art, being a rare combination of mystique, religion and fundamentals of music, depicted through myriad colours that enable the viewer to experience the cosmic consciousness.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
