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.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
