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.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
