    Raag Yaman Kalyan in Gurbani Kirtan

    While you are listening to kirtan video clips with English Transliterations, you might want to identify the particular raag in which it's being sung.

    The professional musicians will always attempt to sing the shabad in the prescribed raag. But most amateurs could sing the shabad in any raag which they feel comfortable.

    During this learning process, that I'm attempting to take you through, other music clips of the same raag will be provided for you to identify this raag from the similarities.
    These short lessons are good for both adults and children and especially beneficial to those who want to learn how to play the harmonium by hearing it.

    This is raag Kalyan. While you listen to it, below the meanings of the shabad :

    Raag Kalyan (audio) : http://www.sawf.org/audio/kalyan/lata_gurbani.ram

    Shabad Transliteration:
    Gaurhee Guru Amar Das

    mil maerae preethamaa jeeo thudhh bin kharee nimaanee ||
    Meet me, O my Dear Beloved. Without You, I am totally dishonored.

    mai nainee needh n aavai jeeo bhaavai ann n paanee ||
    Sleep does not come to my eyes, and I have no desire for food or water.

    paanee ann n bhaavai mareeai haavai bin pir kio sukh paaeeai ||
    I have no desire for food or water, and I am dying from the pain of separation. Without my Husband Lord, how can I find peace?

    gur aagai karo binanthee jae gur bhaavai jio milai thivai milaaeeai ||
    I offer my prayers to the Guru; if it pleases the Guru, He shall unite me with Himself.

    aapae mael leae sukhadhaathaa aap miliaa ghar aaeae ||
    The Giver of peace has united me with Himself; He Himself has come to my home to meet me.

    naanak kaaman sadhaa suhaagan naa pir marai n jaaeae ||4||2||
    O Nanak, the soul-bride is the everlasting Lord's wife; her Husband Lord never dies and He shall never leave. ||4||2||



    Explanations on Raag Kalyan for beginners (text) : Raga Kalyan - we shall use the name interchangeably with Yaman. As the preeminent night-time Raga, Yaman embodies considerable gravitas. No other Raga has cut so wide a swathe across all genres of music and no other Raga has purchased so viselike a hold on the Indian's thoughts and feelings. Every child embarking on a preliminary study of classical music brings with her a working familiarity of Kalyan obtained through folk and other sources. Yaman has come to be acknowledged as the touchstone among classical musicians in calibrating a peer's quality and depth, its mastery deemed a sine qua non for any serious student. The magnitude and extent of Yaman's reach impel us to offer here a substantial listening experience both in the realm of the 'light' and the classical. In the posse of clips that follows, the Yaman and Yaman Kalyan instances are commingled.

    Other Videos/Audio on same raga :
    Aaj moray aaye hain
    Man Chaao Bhaya Praph Aagam Sunya
    Gun Naad Gun Aanand
    Har Har Simro Sant Gopala 1
    Har Har Simro Sant Gopala 2
    Bin kartar na kirtan mano
    Gur ke charan ji ka nistara
    Kaun bidh ta ki kaha karu
    Sajan tere charan ki
    Gun naad dhun anad bhed
    Har jee mata har ji pita
    Mere hiyre ratan nam har vasiya
    Mere lalan ki sobha

    Namjap ji,

    As a total kirtan addict (to the extent that people run in the other direction when they see me because they don't want to talk about it any more) you have no idea what gift you have given. Please sustain this thread for just a while. That RealPlayer clip was so beautiful and CLEAR, CLEAR, CLEAR.

    More than BTW -- you are using the Internet creatively by bringing information and different media together within an interactive structure.

    Anyway, this is really great! Are you going to add a new lesson every so many days?

    Namjap,

    Watched the YouTube clip #1. Who was the featured player? And was the video made in a music studio? Really nice.

    An Esraj is basically a variation of the Dilruba. It's like a hybrid Sitar + Sarangi .

    Respected namjap Ji,

    The following is the list of Raagas and varients of Raagas in Dhan Dhan Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

    people do use different Raagas though for their own conveienace (may be it is easier for them to sing), i guess it is up to you to post it or not.




    The entire Bani of the Dhan Dhan Siri Guru Granth Sahib Ji has been classified under 31 main Raagas.
    Sri(Panna 14-93), Maanjh(Panna 94-150), Gauree(Panna 151-346), Aasaa(Panna 347-488), Gujree(Panna 489-526 ), Devghandhaaree(Panna 527-536), Bihaagraa(Panna 537-556), Wadhans(Panna 557-594), Sorath(Panna 595-659), Dhanaasree(Panna 660-695), Jaitsree( Panna 696-710), Todee(Panna 711-718), Bairaaree(Panna 719-720), Tilang(Panna 721-727), Suhee(Panna 728-794), Bilaawal(Panna 795-858), Gaund(Panna 859-875), Raamkalee(Panna 876-974), Nat Naaraayan(Panna 975-983), Maalee Gauraa(Panna 984-988), Maaroo(Panna 989-1106), Tukhaaree(Panna 1107-1117), Kedaaraa(Panna 1118-1124), Bhairav(Panna 1125-1167), Basant(Panna 1168-1196), Saarang(Panna 1197-1253), Malhaar(Panna 1254-1293), Kaanraa(Panna 1294-1318), Kalyaan(Panna 1319-1326), Parbhaatee(Panna 1327-1351), and Jaijawantee(Panna 1352-1359)

    No raaga- Panna 1-13, 1360-1430.
    Besides these 31 main Raagas, there are some variants of Raagas.
    Gauree Guaareree, Gauree Dakhanee, Gauree Chetee, Gauree Deepkee, Gauree Poobee, Gauree Maanjh, Gauree Poobee Deeplee, Gauree Sulakhanee, Gauree Maalvaas, Gauree Maalaa, Gauree Bairaagan, Gauree Sorath,
    Wadhans Dakhanee,
    Tilang Kaafee,
    Suhee Kaafee, Suhee Lalit,
    Bilaaval Dakhanee, Bilaaval Gaund, Bilaaval Mangal,
    Raamkalee Dakhanee,
    Maroo Kafee, Maaroo Dakhanee,
    Basant Hindol,
    Kalyaan Bhoopaalee,
    Praabhaatee Dakhanee, and Praabhaatee Bibhaas.
    Each Raaga offers a unique relationship to human moods and feelings. There is a seasonal allocation to different raagas, as Malhaar and Megha Raagas, are sung in the rainy season, in the spring the Basant Raaga, There is time allocation to all the ragas as well. Daily twenty-four hour timing cycle when divided in eight Pahars (each Pahar is approximately three hours)-:
    6 AM - 9AM: Bilaaval, Devgandhaaree
    9 AM - 12 PM: Saarang, Suhee, Bilaaval, Gujree, Goaud, Todee
    12 PM - 3 PM: Vadhans, Maaroo, Dhanaasaree
    3 PM - 6 PM: Maanjh, Gauree, Tilang, Tukharee
    6 PM - 9 PM: Sri Raaga, Basant, Maalee Gauraa, Jaitsree, Kedaaraa, Kalyaan
    9 PM - 12 AM: Bihaagra, Nat Naraayan, Sorath, Malhaar, Kaanraa, Jaijawantee
    12 AM - 3 AM: No Raaga is allocated to this one
    3AM - 6AM: Aasaa, Raamkalee, Bhairav, Parbhaatee



    humbly asking for everybody's forgiveness

    just adding- Shabad sung by Lata ji(link you gave), she sung it in Raag Kalyaan, BUT IN DHAN DHAN SIRI GURU GRANTH SAHIB JI -it is in raag GAUREE............

    Raag Todi
    We started with Raag Kalyan in the earlier posting, and now we will listen, view and discuss on Raag Todi.

    Explanation on Todi :
    Raga Todi is known variously as Miyan ki Todi, Shuddha Todi and Darbari Todi. The kernel of Raganga Todi is embodied in the following tonal strip:

    S, r<->g, g r, S
    This represents the Raga signature.

    Short Explanation of Theory: http://www.sawf.org/audio/todi/jha_todianga.ram

    A ragini of Dipak in the Ragmala, Todi is today the head of a thata. It is considered one of the most important of the north Indian ragas. Todi was used by the Gurus for 32 hymns. This is a raga for the late morning hours and the mood is gentle, with an aura of adoration. The texts composed to this raga emphasize that no matter what problems man meets or what worldly affairs distract the mind, devotion to the Lord brings one back to the path of release from worldliness. Generally used for singing praises of noble men and kings, this raga was quite popular at Akbar’s Court. Tansen sang Mian-ki-todi praise of Emperor Akbar. The Gurus, however, used this raga to sing the praises of God. Guru Arjan Dev Ji sang as follows:
    “I have just one God, my Lord; I know no other.
    The Lord’s praise is my way of life, occupation and caste;
    Hearing the kirtan of the Lord, I feel great joy”[10].

    Commonly Used Variations of Todi

    Todi
    Joban jande naa daraa
    Mai gobind puja kaha lai charavoh

    Gujri Todi
    Tu data jiyan sabh na ka
    Jagat jalanda rakh le apni kirpa dhar

    Desi Todi
    Amrit Pivoh Sadaa Chir Jivoh
    Hou Vaar Vaar Jaoun
    Aaj more aaye hain

    malaar naamdayv jee-o.Raag Malaar,
    The Word Of The Devotee Naam Dayv Jee:



    mo ka-o tooN na bisaar too na bisaar.
    Please do not forget me; please do not forget me,



    too na bisaaray raam-ee-aa. ||1|| rahaa-o.
    please do not forget me, O Lord. ||1||Pause||



    aalaavantee ih bharam jo hai mujh oopar sabh kopilaa.
    The temple priests have doubts about this, and everyone is furious with me.



    sood sood kar maar uthaa-i-o kahaa kara-o baap beethulaa. ||1||
    Calling me low-caste and untouchable, they beat me and drove me out; what should I do now, O Beloved Father Lord? ||1||



    moo-ay hoo-ay ja-o mukat dayhugay mukat na jaanai ko-ilaa.
    If You liberate me after I am dead, no one will know that I am liberated.



    ay pandee-aa mo ka-o dhaydh kahat tayree paij pichhaNudee ho-ilaa. ||2||
    These Pandits, these religious scholars, call me low-born; when they say this, they tarnish Your honor as well. ||2||



    too jo da-i-aal kirpaal kahee-at haiN atibhuj bha-i-o apaarlaa.
    You are called kind and compassionate; the power of Your Arm is absolutely unrivalled.



    fayr dee-aa dayhuraa naamay ka-o pandee-an ka-o pichhvaarlaa. ||3||2||
    The Lord turned the temple around to face Naam Dayv; He turned His back on the Brahmins. ||3||2||



    Although Bhairavi is a major league Raga, it stands apart from other Ragas of like stature in one important way: its use of all 12 swaras, a signal feature of the Bhairavi praxis.

    Says Nanak, this is the path to liberation. Become Gurmukh, and attain it. ||2||5||


    Explanations of Raag Tilang:
    This exceedingly sweet ("karNapriya") raga is attained to by dropping R and D from Raga Khamaj. The surviving auDav contour assumes the following form: S G M P N S"::S" n P M G SBut a mere scale does not a raga make.
    Tilang's highlights are summarized below: G M P n P M G, S G M P N S" n P G M GNotice how avarohi movement drops M and embraces P-G in the second instance.
    A momentary hint of Bihag through G M P N is eradicated by subsequent construction.
    G M P n P N S", P N S" G" S" N S"R"NS" n P G M G
    The rishab is verboten in textbook Tilang but it is common practice to deploy it in the tAra saptak.

    Hymn 38 of Japji Sahib:
    jat paahaaraa Dheeraj suni-aar.
    ahran mat vayd hathee-aar.
    bha-o khalaa agan tap taa-o.
    bhaaNdaa bhaa-o amrit {censored word, do not repeat.} dhaal.
    gharhee-ai sabad sachee taksaal.
    jin ka-o nadar karam tin kaar. naanak nadree nadar nihaal. ||38||

    Translation
    • Let self-control be the furnace, and patience the goldsmith.
    • Let understanding be the anvil, and religion wisdom the tools.
    • Fear of God the bellows; fan the flames of your body's inner heat.
    • In the crucible of love, melt the Amrit Nectar of the Naam,
    • Forge the Shabad in the True mint.
    • Whoever is showered with His Grace, karma of their actions excel.
    • O Nanak, the Merciful Lord’s Glance uplifts and rescues them. ||38|
    GAUREE SUKHMANI, FIFTH MEHL, SHALOK:

    I bow to the True Guru.
    I bow to the Great, Divine Guru. || 1 ||

    Raag Darbari Kanhara

    Explanation :
    http://www.sawf.org/audio/kanada/jha_darbarispeak.ram

    Legend assigns to Tansen credit for giving the ancient Kanada the new interpretation which we today associate with Darbari.
    It is a monumental rAga, unmatched in Hindustani music for its gravitas, difficult for its swara-lagAv, and profound for its emotional impact on both the innocent and the illuminati alike.

    Arohi use of gandhAr: S R (R)g, (R)g
    avarohi use of gandhAr: (M)g, (M)g M (S)R, SA
