    Is it true the Raag Mala doesn't actually correspond to the Raag order in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji?

    Once day I will check for myself but in the meantime I thought I'd put the question out there.

    Thanks

    Yes Ishna ji, apart from that many Raags talked about in Raagmala are not in Guru Granth Sahib whereas many Raags of Guru Granth Sahib are not mentioned. All in all, reading or not reading Raagmala shouldn't make you a lesser or a more Sikh.

    Yes , it is at the end of the Sri Guru Granth Sahibji and it refers to most of the other raags but not all the 31 in total.
    It is a sort of round up referring to other raags in the essence of a family. ie.. it puts them together in correspondence to each other.

    It comes after the mundavani which is itself at the end of paath readings and rehraas.

    Some learned scholars or ones more advanced should be able to give you some better details.

    Thanks everyone. I'm familiar with Raag Mala at the end of the SGGS but I haven't gone through SGGS page-by-page and made a list of all the Raags myself - that's what I meant by 'checking it out myself'.

    It is strange that there would be an index at the end which doesn't correspond to the contents - I only just found out in the last few weeks that it doesn't correspond! :(

    I know, I actually thought of it as a summary or index of the other raags but later realised that not all 31 are referred to!!

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
