Rag Asa is under the first pehar of the day from 3am to 6am

Why dont the world do Asa Raag within the correct time??????????????? or when people do reharaas after lunch (sarcastic)

Its weird when people start Asa di Vaar at 9am :rolleyes:

"Rag Asa is under the first pehar of the day from 3am to 6am"

Sikhs don't follow time lines for performance of kirtan. This concept has only been introduced in recent times. Goindval Pothis were constructed with time line concept i.e. raags were sectioned into the Pehars, but Guru Arjun dev Ji completely did away with that in Aad Granth.

The oldet kirtan traditions i.e. rababis, don't follow time line concept either - its part of the evolving Indian Musical Science - Gurus did away with these impractical measures.

Ones expression of Bani in any mood is not time bound - to say so is durmat.

Well said Khaalis. An example is in Darbar Sahib where most often the last shabad just b4 raehraas sahib is sung in raag asa to set the right musical mood since the preceding So Dar section is sung in raag asa b4 the tabia vale gyanee takes over the rest of Raehraas reading. Likewise when Asa ki // is sung, during the course of singing ,you normally start shifting from raag asa to other ragas like Todi,Asavari, Bhervee, and, as you do this, you may decide to do a couple of 'shekas' of 1 of the raginis of Bhervee ,i.e malkauns or even venture on to other complimentary ragas for a good flow like Rageshwari , chanderkauns ,shivranjeni , or even gunkeli . Likewise Sri raag, darbari kanra, madhuventi , etc are considered by many as midnight ragas but they fit in fine with keertan being done at dusk, if you look up the keertan of ragees like dharam singh zakhmi , nihang balbir singh, and the rest.A lot of times during evening keertan sessions in a gurudwara a 1st heavy raga(e.g sorath,gauree,tilang, jaijawantee is normally proceeded by a second shabad sung in a 'lighter' raga set to a more rhymatic kehrva taal such as bhupali or dhanasree or even a morning raag like bhervee.

The most important thing apart from ragas is correct pronounciation ,rehaos at the right place. And of course whichever way you choose to sing, the most important thing is to sing with nimarta and lots of prem ras. No matter how technically right you get your keertan.... if you and the keertan being sung are not radiating with prem ras, your keertan just becomes flat and devoid of emotion and joy and leaves a flat taste.

Keertan is built up love for Gurujee bursting out through your voice throat, like how a volcano erupts spewing out hot molten lava.
