Recommended Posts

AKAAAAAAAAAAAAL!!!

is raag reli that important?? i had a talk with my taya the other day n he said that their isnt one person in the world at the moment that sings in raag, so that is y he duznt do it!!! buttttt......then wat the hell was the point of our Gurus putting such relevance into raag (actually putting the raag before many saloks in Maharaj - the purest truth in the world) and us not following it!!!

he was singing Asa Ki Vaar the other day.....n i questioned him saying y duznt he sing in raag Asa, and he sed that coz it was wat the Gurus sang in back in the day, and we dont have to!! i was like WAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!!! so then y is it writtin in Maharaj!!! ooo and that if we shud sing Asa Ki Vaar in the morning.....then like how else is that going to be determined by anything else but the raag??

it just wouldnt make sense to sing in any other raag than the raag set by Maharaj!!

help meeeeeeee sangaaaaaaaaaaat!!!

cheerz

I think Raagis should sing in Raag (hence, their title). I also believe we should take the initiative as individuals to learn the different Raags so that we may identify them and sing them.

However, what if someone has no knowledge of Raag and still wants to sing a shabad or sing Asa Ki Vaar? I think that person can sing it as well as they can, even if they are not singing it in Raag. Hopefully, that person will understand the importance of Raag and want to learn it so that they may sing each shabad in its respective Raag in the future.

There are keertania in this world that sing in Raag.

Bhenji, I dont think you really realise what Ustaad means. Seriously, if went and called Jujhar Singh, an Ustaad, he would tell you he is not. That cannot be nimrita either, because the truth is the truth. If he was an Ustaad, he would say, everything is in gurujis kirpa.

Im not picking on him or you in any kind of way, im just trying to say that the word Ustaad is highly revered. He will tell you the same himself.

Well at the end of the day hes taught me- with kirpa, so doesnt that make him a teacher? So could u define what Ustaad actually means??

If you see the attatchment, its a jpg from Mahan Kosh by Bhai Kahn Singh Nabha. It is the dictionary to Guru Granth Sahib Ji.

Mahan Kosh says that an Ustad is a teacher, and then goes on to say in context of Guruji that, Guru Nanak Dev Ji was/is an Ustad.

Thats just the gurbani aspect of the word.

If you look at Indian Classical Music for all types of instruments, an Ustad is a Great Teacher, who himself has been an amazing Maestro.

Wikipedia says:

* Ustad/Ostad (or Ustaz/Ostaz) (also meaning "master" or "teacher") is used in Persian, Arabic, Turkish (Usta), Malay, Urdu and Hindi to denote a master of high skill

* Pandit is a term used in India for a scholar or a skilled master and is the honorific title for an expert musician. The Muslims in India, however, use the title Ustad.

Like i said, ask Jujhar Singh yourself what he sees as an "Ustad" and then ask him if he would ever see himself ask one.

To be blunt, there are many people who vastly more experienced, who are still not refered to as Ustad, and these people spend a life time trying to learn and perfect their art.

As i said before, this is not a personal attack on Jujhar Singh. We are trying to determine what the real meaning of Ustad is, and the context in which it should be used.
