Raagmaalaa is gurbani. Raagmaala is gurbani in the form of summation of tunes in divine admiration. Gurbani is divine admiration. There is nothing in siree guru granth sahib which is not gurbani. Everything in it is gurbani.Ragmaala is a master piece in the form of divine admiratiion through the summation of classical tunes of siree guru granth sahib. if one understands only as the summation of tunes and understands only that much, then it is only tunes to him. By the way who is he in terms of universal truth? it admires and praises God in the name of every major tune. Everyone of the six major tunes is refferred to as God and all are said to be the sons of that God in the name of the tune. So I will call it as gurbani. By Swarn singh Bains. The person who interprets the tunes as six wives and eight sons is in the dark. Asht means all not eight. he does not understand the meaning at all. he is well merged in women and children. all are the sons of God not six wives or sons. that is one of the major reasons that some scholars have translated ti in terms of six wives and 48 sons. shame on that. it doe not mean that way at all. what it means is that six major tunes have been sung in God's admiration in the group of five sub tunes. and all are the sons of God whether they are eighteen ten or twenty. It is written this way in order to complete the poetry couplet. it does not mean 48 as some people have interpretted it. If God has six wives, then how is this civilization counted to be six billions. As christians say that christ was the son of God, same way some of our scholars translate that God has 48 sons. Word nari means a woman or a vein. here it represents veins and the veins are further reffered as sub tunes. By the way who are those six wives and 48 sons? can the scholars who interpret this way tell who they are? What about the rest of the world. Think and answer O scholars who wrote that God has 48 sons. there is some mystery and misunderstanding here. tks Edit
