Raag Melodies

There are a total of 60 raags or melodies within the Guru Granth Sahib.

Each melody sets a particular mood for the hymn, adding a deeper dimension to it.

The Guru Granth Sahib is incorrectly thought by many to have just 31 raags or melodies.

Out of the 60 raags or melodies, 39 are classical raags or classical melodies and 21 are mishrat raags or mishra raags which are mixed melodies created by blending together two raags or melodies to create an entirely new and independent raag or melody. The primary raag or melody contains the main foundation, identity and characteristic which is then influenced by the secondary raag or melody.

Please find below the list of raags and their associated page (correctly called an Ang or limb) within the Guru Granth Sahib:
