Barahmah Majh

Description 'Barhmah' is poetic device used by ancient Indian sages in their divine verses in almost all the Indian scriptures. Making the name of each month of the Indian Calendars the title theme, the devout readers are advised to channelize their energies in order to seek physical and spiritual well-being and emancipation. This composition of twelve verses composed by Guru Arjan Dev is customarily recited on the first day of each month in the Sikh Gurdwara before a devout congregation. Its verse is melodious to the ear, appealing to the heart and thought provoking to the mind. Its overall effect is wholesome and inspirational. It is dotted with imagery from nature, seasons and Indian spiritual tradition. The commentary is explanatory, lucid and communicative to the lay reader[edit]
