SikhRI’s Barah Maha (twelve months) video series gives you a glimpse of Guru Nanak Sahib’s Barah Maha composition in Rag Tukhari. This self-titled video series is dedicated to embracing the poetic genre’s beauty while highlighting the pain of the “spiritual separation” of a seeker from IkOankar, the 1 creative and pervasive Force through the symbol of a husband and wife’s relationship, as prevalent in the Indic culture.
