Raag Lalita Gauri is a union of the two ancient Raags Lalit and Gauri, named after the manifestations of the Divine Mother or Shakti. The Raag embeds within its structure, The Lalit ang signature of Raag Lalit fashioned from the close coupling of the madhyam and the Raag Gauri signature obtained from the peculiar behaviour on and around the shuddh nishaad of the mandra saptak. This Raag showers on the listener a pious stream of devotion and fills them with a soul drenching spiritual experience. It creates and enhances the devotional mood by worshipping and illuminating the importance of the supreme power.
Raag Tilak Kamod
The nomenclature of the Raag Tilak Kamod can be quite misleading since the Raag has no trace of Kamod in it. The Raag is known for its intellectual depth, range and beauty, and is a favorite of many singers and musicians when they l want to render spirituality. It encapsulates within its structure the vast ocean of devotion that engulfs within its entirety, every listener.
