Bara Mah Tukhari

Bara Mah Tukhari written in Tukhari raga by Guru Nanak presents the devotee in the image of a woman in which the theme of love poetry has been transformed into that of spiritual form. It is believed that this was the last poetic creation by Guru Nanak-the 1st Guru of the Sikhs.

We see the zenith of lyrical and poetic excellence in this Calendar Composition based on the 12 months of a year. It is one of the most sensitive pieces of this poetic form.

Here we present the last four months of the year: Maghar, Poh, Maagh and Phagun as well as the encapsulation of the twelve months by way of four modern translations.
