Mere Mun Album


Mere Mun is the first of its kind album compiled together of Shabad Kirtan sung in each of the various different Raags from within the Sikh Scripture using Sikh string instruments.

Compiled to enhance the listener's inner dialogue and understanding to their emotional state so they may live as the true expression of themselves. ⁠The album plays a significant role in our Raj Academy online courses as an invaluable resource for emotional awareness and creating a balanced life. Discover and listen to the album here.

The album received a nomination from the Guinness World Records for being the first compilation to contain 59 tracks composed, produced, sung, and performed by one individual. Watch the first interview on the Mere Mun Album.

Gurprasad Raag Kirtan Darbar


Feeling blessed within Sangat. Here’s how 6 hours of Raag Kirtan looked like by parents, graduates and students from Southall, Croydon, Woolwich and Ilford.

It was lovely to see everyone come together after our last November Dukh Bhanjan event. If you would love to be part of a wonderful supportive sangat, contact us on learning Kirtan.

Rather a listener over a learner?

You can help support making Raag Kirtan programs and Kirtan camps more available to Gurdwaras here.  Your support is greatly appreciated by students.

"Have been listening to your collection of Raag-based shabad for all these years. It gives my mind the ultimate solace. Never been hooked better than this. God has shown through you the correct way of singing shabads well forgotten by the Sikh religion. This is Meditative bliss. You are blessed to sing Raag Adharit shabad by the Gurus. I must say you are very well forwarding the invaluable Sewa through Raj conservative project in Europe."

- Sunny

"You are truly blessed having listened to this vibrating musical melody throughout creation also in the present of lord house suchkhand hand of God upon your head will always be guiding you, may I take blessings from you and now to our lord vibrating musical instruments in infinite realities Lord bless you all."
