Raag Gauri creates a mood where the listener is encouraged to strive harder to achieve an objective. However, the encouragement given by the Raag does not allow the ego to increase. This therefore creates the atmosphere where the listener is encouraged, but still prevented from becoming arrogant and self-important. Raag Gauri has the largest number of compositions in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. It is usually sung in the late afternoons between 3 PM and 6 PM.
