There is no reference to this raag in the ancient and medieval Granths of Indian Music nor in the ragmala, which is written at the end of Sri Guru Granth Sahib. There ia a belief that this raga has originated from the Muslims In Sri Guru Granth Sahib we find 6 shabads of Guru Ramdasji, 3 Shabads of Guru Arjan Devji and 2 Shabads of Bhagat Namdev written in this raga. The nature of raag Mali Gaura is to arouse happiness and to prepare one to fight against Kama Krodha etc. One will learn the knack of using everything given by God if we take the support of Naam and bow down before Naam every second.
