THE RAGMALA . . We publish below an important cutting from a private correspondence, wbich nassed between two Sikh gentlemen and a copy of wbich bas been sent to 119. Its clour-net arguments mako comment superRuous. It is true that this harmful controversy should rease, and our energies be directed to more liseful work.........(Editor) "On the question of Ragmala, I am afraid I do not ugree with you. Ragmala is one of about half-a-dozen apocryphal pieces and memoranda which found their way to the Nacred volume through tbe carelessness of unthinking ancient scribes. Several of the hymns, tbus added, alo almost certainly the compositions of the First und Fifth liurus, as clearly stated therein. They breath the same spirit, their diction and style, and be moral and religions lessons they teach, are the saine as found in the hyon ns of the Ciracth Sahib itself. The sume huwever, can not be suid of the Ragmala. No amount of specious argumentation or sophistory, yucb as bas been indulged in by the Khalsa Smachar, can prove it to he either composed by the Guru, or copied into the (iranth Sahib under bis authority. All your liest scholars, ancient and modern, who have studied the question, are agreed on this point, The *Raginala' is clearly and unmistakably, an exrerpt from -307 Diğü kied by Panjab Digital Library.
