Raag Sri was favoured by the Hindus for religious occasions and is found in many of the old treatises. In the Ragmala listed as a parent Raga, it currently is a member of the puroi thata. Still a popular concert raga today, it is considered as one of the most famous ragas from among the North Indian classical system. Guru Nanak, Guru Amar Das, Guru Ram Das, and Guru Arjan composed to this raga. Raag Siri – The basis of this Raag is steeped in the traditions of mainstream Indian Classical music. Siri Raag is serious and thought provoking in its nature and creates an atmosphere where the listener is led to heed the advice given therein. The listener (the mind) is made aware of the truth of the message and with this ‘education’ is given the strength to face the future with both humility and the ‘gained’ knowledge.

Its mood is one of majesty combined with prayerful meditation. This raga is always referred to as "Sri Raag" rather than placing the term “Raga” before the name. It accompanies about 142 shabads.
