First of all the Vismaad Naad took upon itself the task of research and upkeep of Sikh heritage. With this objective in view, research in Gurmat Sangeet was initiated. By establishing the Raag Evaluating Committee the forms of the ragas were authenticated. Based on this research, a number of Gurmat Sangeet Workshops were organized in Gurdwara Gur Gian Parkash, Jawaddi Kalan, Ludhiana for imparting training to Raagi Singhs for chanting Gurbani (the divine word) in the approved forms. For this purpose, Gurshabad Sangeet Academy came into existence which took upon itself the onerous task of research, training and dissemination of Gurmat Sangeet to the children and issues diplomas after the successful completion of the course.
