Guinness World Record: Ramcharitmanas becomes world’s longest song with 138 hrs, 41 mins, 2 secs

Guinness World Record: Dr Jagdish Pillai from Varanasi set a Guinness World Record by singing the Shri Ramcharitmanas for 138 hours, 41 minutes and two seconds. This accomplishment has catapulted Shri Ramcharitmanas into the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest song in the world.

Dr Jagdish Pillai has credited with five years of broadcasting the rendition of Shri Ramcharitmanas on over 100 official audio channels worldwide. And now he has secured his name in the Guinness World Records once again. He now holds the highest number of Guinness records in Uttar Pradesh.

Previous record set in 2021

According to Jagdish Pillai said earlier, the record belonged to Mark Christopher Lee and The Pocket Gods, of Hertfordshire in UK. They set a record with 115 hours and 45 minutes on December 1, 2021.

While accomplishing the new record by playing instrumental music, Jagdish Pillai created a new melody for the entire book of Shri Ramcharitmanas. His singing for 138 hours, 41 minutes, and two seconds was broadcast on numerous official music platforms such as Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, and more.

Longest Song in the World

And the Guinness World Records officially recognised Shri Ramcharitmanas as the “Longest Officially Released Song” and the “Longest Song in the World”.

In 2016, the record for the world’s longest-officially released song was held by an American artist in instrumental music. Since then Pillai wanted to break this record.

With his own rendition and through his own singing, Jagdish Pillai made relentless efforts to achieve this goal. The Guinness World Record holder stated that the video recording of the song began on May 20, 2019, following the guidelines of Guinness World Records.

The recording was halted for over a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It resumed later and the recording was on November 10 last year.

The process of preparing the 138-hour, 41-minute, and two-second song involved recording, editing, and mixing, which took a total of four years, 63 days, and 295 hours.
