harmonium and compose your own melodies to timeless mantras. Using this workbook
gives you hours upon hours of study opportunities with ﬁngering and vocal exercises,
chord progressions, sargam, thaats, ragas, pronunciation; all put together by my dear
bhakti brother Hanumanji — a labor of love that is the best harmonium workbook I have
