“If you want to know me, listen to my music.” – Swami Kriyananda
Ananda Sangha Publications is delighted to announce the Ananda Song Book, a precious compilation of all 190 of Swamiji’s vocal melodies.
A great resource for Ananda musicians, devotees, and all who love music as a sacred art form.
Swami Kriyananda composed over 400 pieces of music, each of them a tribute to the discipleship he exemplified toward his Guru, Paramhansa Yogananda.
In this first-of-its-kind song book, Karen Gamov and team have offered us a precious gift!
It contains lyrics & chords for all 190 of Swamiji’s vocal melodies. Their blessed labour of love offers our souls the sacred opportunity to listen and play its true song in God.
Let’s sing out with joy!
This collection is all 190 of Swami Kriyananda’s vocal melodies in one place for the first time.
For Ananda musicians, these songs have become the inner soundtrack of our spiritual aspiration. They grow sweeter with each passing year as they gradually reveal more of their meaning. Many people have been profoundly touched by this music. Some have been healed.
May this music do the same for you.
Extra choral parts and complex instrumentation have been removed. Optional key changes are provided for ease of group singing. Beginning guitarists and pianists will find most of the music easy to learn and play. Long-time Ananda musicians will discover gems they may never have heard before.
This music is for personal enjoyment, group sing-alongs, and performances.
Whether you hum in the shower, sing in your car, perform for others, or even if you think you can’t sing, this songbook is for you. May it become a dog-eared companion: well-worn, and well-loved.
