Natesh's Bliss of Kirtan Music Book
(Download link is found below or click on the cover image.)
I'm delighted to make this extensive collection of my chant compositions available as a free downloadable PDF to kirtan lovers around the world, for whatever support it may provide in making the profound spiritual practice that is kirtan more accessible to more people. There are many chants to Ganesh, to the various forms of Devi, to Rama (and Sita and Hanuman) and Krishna (and Radha), to Shiva and some other chants along with an entirely new section at the end devoted to chants to Mohanji and the Guru Mandala (lineage) of his tradition.
The book now contains over 180 chants I've composed since 2004 (with a couple of chants composed in the 1980's). The latest edition has a couple of new chants added since the 2022 edition and numerous corrections.

The book begins with a few introductory pages, including a guitar chord diagram, and then an index to the chant music, organized into categories: Ganesh, Devi, Krishna and Rama (and Their Beloveds), Shiva, Other and, finally, the new section of Mohanji and Guru Mandala chants/songs. The bulk of the book is the actual sheet music for the chants, including lyrics and chords and separate guitar chords using a capo, when appropriate.
As noted above, I've also provided a button so that you can make a donation through Paypal if you wish. However, the Donate button will not step you through a download process.

Bliss of Kirtan Music Book by Natesh - 2024 Edition (PDF)
If you haven’t done so already, may you soon discover the bliss of kirtan! If you don't have the opportunity to chant on a regular basis in your area, I hope you'll consider creating one. This book can help get you started. Please be sure to check out the links for the different chants in the index to hear them 'in action'.
Everyone is welcome to use these chants for live kirtan and you may even record them if you like without compensating me. However, if you do record any of the chants from this book with the intention that those recordings be heard by others, I do request that you please acknowledge me as the source of the composition.
