Ananda Songbook: Vocal Melodies of Swami Kriyananda
Music • Lyrics • Easy chords
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.

“This songbook is a triumph! It has revolutionized accessibility of Swami Kriyananda's music. This is a must-have for anyone who enjoys Swami's music. It makes finding, learning, and playing these songs effortless and fun. Even the pieces traditionally accompanied by more challenging arrangements have simple chords — I am unaccomplished on the guitar, & yet I could play my way through about half of the songbook in a single sitting without any trouble! Now, I keep it by my meditation space and sing some of this music every day.
