Description
Preface

The tradition of music in our country is as old as the civilization of this country itself. It is often said that the lord created the entire universe and kept it moving with the effect of Maya. When ever the lord played his flute the Maya got going.

The name of Bansuri is attached to the creator of this universe self. It is so old and so lucky that the lord found it worth keeping it over his lips.

Even if one does not agree with the divinity of the Bansuri one would hardly disagree about it’s soothing and satiating effect which takes the listeners on the sojourn of the unseen.

With this in mind we would like to introduce to the readers with one of the most important instruments of Indian Musical Tradition the Bansuri. This book gives a sound idea of the history development and basics of the instrument to begin with and facilitates the reader in motivating his interest to know more about this wonderful instrument for further learning.

This book takes care of the inquisitiveness of beginners and points out the salient probable problem areas of this field in a friendly manner.

Any suggestion for improvement of this book is welcome.

Testimonials
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
