Notated Vaishnava devotional music by renowned compiler Joan Wilder. Pictures throughout the music scores makes this book especially attractive.

Songs notated in this book are sung in ISKCON temples. For the most part the music stems from the Vedic tradition of India.

Queen Kunti is a major figure in the history of the ancient world. The wife of world emperor Pandu and mother of the warrior Arjuna—to whom Krishna spoke the Bhagavad-gita—she appears again and again in historical epics such as the Mahabharata and Srimad-Bhagavatam.

Sri Isopanishad is one of the first books Srila Prabhupada published in the course of establishing the Hare Krishna movement in the Western world. Its eighteen mantras—Vedic hymns—are meant to focus the mind in meditation on the Supreme Person, Krishna.

Srila Prabhupada wrote Message of Godhead in the 1950s, while still living at the Radha-Damodara temple in Vrindavan, India. It was one of his first book-length manuscripts, yet wasn't discovered until years after he had come to the West. It was first published in 1991.

In 1961, Srila Prabhupada was invited to make a presentation at Japan's Congress for Cultivating the Human Spirit.
