Songs notated in this book are sung in ISKCON temples. For the most part the music stems from the Vedic tradition of India. This is more than a book of songs and melodies; it also describes daily devotional activities that constitute worship for a home or temple. And music is a central part of the devotional life of bhakti.

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