Course description

A Gift From Our Hearts: A Free Online Course of the Sri Hanuman Chalisa.

Welcome to the only course offered on-line that teaches authentic and accurate pronunciation and musical chanting of this much beloved chant, the sacred Sri Hanuman Chalisa. Learn from Naren K. Schreiner and Lopamudra Bose in an easy, step-by-step video course that also offers audio practice recordings and a PDF of the entire text.

The course is ideal for all levels and all ages. You will learn:

  • Correct pronunciation
  • Rhythmic cadence (how the text flows with tempo)
  • How to sing in an easy and traditional melody (both for female and male vocal range)
  • How to play this chant on harmonium

The course is divided in 8 lessons, the first 6 covering the entire Chalisa word for word and verse by verse.
Lessons 7 and 8 concentrate on the music, teaching a traditional melody for voice and harmonium, and in two keys that fit the scale for women's and men's voices.

Course Includes:

  • Unlimited access to 8 videos, totaling nearly 2 hours.
  • 2 digital downloads of practice recordings to listen in the car or at other times for practice.
  • A PDF of the complete Sri Hanuman Chalisa with Devanagari script, English transliteration, and English translation.
  • A free 15-minute private lesson on Skype with either Lopa or Naren to check your progress after you have completed the course.

Highly recommend this for anyone serious about learning the chalisa. This is a great way to get started learning this sacred prayer to Sri Hanuman. I recently had the opportunity to chant this with KD at Kainchi Dham in India and was a little embarrassed that I hadn't spent more time working on the lyrics. I have struggled with how to pronounce the lyrics and this course really helped me to get more confident. It's important to get the pronunciation right so you are not committing to memory things you will have to eventually unlearn. I like the simple but traditional melody that is included toward the end. I appreciate that it's free also. It's a prayer after all. But it took time and effort to plan and produce and I appreciate it! Thanks!

With the help of Naren, Lopa and the Sangita Team not only has it been simple and easy to follow but greatly enjoyable learning such a sacred chant with accurate pronunciation. As I continue in my study of the Sri Hanuman Chalisa I am positive that it will help to bring more joy, devotion and wisdom into my life and sadhana. Jaya Sri Hanuman! Jaya Sangita Yoga!

Thank you so much.....I have been chanting the chalisa ( along with A vocal ) but I have never mastered the correct pronunciation and inflection. Your teaching is wonderful and slow enough for me to follow. Chanting The chalisa will be even more powerful wth your teaching Looking forward to the possibility that you will teach in Boston sometime. Much Metta, Larry

I was really excited when I came across a Facebook post saying that it was possible to learn the Hanuman Chalisa with detailed attention to the pronunciation ... and the perks of a harmonium lesson and a skype lesson just made it all the more exciting :) It took about three months to give my full attention to the videos and teachings, and although it was a bit challenging for me, I was helped by the gentle reminders I received via email to not give up! And so I didn't ... Naren and Lopa are wonderful guides and patient teachers. With some self-discipline and practice, they make it possible to learn the Hanuman Chalisa because it's as if they're holding your hand while you're learning it. Jai Hanuman!

I'm in awe at how well done the course was delivered, and the quality of the recordings. I can really feel the time and effort spent. Very grateful to have come across Naren and Lopa, the sincerity and purity are very tangible and comforting. Learning and being shown how to chant the hanuman chalisa on the harmonium in the last video is not something I expected when I signed up for the course, this was a very welcomed surprise and blessing for me! Jai Shri Ram.

by Kunal Khanna

The Sangita Yoga Sri Hanuman Chalisa course is an excellent investment of time for those interested in learning this ancient scripture. The course breaks the 40 verses into manageable segments that are then taught for accurate pronunciation and rhythm in individual lessons. Full review of each segment at the end of each lesson, paired with a slow practice audio download offered in Lesson One, support regular, ongoing practice. Naren and Lopamudra pair up to provide a clearly understood, well paced course of study. I see that the course ends with application to harmonium and singing of the chalisa, but have not yet reached those lessons. One suggestion: I do wish that verses being taught were sung at the start (or end) of each lesson, as the Doha (invocation) is in Lesson One. I would appreciate being able to put each lesson directly into full, sung practice. For me, this is where the devotional aspect of this chalisa is conveyed best. Grateful for your service to devotees of Hanuman through this excellent course.

This is an incredibly thorough, well thought out, and enjoyable video. A great introduction. I'm definitely recommending this to anyone who wants to learn to play harmonium and/or sing.

by david allen

Great course! Excellent teaching methods and easy to learn. Would like to learn various Bhajans and kirtans on line. Loved the course, Naren and Lopa make it easy to learn and also give encouragement at every step of learning. Thank you.
