Harmoniums at Ananda

The Northwest’s Largest Selection

The benefits of personal chanting are incalculable – they include deeper meditations, increased harmony and empathy with others, freedom from the bonds of the ego, and the experience of God’s love and bliss.

In Carnegie Hall in 1925, Paramhansa Yogananda led 3,000 souls in chanting, “O God Beautiful,” his translation of a chant by Guru Nanak, “Hay Hari Sundara.” Today, Yogananda’s chants continue bring deep inspiration to devotees all over the world.

In support of this important spiritual practice, Ananda in Seattle imports harmoniums direct from India. After thorough inspection and adjustment, these hand-made instruments are sold at East West Bookshop in Seattle and the Ananda Meditation Temple in Bothell.

We typically stock from six to twelve harmoniums in different sizes and price ranges, so we’re sure that you’ll be able to find the instrument that best suits your ear and budget.

Learning to Play

If you’re new to the harmonium, we’ll gladly help you learn a few basics about playing the instrument, and connect you with experienced musicians who can provide you with further support. Ananda Seattle also offers occasional workshops on chanting and playing the harmonium.

Group Chanting

Ananda offers monthly kirtans where you can enjoy the power of devotional chanting. Please see our Kirtans page for more information.

Selecting a Harmonium

Harmoniums were created to accompany devotional music. Their small size and heart-warming tone make them ideal for personal as well as group use.

We encourage you to visit our two locations and play all our harmoniums to find the one that resonates with you. Each hand-crafted instrument has a unique tonal personality. Variations occur not only between different models, but within the same model.

You can come by the Temple Tuesday-Friday, 11 a.ml-5 p.m., or by appointment (call 425-806-3700 ). Several of our instruments are also available at East West Bookshop, 6500 Roosevelt Way NE. Call  206-523-3726  for hours.
