Throughout this life, Sri Mridanga has been my spiritual connection, practice and offering. Taking shelter of the Vedic traditions, I guide students in exploring mridanga as an expression and development of our essential nature. I am here to celebrate, educate and support all levels of interest.
Study Mṛdaṅga, in the Manoharshaya Sampradāya/tradition.
I teach under the order and blessings of my Mṛdaṅga Guru, Mṛdaṅgācārya Hare-Kṛṣṇa Haladhara.
The unique teaching system I employ comes from my decades of practice, experience and study of Naṭya Śastra, Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas.
Students learn to develop their Mridanga interest into a deeply developed yogic sadhana/means.
Mridangas are made as a handicraft, which combines pottery, hide tanning, leather work and tuning in very specialized ways to achieve a unique result. Our mridangas are not bought in bulk as “ready-made” lots. Instead, they are ordered individually.
