“Trust you are well. I am organizing a two day music workshop on the 19th and 20th of September, 2020 keeping in mind the following:      

In the audio-visual workshop, I will teach the participants one Raga and one bhajan.      

It will be open for both intermediate and advanced students. It will be a 90 minutes session on the 19th and 20th September 2020. There maybe two time options so that participants can choose based on their convenience. The number of participants in each session will be limited so that individual attention maybe given to each of the participants. The participants will receive the recorded sessions after the workshop.”

What is Maharishi Gandharva Veda music?

Originating thousands of years ago in ancient India, Maharishi Gandharva Veda music has been used to restore balance to mind, body, and behavior and to create greater peace in the environment.

Rishis, or seers, capable of cognizing the rhythms and melodies of nature, sang and played these beautiful melodies at the appropriate times of the day and night to neutralize stress and disharmony in the environment, gently restore biological rhythms, and attune the physiology to the cycles of nature that underlie each hour of the day and each season of the year.

About Reshma Srivastava

Reshma was born into a family of musicians in Allahabad, Northern India. She learned to play the sitar from her father and uncle at a very early age and has been performing in concerts worldwide for the past 20 years. Reshma has a Master’s degree in music and teaches Maharishi Gandharva Veda music at Maharishi European Research University (MERU) in Holland.

No registration or fee is required. This concert is part of the Maharishi International University webinar series. We look forward to sharing this delightful evening of music with you.

ONLINE CONCERTS Maharishi Gandharva Veda Featuring Reshma Srivastava – Sitar Live


Due to the corona virus and social distancing, my concert tour in 2020 had been cancelled.

There has been great interest for online concerts. The first online concert happened on April 5th for the Mother Divine Ladies in Livingstone Manor and had amazing results.  The ladies felt it sparked a wave of joyfulness that we want to quickly share across the nation and world. Such a beautiful way to enjoy the benefits of this harmonising, uplifting music, and the much needed yagya effect, for the whole world.  The following concerts have been scheduled for this weekend, through the Zoom format .

There will be three concerts, in three different time zone categories, west coast, east coast and Europe, on different dates, featuring different Ragas:

Friday April 10th 7:30 pm Eastern Time zone – EST.

Saturday April 11th 8:00 pm Europe – CET

Sunday April 12th 7:30 pm Pacific Time zone – PST

I deeply feel the application of this aspect of Maharishi’s Vedic Science will be greatly useful for reducing anxiety and fear in the world at this time.
Your contribution towards this musical event/yagya is $15 (or euro) per person for each concert.

The zoom link will be provided once payment has been received. Preferred payment method is paypal – rpizanis@yahoo.com, also credit card payments can be accepted.
Any questions, contact us at: tmpizanis@gmail.com or rpizanis@yahoo.com.
Feel free to join any or all of these concerts and enjoy the rising waves of harmony, health, peace and joy!!
Musically yours, Reshma Srivastava

Enjoy the finest of Indian classical music from three of the most prominent young artists of India. They have received their training since early child­hood from the great maestros of India.

gandharva-ladiesAnkita Joshi: Her expressive voice and mastery of ragas enlivens rapturous harmony and bliss in the minds and hearts of listeners. In the last 13 years, Ankita trained under the direct guidance of one of India’s greatest classical singers, Padma Vibhushan Pandit Jasraj. She has received many awards and has performed extensively at top venues throughout India.

Nirali Kartik: The beauty and joy emanating from Nirali’s singing has been cultured through long years of dedicated practice and perseverance to master the intricacies of Indian classical music. She has performed at music festivals across India and in many European countries. Nirali has collaborated with many world music artists and is the lead vocalist in her band ‘Maati Baani’.

Ragini Shankar: Ragini delights her listeners with her flawless violin performances of beautiful classical ragas. Since the tender age of four, Ragini has been fortunate to train under her renowned mother Sangeeta Shankar, and her grandmother, the legendary violinist, Padma Bhushan Dr. N. Rajam. Ragini has performed at prestigious music events in India and abroad.

Accompanying them on tabla will be Ramkrishna Manohar, and on harmonium, Santosh Ghante.

The Eternal Music of Nature
Music that Connects You with Nature. A breath-taking sunset, a panoramic mountain view or a waterfall in the woods can fill you with wonder and joy. The melodies of Indian classical music – known as Gandharva Veda – mirror this experience.

About Raga Melodies
Gandharva Veda is based on melodies called Ragas. Each Raga has a unique structure which combines both fixed elements and infinite possibilities of variation, allowing the musician to bring out all the subtle values of the frequencies present at that time of the day.

Each of these melodies (Ragas) traces the vibrations and pattern of a particular time of day. When you listen to a melody during the specified time period, it creates a natural balance and harmony in your awareness and in the environment, and through the particular quality (Rasa) of each Raga, characteristics such as greater courage, self-confidence, wisdom, and happiness are enlivened.
