Arati Songs

Book could have been a whole lot more helpful by having the each song in its entirety written out in English without interspacing with lots of explanations etc. AND it needed the Sanskrit, separately written out, without interruption of explanatins and such, in english with phonetic pronunciation. Then it needed a chapter explaining meanings. One wants to be able to follow along when listening to the cd. Oh and by the way, the words on the CD that is available do not match the words in the books. So a lone devotee like myself just had to go back to listening without being able to sing along.
