The carnatic music reader series presents the basic exercises Varnams and Krithis of carnatic music in the universal western staff notation system. The first volume of the series covered the basic exercises for beginners. The second and third and fourth volumes covered the Adi Thala and Adi Thala Varnams. Krithis were started in the fifth volume.

This book the sixth in the series covers more Krithis. Same pattern will be continued in future volumes of the series to cover more Krithis.

Western staff notation system is easy to learn more graphical and gives a complete picture of the music score. Those who are new to the staff notation system are requested to refer the initial volumes of the series where a brief and systematic introduction for the western staff notation system is provided.

I have to thank Shri. M. Easwaran for his continued encouragement in completing this task and Smt. Proprietor CBH publication in showing interest in this project and publishing this series.

I would like to thank to my family members and all friends who had been very appreciative of this Endeavour.
