I'm just learning about yoga and the spiritual side. I found this audio book so informative on mantras. I now understand better what they are and the meaning behind them. I've listened to this book multiple times so I could keep practicing how to pronounce the mantras correctly.

Over all very enjoyable. Upon completing to this audio version it is nice to know a little bit about the Vedic tradition in order not to be at a loss for understanding this very brief description. I believe the most valuable part of a listening like this is to use it to learn the correct pronunciations (impossible to know for sure with a print book) and buy a more through tool to learn the theory behind the practice. I will rent more from this author.

Author of "Healing Mantras"
Throughout history, many people in the West have turned to God the Father for blessing and guidance. But in the East, the Great Feminine has always been held in high esteem-not as a secondary source of power but as the "primal power," the shakti that flows through our body and all of nature. Centuries ago, the seers and sages of India observed that particular chanted prayers-Sanskrit mantras-connect us with this feminine energy and increase its potency.
