Mantras for Beginners
Look Inside the Book
Description
Back of the Book

How often have you heard a mantra and wondered what is meant? Have you ever thought about the power a mantra has to change your life?

This book makes the essence of mantras accessible in the simplest of language. You need this book to realize the potential within you and to make your life more meaningful.

 

Preface

The use of mantras, for self-realisation and for knowing God, has been made in India since time immemorial. Nevertheless, study and research has shown that mantras were used in different parts of the world, by people of all faiths and traditions, although in a limited way. Mantras used in conjunction with other practices, such as yoga and meditation, have been found to yield quicker results.

In this small book, I endeavour to present the theory and practice of mantras as it has been used at our academy for several years. Nevertheless, I wish to thank the authors whose works I have consulted from time to time. My thanks are also due to William. Henry Belk II for discussing various aspects of this book with me. Last but not the least; I thank Jytte Kumar Larsen for providing computing facilities.

 

Introduction

Aarti, puja, chanting of mantras — these have been my companions, for long, under all conditions. When we chant the ‘name of God’ we find that it is a combination of sacred syllables. These syllables are different in different faiths and traditions. For example, Hindus call such a combination a mantra. Hence, a mantra might be known by various names in different parts of the world. Such a combination of sacred syllables is believed to have some spiritual meaning, and chanting it leads to a spiritual experience. To understand the meaning and effect of such sacred syllables is the subject matter of this book.

Testimonials
Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
