Form time immemorial, the idea of the Sacred Word of divine sound has been the source of wonder, excitement, and mystery. The Sacred Word and its power to illuminate and transform is the core of spirituality in the Judeo-Christian, Buddhist, Sufi, and Islamic traditions. In the yogic tradition, sacred words are called mantra - literally "the word which protects by being repeated." Thought the Vedic and Tantric traditions of India, The Power of Mantra and the Mystery of Initiation explore the Scared Word - mantra - and unveils the mystery of mantra initiation.

Making this 6,000 years old esoteric science both accessible and practical, Pandit Tigunait tells us how we can use mantra to bring about a sense of peace and total well being, as well as to unfold our higher spiritual selves. Using stories drawn from his own experience and the lives of the great saints and sages, his explanations enable us to differentiate the ancient, enriching tradition of mantra science from the glitzy, new age imitations that promise everything but deliver only disappointment.

Seekers from all times and traditions have completed the journey from individual to cosmic, from transitory pleasures to eternal joy, and from intellect to intuition through the science of mantra. This book is for anyone who longs to join them.
