From the back of the Book

Mantra and meditation are two sides of the same coin. Mantra is the means, and meditation is the method.

"Mantra and Meditation is a book that will dispel the darkness of ignorance of many students who are confused. This book can lead to an understanding, knowledge and an ability to practice the science of meditation… In this book, Dr. Arya explains that all the existing spiritual traditions of the world use a syllable, a sound, a word or set of words called mantra as a bridge to cross the mire of delusion….

"According to our tradition, which is purely a meditative tradition more than five hundred years old, mantra and meditation are inseparable just like two sides of a coin… "This book is a gift to the readers from our unbroken lineage of meditators to the students who are treading the inner path of light. For doing inner research, mantra and meditation are the greatest aids…

"Pandit Arya has been faithfully following this path of meditation for many years. I am sure this book will help those who are on the path and those who are trying to be on the path."

Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
