Emphasizes the transformative and healing powers of sound, in a guide that includes a host of mantras designed to help control bad habits, overcome fear, treat and cure specific health ailments, and promote inner peace. Original.
While it is no longer uncommon to find Westerners well-versed in non-Western spiritual practices, author Thomas Ashley-Farrand's exceptional breadth of experience and knowledge makes HEALING MANTRAS a classic text. The underlying principle of mantra practice is that sound is the original divine force. Mantras consist of a unique language through which we invoke this divine energy, and hence become tools for harnessing the divine power of sound. This directed engagement of divine energy sets mantra practice apart from other forms of religious chanting, without excluding them, for their use does not require abandoning one's personal religious or spiritual observances. The modest length and tone of this book belie its remarkable success in illustrating how readily mantras can be integrated into daily routines in order to satisfy a variety of human needs and desires, including healing, direction, patience, and other kinds of personal transformation. Mantras can be used for purposes ranging from the most intimate (attracting love, mastering fear) to the universal (changing karma, saving our planet), so you may find HEALING MANTRAS a reference to which you repeatedly turn.
