Wonderfully informative. He communicates the background and meaning of the chants so clearly. Love this.

This CD set is just what I had hoped for as I am interested in learning the proper pronunciation of Sanskrit chants. This is just what these CDs were designed to teach and they are well done. Freeman also explains the meanings of each chant and how to use them in your spiritual practice. I've been practicing these chants in the car as I drive and listen to the 2nd CD.

I am working my way through this 2 CD set. I bought it for learning/academic purposes since further formal yoga training is not an option at this time. I have considered myself to be a silent meditator, but several of the chants really appeal to me so I'm adding them to my meditation. As it says in the accompanying booklet, 3 chants are ancient Vedic chants and others "are in classical Sanskrit ranging from simple metered invocations to lyrical devotional songs." Richard's voice is calming and there is a vibrating instrument that adds to it-sorry I'm not knowledgeable in that area as to its name. In short- what a gift this work is for the yoga student!

I have listened to many versions of the Ashtanga Yoga Invocation. This is by far the best learning tool. On track five Richard teaches the correct pronunciation of each word, then each line... slowly! This was money well spent.
