we are from Russia and bought your book in Russian, and after read it we start our practice with mantras. I have a question about some spelling difference. For example - mantra OmSarvaKamadayaNamaha (track 3 on the CD), when we heard it, the track sound like OmSarvaKamaday( R )Namaha (we hear sound R between Kamadaya and Namaha). In our practice we must repeat sounds from CD or read and pronounce like in the book (in the book this mantras write without letter R)?

Your book is nice and easy for understanding and really motivating.
Thank you very much for your book.

I am a little disappointed. I have chanted the Hare Krishna mantra for years and a TM mantra as well. I thought he could have done a little better job instructing how to use his mantras. But it wasn't a complete write-off, I did get some benefit from this book.
