Customer Reviews for Mantra

One might say that Mr. Ashley-Farrand's books and audio books "Mantras," Mantra Meditation," "Healing Mantra," and "Shakti Mantras" might make up a substantial 101 level course in Mantra. If so, then Mantra Sacred Words of Power is the 200 level course.

This this set of lessons is a nine hour workshop during which Mr. Ashley-Farrand expands on the ideas laid down in the above mentioned books.
This include, the history of mantra practice, the building blocks of mantra, the principles and energies involved, the kinds of mantra, and more.
He does this as a true master of the subject -- with the easy facility and humor of someone who true understands his subject matter and who clearly practiced what he lectured on.

I first listened to this in 2003 when I checked it out in the Nashville, TN library. I was at a very low point in life. This, along with his book, HEALING MANTRAS, helped me turn things around. I was glad to get this copy at a great price. Thank you.

The material presented in this CD series is life changing. Thomas Ashley-Farrand is a fabulous teacher whose voice exudes kindness. I bought this series a couple of weeks ago. Since that time, I have immersed myself in this study. I cannot get enough. I feel better than I have felt in years. I highly recommend this to anyone seeking spiritual growth.

I am very pleased with the product and the quality of the CD cases. Very neat and high quality!
What I am not pleased with is how long it took to get here. I ordered this product over a month ago. I even came to the point of not being sure if I had even ordered this product or not.
In any case I am happy its in my hands and downloaded onto my computer.
As far as the body of knowledge and products that Thomas Ashley-Farrand has put out... they are always wonderful and enlightening.

I have been enthralled by Thomas's lectures. His chanting is resonant and powerful and he shares his extensive knowledge lightly.

I was skeptical when first introduced to Mantras but since then I have grown to love them and use them for various meditations. THEY WORK!

I can highly recommend this set to everyone who would like to work with mantras. Thomas Ashley-Farrand offers just the right amount of background information. He has a very pleasant voice which makes the mantra meditations a real treat. The course is well-structured and the accompanying booklet is great as a reminder of individual mantras and to have visual support when learning them initially.
