In 1978, Thomas Ashley-Farrand traveled to India for the first time, where he astonished the spiritual community there with his perfect command of mantra, the practice of using specific sacred sound syllables for spiritual and material transformation.
Now, 20 years later, he shares for the first time his mastery of this ancient spiritual art on Mantra: Sacred Words of Power. Here is the first English-language audio curriculum that teaches you how to use mantras to enhance the powers of your mind, influence the environment around you, and deepen your spiritual practice.
In 12 fascinating sessions, Thomas Ashley-Farrand teaches you a library of traditional mantras with relevance to every area of your life. From work and health, to love and enlightenment, here are dozens of authentic chants that are used every day by millions of people to activate the energy of creation.
The power of mantras comes not from the meaning of the syllables, teaches Ashley-Farrand, but from their direct vibrational effect on our body's physiological and energetic systems. He also teaches that Sanskrit is an energy-based language, and mantras are spiritual formulas for working with this energy. They are designed to eliminate obstacles as we progress spiritually, and to help us make energetic progress toward good.
With Mantra: Sacred Words of Power, you can begin practicing these powerful chants to heal and change your own life with the very first mantra that you chant. Includes a 37-page study guide.

Too Religious Review by David
Some of the mantras are nice to listen to but the view is too religious and not scientific and educational enough. (Posted on August 16, 2017)
Very very good Review by Den
I have for many years been very interested in the mantras and at the moment lack a teacher.
Thomas presentation in this CD set (from our local library in Katanning Western Australia) is incredibly well presented.Very highly recommended.

Awesome! Review by Kellyg
I am a yoga instructor and Mantra teacher. This CD series is invaluable. He clearly explains what the mantras means and chants them for/with you. I listen in my car and have loved every time I did. I highly recommend this for learning about Sanskrit mantra. (Posted on October 11, 2016)

Enlightening Review by Jeanette
I enjoyed it thoroughly. Expecting to find the mantras I already know, but happily surprised with exciting new mantras and finally at the end came the beautiful explanations and instruction for the more known mantras.
The stories of others was inspirational and the descriptions and explanation of the meaning of the mantras were thorough and made all the mantras extremely accessible.
Inspirational, detailed, and beautifully given.

Excellent and enjoyable Review by Jeanette
I am not a beginner at mantras and thoroughly enjoyed this audio. New information and beautiful vedic teaching interwoven in the healing powers of the mantras. So glad I listened to this audio. Thank you. (Posted on February 13, 2016)
Excellent Review by Len
I am new to mantras, and I am so delighted that Mr Ashley-Farrand's audiobook has made it so easy to understand! He is definitely passionate about mantras and you can clearly see that he has experienced them as well. His enthusiasm is infectious and really draws you in and keeps you hanging onto every word he says.
The course is well structured and I like the way he has balanced out the mantras with just enough stories to highlight how to use the mantras.
I'm extremely pleased with the way he has narrated the audiobook as he is very pleasant,but not too fast as some authors are. It's nice and clear and easy to understand.
I'm eager to start using the mantras now! Thank you sounds true for offering this Gem!
On a completely different note, I just want to say thank you for the speedy delivery of a home self study course. I live in Sydney, Australia and was very pleasantly shock at how quickly it arrived! I can't seem to understand why sounds true has been getting bad reviews? (Posted on July 24, 2015)
Review for Mantra Review by Frank L
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. (Posted on January 10, 2014)
