So many books, so little time...
Thomas Ashley-Farrand is fantastic and knows everything about Mantras. This CD is rather like and introduction to Healing Mantras. He will cover the sounds on how to say the mantras. The CD actually has a book that comes with it. Perhaps that would be useful here, because this like a foreign language. He has a 6 CD set that goes in depth into the history behind the meanings of the sounds behind Mantras. It would be great if Audible carried his full series. But this is a great beginning start to get to know Thomas Ashley-Farrand and Mantras. He is really a fantastic teacher.
absolutely better because you can hear the correct and precise pronunciation as it was meant to be heard and learned.
the healing protection mantra • OMM DOOM DURR GA YAY NAMA HA
I have heard mantras many times and I even have some apps on my Galaxy note 2 but they were never explained nor done syllable by syllable. This audio is better than the book as you can listen to the mantra sung to you.
I book marked and noted each mantra so I can easily refer back to what each mantra is for and more importantly I can listen to it anytime I like. I even took notes and have saved to my computer each mantra and its meaning. Beautifully done and a must for the beginner and for the curious as to what a mantra is and why it is done.
This book offers no explanation of the meaning of the mantras and by simply repeating the mantras without understanding them; one surely becomes a very good parrot. Hey, parrots are lovely!
"Good basic info, awful voice"
probably not - his pronunciation would be confusing. He says the mantra in an overly theatrical way. As if he's trying to sound impressive and powerful. It makes me cringe every time I hear it. There's countless good examples of pronunciation free on the net.
