The power of mantras comes not from the meaning of the symbols, but from their direct vibrational effect on our body's physiological and energetic systems. Ashley-Farrand also teaches that Sanskrit is an energy-based language and mantras are spiritual formulas for working with this energy. They are desgined to eliminate obstacles as we progress spiritually, and help us to make energetic progress toward good.

This is great for those of us who see the written Sanskrit and wonder how to pronounce the mantras. The author also has a great deal of knowledge about the purpose of each mantra he teaches, and includes lessons in history and mythology, as well as lots of anecdotes about real people using the mantras and their sometimes unexpected results. I listened to this on a solo road trip to a meditation center and it was just the thing to give me food for thought while I was there.
