About the Book
Mantra Manual explains mantra not only from the viewpoint of traditional, scriptural formulations, but also from depth psychological perspectives to make the subject relevant to our times. It gives twelve mantras, along with their meanings, in one chapter. However, over elucidation of the mantras has been avoided to provide space for personal meanings created by the mantra as they connect with the mantra through the web of their life experiences.
The Mantra Manual devotes a chapter to the mantra's effect on one's bhavas that alters the very grammar of relationships and bestows superior, introspective insights into the business of living. Finally, Mantra Manual discusses, in depth and detail, the implication of sadhana in the context of dharma, artha, kama and moksha. The Mantra Manual also focuses on the obstacles in the sadhana and suggest ways on how to remove them through dialogue exercises.
