Mantra, Kirtana, Yantra, and Tantra
Mantra and Kirtana are the simplest, most direct devices for elevating the mind. They are mystical formulas which, when repeated or sung, penetrate the heart of your being – the subconscious, radically changing the pattern of your thinking and feeling. This book lists over 50 important Mantras and Kirtanas, along with their literal and mystical meanings, lending insight into the choice of your own Mantra, Initiation, the Mala (prayer beads), Japa Yoga (the practice of repeating Mantra), and the scientific theory behind this profound practice. In addition are included numerous illustrations and Yantras (mystical diagrams) for meditation.
