Book Description

24 Sep 2004
SHAKTI MANTRAS
Tapping into the Great Goddess Energy Within

• Enhance your spiritual gifts
• Lighten your karmic burden
• Improve your health and increase prosperity
• Live in harmony with the universe

Now, with Shakti Mantras, we can all benefit from this ancient practice. Thomas Ashley-Farrand, a Vedic priest, is an American expert in the intricacies of Sanskrit mantra. With nearly thirty years and thousands of hours of experience in chanting, he is supremely well-equipped to write the first book that teaches women (and men as well) to tap into the dynamic feminine energy of love in all its manifestations. By sharing enchanting Hindu myths and astonishing true stories from his own practice, Ashley-Farrand helps us to understand the real power that this age-old art awakens in those who perform it. Through dozens of actual mantras–each one presented with phonetic spelling for easy pronunciation and recommendations for specific applications–he enables us to increase our “shakti” (power) and use it to solve problems, ensure abundance, create health and well-being, summon protection, and invoke personal and universal peace.

Whether you’re new to chanting or an old hand, Shakti Mantras will take you places you’ve never been before . . . and measurably enrich your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mantras for every occasion 11 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback
This book is a treasurehouse of mantras for just about any occasion. Thomas Ashley-Farrand writes insightful and informative books - and I like all of them - and I also enjoy his recordings with mantras.

Together with mantras and their applications, he also provides lot of interesting stories about people who used them and the effects the use of mantras had upon their lives.

Some stories also relate to abuse of mantras, or rather inner power one has developed; while some also point out that it's not only mechanical repetition of mantras that brings desired results, but also investment of one's energy, belief and expectation in their effectiveness [e.g. self-hypnosis].

Mantras do help to focus your mind on a desired outcome, to align you vibrationally with certain frequencies - but you'll also find stories of different people using the same mantra and getting quite different results [the determining factor here being one's belief and expectation].

Together with this book, I do recommend his recordings. All in all, you can sing a good deal of your problems away and align yourself with vibrations of love, health, peace, abundance, happiness, and anything else your heart desires.

5.0 out of 5 stars Om Gum Srim Maha Lakshmiyei Swaha 21 Oct 2003
By Christopher Curcio - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I can't praise this book enough! It's an excellent introduction to the power of the sacred feminine from the heart and mind of an American Hindu priest. The information in this book contains real power and, when applied correctly, can change your life for the better. Mantra meditation is the foundation of my spiritual practice and Ashley-Farrand's books have become my bibles. With a little discipline and the right information you can create "miracles" in your life. Read this book and chant the power of the Divine Feminine into your heart and mind.

By Joanna - Published on Amazon.com

I love chanting mantras, and Ashley-Farrand's books are easy to follow, contain pronunciation guides (very helpful!) and give chants for helping you with all manner of troubles.
I've been doing the Ganesha one for months, and it's really helped!

5.0 out of 5 stars Harnessing One's natural abundant energies 22 Sep 2004
By H N Shankar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Brings out very convincingly, the natural and fundamental energy sources available to all. Explicitly brings out the universal connectedness and simple ways to invoke what is latent in every human being.

For all those schooled in scientific methods, this book reveals the secrets of the ages in a very convincing manner. Enlightening enough to motivate the average person to follow the steps. Shows simple ways to unlock what is within easy reach of all of us but normally unnoticed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very readable and highly practical book on Sanskrit mantras 26 Jun 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was the first of TAF's books that I bought after being completely bowled over by listening to the 9-hour CD course "Mantra - Sacred Words of Power" There was just something about simply listening to that course that induced such unexpected energies in me.

Anyway, I love "Shakti Mantras" and have had hugely powerful results from the long Kali mantra - which is actually a surprising one to find in such an accessible book. (My favourite though is "Om Parama Prema Rupaya Namaha".) Even the stories of the Divine Feminine are great and I've found that simply reading them can stir up a lot of energy in surprising ways. There is definitely something mysterious and wonderful at work in these pages! There are mantras here for spiritual development, abundance, beauty, love, reducing anxiety and all sorts of things - and as usual many come with excellent real life examples to illustrate how they can work. The pronunciation guide with each mantra is I think as good as they get too, though I would still recommend getting a mantra CD or two at some stage if you get hooked.

In short, very highly recommended indeed - and if you take the practices up, it may change your life too.
