I enjoy all of Thomas Ashley-Farrand's work and often use his books as assigned reading for several of the classes that I teach. I was very much looking forward to his "Chakra Mantras" and was not dissapointed...in fact I was ecstatic to see that this book went MUCH deeper into the metaphysics of chakra theory than nearly any other that I had read. It was not a introductory book on the subject at hand, and I was pleased to learn a great deal from this book. For someone who has been studying these subjects for nearly a decade, I can't tell you how refreshing it is to read a book that is not rehashing or restating information that is found in dozens of other books. While I was slightly dissapointed that this book could not be used for an upcoming intro level course that I am teaching, I was thrilled to know that I now had a text book for several intermediate and advanced workshops that I will be holding on the subject!

Ashley-Farrand takes the reader through the different chakras, relating each one of them to myths and deities from the Vedic and Hindu religions in order to demonstrate the greater role in spiritual evolution that each region plays. Along the way he provides various mantras that will aid the reader in tapping into the energies involved in each chakra's spiritual process.

My only quibble with this book is that is it assumed that the reader has a hefty understanding of chakra basics, metaphysical mechanics, and can readily apply that knowledge to a chakra practice.

This is an excellent book for those who are considering, or already engaged in, a practice of toning and devotional prayer. I do not consider other reviewers' criticism of the author's Sanskrit pronunciations to have much merit. There are two points in regard to this worth considering. The first is that it is true that everywhere that Indian mantras have gone (whether Hindu, Buddhist, etc.), although the religions may have made concessions of translation as they entered new cultures, the mantras themselves are never compromised. There is an abiding belief in the sacred power of the Sanskrit language across Asia--and indeed the world. Nonetheless, this does not mean that throughout their 2,000-plus-year history, Sanskrit mantras have never been mispronounced, or that to mispronounce them somehow mitigates their spiritual efficacy. INTENTION trumps pronunciation; the most important thing is to have an open heart and a genuine attitude of gratitude. Furthermore, these mantras are to be toned--"sung"--with a great depth of resonance so that the energy centers of the body are vibrated and awakened. Due to physiological differences in the variety of human voiceboxes, of course those vibrations will re"sound" somewhat differently from individual to individual. Since there is no perfect reproduction anyway, the point is not to get someone else's rendition of a mantra right, it is to discover within yourself, on an energetic level, the particular resonation that, combined with pure intention, aligns you in harmony with your desired goals.

So don't stress out about pronunciation, gurus, satsang, etc. If lamas and gurus were so secretive about their own "perfected" vocalizations, they would never allow themselves to be recorded.

This book provides an undestanding of the purpose of our life, the science of chakras and ways and techniques to awaken them to realize the purpose of our life.

This book answers many unanswered questions we have and also erase many misconceptions we have based on old traditions. This book will certainly provide guidance to modern spiritual seekers. This book is a must have for a spiritual seeker in this period of ignorance and confusion.

This book was amazing to me. I expected your average book on the chakras, and found tons of information on spiritual development, the evolution of the soul and more. Can't believe I wanted so long to read it.

Dear readers, you are in for a special treat with Chakra Mantras by Thomas Ashley-Farrand. Subtitled Liberate Your Spiritual Genius Through Chanting, we are given rare teachings through specific mantras arising from the spinal chakras that awaken our further spirituality.

I was not able to put this book down all afternoon and evening. I felt my excitement rise from chapter to chapter as what Mr. Ashley-Farrand wrote spoke to me with the ring of - "Hey, this makes perfect sense."

The book is divided into 32 chapters under these larger headings: Part I: Cosmic Concepts; Part II: Ganesha, Shakti, and Will; Part III: The Chakras; Part IV: Divine Beings and Divine Us. Plus an Appendix titled: Summary of the Chakra Petals and Qualities, and a Glossary.

The author's writing, while imparting esoteric teachings about how we came to be on earth, and how we remain part of the greater divine substance always is in an easy to understand style of expression. I was able to follow his train of thought and get the points he was making.

And the blessed main point brought out in Chapter 28. The Spiritual Adult is that we must always keep love as the basis of our spiritual quest. In fact, I found this chapter valuable to me, as it was a reassurance that the spiritual quest is in seeing the world in a practical way as it is and dealing with it, rather than dwelling on how we wish it could be.

But back to the chakra mantras - we are given explanations, theory, and special mantras for each step of the way to self-actualization and full blossoming going from the base to the highest chakra.

Thomas Ashley-Farrand, also known as Namadeva, is a recognized authority in Sanskrit Mantra spiritual disciplines.
