From the Publisher

Thomas Ashley-Farrand, one of the West’s foremost authorities on Vedic and Buddhist Sanskrit mantras, has created a series of training sessions specifically designed to teach listeners a selection of classic mantras focused on particular subjects. In this program, Ashley-Farrand teaches five classic Sanskrit mantras designed to focus the attention on bringing elements into our life to make our lives more abundant—whether spiritually or materially.

About the Author

Thomas Ashley-Farrand has practiced mantra-based spiritual disciplines for 23 years and currently serves as priest and President of the Satya Yuga Bijam - Sanatana Dharma Satsang. Well known for his ability to translate complex philosophies in fresh language for western ears, he conducts meditations and ceremonies in people's homes, local colleges and for various religious organizations. Over the last fifteen years, Ashley-Farrrand has been producer-director for a Washington, D.C. television station, and is a former full-time faculty member of George Washington University.

More About the Author

Thomas Ashley-Farrand, Namadeva Acharya, (1940-2010) was one of the Western world's foremost authorities on the application of Sanskrit Mantra to life's problems. In December 2008 and June 2009, he and his wife received empowerments from Satguru Rama Mata, their lineage holder, to be gurus.

In 1968, Ashley-Farrand began having experiences of a mystical nature, which over the next few years became more intense and profound. He began to read the spiritual literature of the East, where he found eloquent explanations of his specific experiences in the Upanishads. In 1972, he received Kriya initiation from the Self Realization Fellowship. Mr. Ashley-Farrand began practicing extensive mantra-based spiritual disciplines in 1973, when he became a student of Sadguru Sant Keshavadas and Satguru Rama Mata. From 1973-1984, he was the priest for the Temple of Cosmic Religion (Sanatana Vishwa Dharma) in Washington, D.C., first as priest-in-residence where he performed ancient Sanskrit ceremonies (pujas) twice daily, and later as traveling priest based in Southern California. In 1974, he received initiation from Sadguru Sant Keshavadas into the universal mantra for spiritual illumination, the Gayatri Mantra, and other mystical formulas. He also received his spiritual name. He studied with Christian mystic Dr. Leon Wright of Howard University. In 1975, he received Tibetan spiritual empowerments from the 16th Gyalwa Karmapa.

In 1978, Namadeva Acharya journeyed to India with Sadguru Sant Keshavadas and Satguru Rama Mata, where he met a wide variety of spiritual teachers both famous and unknown. There he astonished swamis, pundits, shastris and others with his intonation and pronunciation of complex Sanskrit mantras, slokas and spiritual formulas. From one end of India to another, he was asked to demonstrate his mastery of this complex spiritual liturgy for assembled Indian spiritual teachers. Repeatedly, they told him that he had been a swami and guru in several lives in India. A highlight of his trip there came as he was blessed by two of the most prominent spiritual personages in all of India, each having spiritual authority over more than 150 million people, H. H. Pejor Math Swami, and Sri Sri Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati Maha Swamigal of Kanchi Peetham.

In 1982, when he moved to California with his wife, Margalo/Satyabhama, he conducted meditations and ceremonies in people's homes, local colleges and for various religious organizations. They received empowerments from Kalu Rimpoche, the Dalai Lama and Sakya Jetsun Chiney Luding (Jetsun Ma), a woman guru from Tibet.

In 2001 he became president of a new non-profit organization, Sanatana Dharma Satsang, Inc. Thomas and Margalo also formed Saraswati Publications, LLC, in 2001. In 2007, Sanatana Dharma Satsang opened a Gayatri Temple in Beaverton, Oregon. Satyabhama continues to manage both.

Thomas/Namadeva Acharya was a frequent lecturer for such organizations as the Theosophical Society of Long Beach, CA, and Astara, located in Upland, CA.

Namadeva Acharya's understanding and expertise in the disciplines of the ancient religious ceremonies [Puja (water) and Yajna (fire)] was almost unique among Westerners. Some of the ceremonies he performed can last as long as eight hours. In a departure from the enigmatic portrait of the mystic, Namadeva Acharya taught that "mysticism is the ultimate in personal practicality" and need not be a withdrawal from the world. He always maintained that an increasing ability to serve is the only reliable sign of spiritual progress.

Mr. Ashley-Farrand is the author of several books and audio programs including Healing Mantras, Shakti Mantras (Ballantine Wellspring,) Chakra Mantras (Weiser Books, 2006), Mantra: Sacred Words of Power (a 9-hr. workshop), several other CDs and Mantra Meditation (a Book/CD) (Sounds True), Mantra Therapy Healing Intensives, Gayatri Mantra Meditation, Mantras of the Goddess and more (Saraswati Publications), The Ancient Science of Sanskrit Mantra and Ceremony (in three volumes, plus 3 CD sets of recorded mantras, slokas, astottaras, etc.) and other works. This last book for advanced students contains over 4,000 mantras and is the most comprehensive book on transliterated Sanskrit mantra in the English language. In 2007, he published an extensive Teacher of Mantra Manual, which is a self-study course. After passing an examination, the students are certified as Instructors of Mantra by Sanatana Dharma Satsang, Inc. and are considered as ministers.

For more information about his many works, see the website, www.sanskritmantra.com.

Mr. Ashley-Farrand regularly led retreats at Kripalu in Massachusetts and Far Horizons in California and other locations and taught workshops regularly in the US, Canada and London. With experience in the broadcasting industry, he was a producer-director for a Washington, D.C., television station, taught broadcasting and communications courses as a full-time faculty member of George Washington University, and was vice president for a privately held television company in Washington, D.C. From 1982-99, he was a management and marketing consultant based in Southern California with clients in the health care and computer technology industries. His marketing and management experience included large scale efforts for the United States Army and a national foundation.

Mr. Ashley-Farrand earned a BA from Ripon College and an MA from Marquette University. In 1981, he was married to Margalo Ashley-Farrand in a ceremony by both Sadguru Sant Keshavadas and Satguru Rama Mata in Maryland. They subsequently resided in Southern California from 1982-2006, then they moved near Portland, Oregon.

I have purchased just about all of TAF's Mantra books and CDs. Although I am very pleased with all of his other works, I was a little disappointed with this CD because there were no detailed descriptions for the uses of each mantra. I guess I expected it to be just like the Healing Mantra CD which included a little booklet with a description of what each mantra was for specifically. Yes, I understand this is a relationship mantra series, but there are many components to relationships that need healing (such as infidelity, lack of communication, sexual issues, etc)and there are various components as well when one is trying to attract a mate. I expected this to go into more detail. I started purchasing Thomas Ashley Farrand's works in Octomber of 2009 and while I'm no master, I'm not a newbie either as I have used the mantras daily with great results, but I feel this CD still could have used more supporting information.

This CD included some basic mantra information, but mainly mantra meditations specific to relationships. I would not recommend this for someone new to mantra meditation. If unfamiliar with basic mantra elements, some of Ashley-Farrand's general mantra CDs or books would probably be more suitable. I enjoy this CD, and reference it when certain relationship issues arise, and I wish to meditate for more clarity.

Namaste,
This glorious CD offers a variety of extremely powerful mantras that are very rare to find, with the description of the mantras, their use and application, and correct pronunciation.
It is also presented in a very simple way, for anyone to understand and follow, regardless of their mantra chanting experience, even for some of the advanced mantras presented in this CD.
This CD is a must for anyone who desires to fill their life with love, heal or improve their relationships with others, and even find a loving partner.
Shivani

This product may be all right after you already read about mantras like the Healing Mantras book. I like listening to the mantras on this one.
However, I must caution people following the writing in the CD jacket, because there are errors. And unless I am mistaken, on track 14 on a couple of occasions there was a different pronunciation on a couple of occasions. Then, there was the error with Om Nomo Narayanaya which was written as Om Nomo Narayaya. That's an error in track 15 in terms of what is written, but not what is said. Then, with the mantra for finding a spiritual wife (track 14) where it is written Ramah in the mantra, it should be Ramam. I still am grateful for the CD. Maybe, Mr Farrand was in a rush to get these things done and the one who was assisting him didn't write things properly. He is a very busy man. So, just do your homework when listening to these CDs as I have done. I would recommend you start with Healing Mantras (the book) and the CD with the same name as I said. Then, you could handle the jump into this CD. Anyway, feel free to ask me any questions (my e-mail is watsonpi at yahoo ). Do not just jump into mantra practice without really getting a feel for what you are doing. I suppose I could have given it 4 stars, but I would feel it is not for a beginner, tht should have been made clear which is not a prolem for someone like me who has read the aforementioned book and also has the 6 CD set called "Sacred Words of Power", so I have somewhat of a background. Double check the mantras on different sites. Farrand also has a site, and you can read him writing the mantras out there, too, and you can compare. I am grateful to Namadeva or Thomas Ashley Farrand. It is worth buying this CD once you've acquired some knowledge.
