The mantra and kirtan (call-and-response devotional chants) of yoga
practice sometimes get short shrift in the West because they aren’t well
understood. These chants are an integral part of most every Eastern
spiritual practice because they are designed to provide access into the
psyche while their underlying mythology helps us understand how our
psychology affects daily life. Sacred Sound shares the myths behind the
mantras, illuminating their meaning and putting their power and
practicality within reach of every practitioner. Each mantra and kirtan
includes the Sanskrit, the transliteration, and the translation. Clear
retellings of the pertinent myths highlight modern-day applications so that
readers discover their own personal connection to the practice. Alanna
Kaivalya has refined her teaching over a decade with tens of thousands of
diverse audience members. Her unique and popular approach to human
connection and self-knowledge turns a time-tested tradition into a
versatile and potent tool.
