The essence of powerful mantras such as: Guru Mantra, Gayatri Mantra Ganapati Mantra, Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra Shanti Mantra and many more Mantras have been close to the heart of Hinduism since time immemorial. For too long, taboos and restrictions have made the lay person, the ordinary individual and the uninitiated seeker slightly wary of this potent talisman that has been left for our benefit by the ancient rishis of India. In this book, JP Vaswani demystifies mantras of their abstraction and esoteric aspects and brings them closer to us for our use. He has chosen to share some of his own favorite mantras, in his characteristically lucid and eloquent expositions about the significance of each. Also included in the book are answers to questions on the use of mantras and their effects. His wisdom, his insights and his profound scholarship are freely offered to us so that we may move onward, forward, Godward!
