“Singing is as human as breathing, and this book tells us why.” —Mark Guarino, contributing music writer, The Guardian Popular yogi-musician Girish opens new possibilities for transforming your life through song, combining the ancient art of singing mantra with twenty-first century neuroscience research. For as long as he can remember, Girish has created rhythm to accompany life. His first experience of music as sacred art came in college, playing with jazz bands. “During improvisational sessions,” he recalls, “there were these unexplainable moments of synchronicity and intuition that felt like magic.” This led Girish to an unexpected journey—a seeming detour to live as a monk in an ashram for five years that inadvertently nourished his musical artistry. Here, he studied Sanskrit as a means to understand the deeper meanings of ancient chants, which sparked a life-changing event that led him back to music—and to combining music with Sanskrit chants. Now he shares what he’s learned to help people of all ages, backgrounds, and traditions to transform body, brain, and life through mantra and music. With Music and Mantras, Girish has created a toolkit for personal transformation through singing, sharing his own experience as a musician, yogi, and former Hindu monk. Weaving simple, elegant mantras from ancient traditions with neuroscience, Girish shows us how to achieve greater peace of mind, clarity, calm, focus, and even improved health and wealth through "kirtan," the yogic art of chanting—an inspiration that anyone can sing their way to happiness, health, and prosperity.

Welcome to this interactive ebook on the chakra mantras. Interactive? Because of the links to the companion videos on YouTube where you can learn how to chant. Here you will find easy-to-understand answers to these three questions and more: 1. What is the chakra system, and why is it so important? 2. What makes Sanskrit mantras unique? 3. What Sanskrit mantras are used to tune (activate and balance) the chakras? As a bonus, in Chapter 4, I will introduce you to the Yoga of Sound, the much larger system of sound healing of which the chakra mantras are an important part. Finally, I'll end the book with my prescription for you, a recommended home practice, or mantra sadhana. As a medical doctor, I used to prescribe pills. As a mantra yoga practitioner, I now prescribe mantras. I go straight to the healing mantra appropriate for the condition. I believe that Mantra Yoga will become the new psychiatry, a path back to wellness without prescription drugs and their side effects."

The Instrumental Music Of Wutaishan S Buddhist Monasteries

Beth Szczepanski examines how traditional and modern elements interact in the current practice, reception and functions of wind music, or shengguan, at monasteries in Wutaishan, one of China's four holy mountains of Buddhism. The book provides an invaluable insight into the political and economic history of Wutaishan and its music, as well as the instrumentation, notation, repertoires, transmission and ritual function of monastic music at Wutaishan, and how that music has adapted to China's current economic, political and religious climate. The book is based on extensive field research at Wutaishan from 2005 to 2007, including interviews with monks, nuns, pilgrims and tourists. The author learned to play the sheng mouth organ and guanzi double-reed pipe, and recorded dozens of performances of monastic and lay music. The first extensive examination of Wutaishan's music by a Western scholar, the book brings a new perspective to a topic long favored by Chinese musicologists. At the same time, the book provides the non-musical scholar with an engaging exploration of the historical, political, economic and cultural forces that shape musical and religious practices in China.
