Japa--the repeated chanting of a mantra--is an age-old Hindu technique to help you become attuned with the planets and their ruling deities and thereby create peace and prosperity in your life. On this CD the noted Tantric scholar Harish Johari chants the mantras associated with the Sun and the Moon 108 times, the preferred number of repetitions. Using this CD you will not only hear the mantras intoned by an expert but also be freed from the burden of counting while chanting.

Much of what we experience as physical tension or stress is the result of an imbalanced body. In this CD, Mary Bond presents a selection of 26 structural awareness exercises from her book, Balancing Your Body, that teach the listener to recognize and respond in appropriate ways to the body's inner messages. Beginning with an exploration of your habitual standing and walking patterns, these exercises guide the listener through a variety of experiences that contribute to standing, sitting, and walking with fluidity, balance, and ease. This unique self-help program will help to create new freedom in your physical expression and improve your well-being and vitality.
A companion to Harish Johari's book Chakras: Energy Centers of Transformation, this CD provides the authentic sounds for meditation on each of the chakras. While Johari's book gives phonetic guidelines for intoning the appropriate bija sounds, learning the correct pronunciation requires a knowledgeable teacher and guide. In Sounds of the Chakras, Johari presents the entire intonation cycle that should be practiced with each chakra meditation in a manner that students can follow with ease.
In Sounds of Tantra, Harish Johari demonstrates the correct intonation of mantras, or words of power, that are used when meditating on the beautiful geometric paintings of yantras. In the Indian Vedic tradition, regular chanting or listening to these mantras is considered a potent means of bringing about specific effects, including the removal of obstacles, attainment of wealth, increase of love, and freedom from fear of death. These sounds also produce excellent health benefits. This two-CD set is a useful companion to Johari's book Tools for Tantra and also can be used as a background for meditation.
