PREFACE

The knowledge of\u00cfabda Brah \u00ae \u2013 N\u00b3da Brah\u00ae is an important branch of the Indian school of spirituality. The science and philoso- phy of\u00cfabda Brah \u00ae encompasses the methodology and effects of

mantra-japa, prayers, collective chanting and s\u00b3dhan\u00b3s of the veda-
mantras and that of the N\u00b3da Brah\u00aedeals with the genesis, expan-

sion and influence of music. The volume 19 of the \u201cPt. Shriram Sharma Acharya Vangmaya\u201d series presents truly rare and detailed information and guidance on this topic. The present book is compiled from the English translation of the first two chapters of this volume that focus on the cosmic dimensions of sound and the sceince of

mantras.

Linguistically, the wordmantra in Sanskrit implies a specific struc- ture of sonic patterns \u2013 coded in syllables and vowels, that works as an spiriutal tool to liberate the mind from ignorance, illusion and evil instincts. The specific configurations of syllables and the correspond- ing combinations of phonemes in themantras make the latter power- ful \u2018carriers\u2019 of the cosmic energy of sound. The book presents a perspicuous introduction with analysis of multiple aspects of the physical and subliminal impact of sound and the structure ofmantras. It also highlights authentic reports on scientific experiments in this direction.

Different methods of rhythmic enunciation (japa) and spiritual prac- tices (s\u00b3dhan\u00b3s) of vedic mantras are described here with adept guidance. The author, Pt. Shriram Sharma Acharya also focuses on

mantra yoga as an effective endeavor to master the generation and
utilization, without any external means or instruments, of the immense
powers of sound for specific noble purposes. Although thevedic
mantras could be well expressed vocally as prose or verse, the method

of singing them in specific rythms as hymns was given principal im- portance by the\u0097i\u00ccis. Hence the unique spectrum of vedic swaras and the gamut of chanting patterns formantras were evolved and encoded in the S\u00b3ma Veda.

The S\u00b3ma Veda contains divine knowledge of the miraculous spiri- tual flow of music that can effectuate a vivid connection of the indi- vidual \u2018self\u2019 withthy-self. The author highlights the crucial role of
