deals with the genesis, expan-sion and influence of music. The volume 19 of the “Pt. ShriramSharma Acharya Vangmaya” series presents truly rare and detailedinformation and guidance on this topic. The present book is compiledfrom the English translation of the first two chapters of this volumethat focus on the cosmic dimensions of sound and the sceince of 
mantras

in Sanskrit implies a specific struc-ture of sonic patterns – coded in syllables and vowels, that works asan spiriutal tool to liberate the mind from ignorance, illusion and evilinstincts. The specific configurations of syllables and the correspond-ing combinations of phonemes in the

contains divine knowledge of the miraculous spiri-tual flow of music that can effectuate a vivid connection of the indi-vidual ‘self’ with
thy
-self. The author highlights the crucial role of
