SHAKTI MANTRAS Tapping into the Great Goddess Energy Within • Enhance your spiritual gifts • Lighten your karmic burden • Improve your health and increase prosperity • Live in harmony with the universe Now, with Shakti Mantras, we can all benefit from this ancient practice. Thomas Ashley-Farrand, a Vedic priest, is an American expert in the intricacies of Sanskrit mantra. With nearly thirty years and thousands of hours of experience in chanting, he is supremely well-equipped to write the first book that teaches women (and men as well) to tap into the dynamic feminine energy of love in all its manifestations. By sharing enchanting Hindu myths and astonishing true stories from his own practice, Ashley-Farrand helps us to understand the real power that this age-old art awakens in those who perform it. Through dozens of actual mantras–each one presented with phonetic spelling for easy pronunciation and recommendations for specific applications–he enables us to increase our “shakti” (power) and use it to solve problems, ensure abundance, create health and well-being, summon protection, and invoke personal and universal peace. Whether you’re new to chanting or an old hand, Shakti Mantras will take you places you’ve never been before . . . and measurably enrich your life.
'Mantra and the Goddess' is a guide to a life of inner beauty. It includes sacred teachings for healing the mind, and a poetic rendering of the Sri Lalita Sahasranama, which reveals the power of the feminine, and how to realize our limitless potential.
The great Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and fortune. She is renowned across all of India as the most beneficent goddess of the Hindu Pantheon. She not only bestows wealth and fortune in the material world, but also the spiritual. That is the beauty of Lakshmi. When you call upon her, she prepares you for wealth and fortune from the inside out. Often it happens very quickly and in some cases, it can take some time. In either case, she is very responsive. In this book, we will tap into the 8 manifestations of this great Goddess. These 8 emanations will help you achieve wealth and prosperity in more than one area of life. Unlike her some of her fellow goddesses, she is gentile. She is not a Kali or a Druga, she will approach you gently. We will discuss the idea of the divine feminine and then we will discuss Lakshmi in a bit more detail and then get right to business. Let us begin.
We are providing Mantra to invoke the blessings of Goddess Saraswati for success at studies, speech, wisdom, knowledge, education, arts, music and sciences. Saraswati mantra helps in bringing order out of chaos.Most of the books give you the transliteration of Mantra and Shlokas in English only.Here we are offering Saraswati mantras in original text & English translation.English is the predominant language. So we have provided Sanskrit words in Devanagari script (a syllabic script used in writing Sanskrit) and transliterated into Roman script, a Sanskrit word represents sound of the desired object. So when you Chant or meditate on the specific sounds of the Devanagari alphabet, the written form of energy also appears in the mind. Devanagari =Deva (god) + Nagari (city) = City of the GodsSanskrit Mantras are pure vibration sound representing God so it's important to fully read, see the Sanskrit Text and understand them. Swami Vivekananda was initially nervous for his speech at the World Parliament of Religions, Chicago, and September 11, 1893. So before his speech he prayed to Saraswati and what came from his mouth is a history. Til date he is best known for that inspiring speech.It is believed that praying to Saraswati before going for an interview, speech or a performance ensures success. If Sarasvati places words on the devotees tongue, then what human being can debate with him?
If you have read the other books in the mantra magick series, you know I am a big proponent of Mantras and their magickal applications. Often you see mantras as separate practices from magick. It is my goal through my books to make mantras a mainstay in the western occult traditions. There is no reason they shouldn't be. After all, any occultist worth their salt will be aware that occult powers can be gleaned from many different traditions and that to be well rounded in other methods makes for a powerful practice. In this book, we will discuss the Mahavidya or the "great wisdoms" They are, in fact, 10 emanations of the divine Shakti; the great feminine divine that permeates the entire universe and which makes up much of the Hindu tradition. As I have stated in my other books, the divine feminine is of utmost importance in the eastern traditions. These 10 aspects are no exceptions. In fact, they embody the entire Shakti traditions as far as I am concerned. Why the Mahavidya? The Mahavidya represents as I stated the 10 aspects of the Shakti. From the Horrific and blood-curdling goddess on one side and the gentile, soft goddess on the other. They represent the whole spectrum of the divine feminine and thus the universe. In this book, we will not only discuss, but we will learn to use these 10 aspects in our lives. Let us proceed.

Durga is a very special goddess. When I first encountered her, I was a little hesitant, but I knew deep down I needed to work with her. From 2014-2015, she has guided me. Ever so often, I am guided to work with one specific deity for a prolong period of time. It was Durga's turn then. She is by far one of the most beloved of the Hindu Goddess. She is fiercely loyal and will pull out all the stops when she is protecting her own. She is, in many ways, a gentler version of Kali, but not quite as gentle as Parvati or Lakshmi. Durga's name means "Impassable and invincible". The name is derived from the Sanskrit word for fortress, Durg. She has several forms. In this book , we will deal with her nine forms, also known as Navadurga or literally 'Nine Forms of Goddess Durga" Each one has a purpose and we will perform nine rituals, one for each form. Her essence is very much immanent in the world. She has a transcendent and limitless quality, yet she is very present and accessible. Although "milder" than Kali, Durga will still challenge you in ways that are just right for you to get the lesson and learn. When I worked with her, there were time when I was stubborn, she was able to push me to get me back on track. Seldom will she push you too hard, but it can be uncomfortable. Kali on the other hand will shove you right into the fire. Her mantras are often recited when people need protection and security. In this book we will tap into her nine names for the following purposes:Durga Form 1 - In this form, she is associated with the Root Chakra and therefore, we will use her to attain more grounding in this world. This will impact you finances and other related issue. Durga Form 2 - In this form, we will use her to attain occult and spiritual knowledge. Durga form 3 - Devi Chandraghanta - In this form, we will call upon her for protection. Durga form 4 - In this form we will call upon her to bestow upon us supernatural and occult powers. Durga Form 5 - In this form, we will use her to conquer our enemies. Durga Form 6 - In this form, we will use her to get rid of negative spiritual entities that may be haunting you. Durga Form 7 - This is similar to Katyayani, but much more fierce in her energy. We will use her to eradicate demonic energies in your abode. Durga Form 8 - We will use her to attain good health and renewed vigor. You can also use her for love as well. The ritual for her can be used for either of those. I will get into that when we discuss her more in-depth. Durga Form 9 - We will use her to enhance our magickal practice, no matter what tradition. Reciting her mantra in this form, is of immense value to your entire magickal practice. Each of these rituals will have special mantras associated with them. I will transliterate them as we go. We have a lot to cover, now let us proceed.

Explores the contemporary nature and the diverse narratives, rituals, and performances of the Navarātri festival. Nine Nights of the Goddess explores the festival of Navarātri—alternatively called Navarātra, Mahānavamī, Durgā Pūjā, Dasarā, and/or Dassain—which lasts for nine nights and ends with a celebration called Vijayadaśamī, or “the tenth (day) of victory.” Celebrated in both massive public venues and in small, private domestic spaces, Navarātri is one of the most important and ubiquitous festivals in South Asia and wherever South Asians have settled. These festivals share many elements, including the goddess, royal power, the killing of demons, and the worship of young girls and married women, but their interpretation and performance vary widely. This interdisciplinary collection of essays investigates Navarātri in its many manifestations and across historical periods, including celebrations in West Bengal, Odisha, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, and Nepal. Collectively, the essays consider the role of the festival’s contextual specificity and continental ubiquity as a central component for understanding South Asian religious life, as well as how it shapes and is shaped by political patronage, economic development, and social status. “This is a unique collection of marvelously diverse perspectives on one of the most prominent contemporary Hindu festivals. Even those who know much about Durgā Pūjā should prepare to be fascinated by the work of these scholars.” — Patricia Dold, Memorial University

For most, the goddess Tara the Goddess of compassion and protection. Few people know that she has several other natures as well; 21 in all. She, like most deities in the eastern religions, whether it be Hinduism or certain forms of Buddhism, have several different natures. As I stated in the book on Kali in this series, I mentioned that many deities have qualities that we, in the west, may consider to be "evil" but in the east, they are considered "wrathful." Tara and her energies are very well suited for use in Magick. More often than not, her energy is loving and embracing. But as I said, she has a wrathful nature that can very much be equated to the Hindu Goddess Durga and perhaps even Kali of the Hindu traditions. This wrathful nature can be harnessed. With that said, let's take a journey through the energies of Tara.
Hinduism cannot be understood without the Great Goddess and the goddess-orientated Śākta traditions. The Goddess pervades Hinduism at all levels, from aniconic village deities to high-caste pan-Hindu goddesses to esoteric, tantric goddesses. Nevertheless, the highly influential tantric forms of South Asian goddess worship have only recently begun to draw scholarly attention. This book addresses the increasing interest in the Great Goddess and the tantric traditions of India by exploring the history, doctrine and practices of the Śākta tantric traditions. The highly influential tantric forms of South Asian goddess worship form a major part of what is known as ‘Śāktism’, and is often considered one of the major branches of Hinduism next to Śaivism, Vaiṣṇavism and Smārtism. Śāktism is, however, less clearly defined than the other major branches, and the book looks at the texts of the Śākta traditions that constitute the primary sources for gaining insights into the Śākta religious imaginative, ritual practices and history. It provides an historical exploration of distinctive Indian ways of imagining God as Goddess, and surveys the important origins and developments within Śākta history, practice and doctrine in its diversity. Bringing together contributions from some of the foremost scholars in the field of tantric studies, the book provides a platform for the continued research into Hindu goddesses, yoga, and tantra for those interested in understanding the religion and culture in South Asia.
“Sri Vidya begins where the current understanding of quantum physics ends,” say modern-day scholars about this little-known, highly esoteric spiritual tradition that has been carefully kept under wraps by its secretive and serious practitioners. The study of Sri Vidya is fascinating as much as it is frustrating because information about its various aspects is exceptionally hard to find. Tantra, Mantra and Yantra of Sri Vidya is an endeavor to explore the Sri Vidya tradition and understand it as the unfolding of Shakti, the inherent power which lies at the core of our being and holds the key to our worldly and spiritual success. Sri Vidya practice comprises tantra (a technique or framework for worship) whose two main elements are mantra (sacred sound) and yantra (sacred geometry). Tantra can be described in simple terms as the utilization of the mental faculty to pursue the objectives of worship using mantra and yantra. Mantra is the use of sound energy to bring about oneness with the Divine while yantra is a geometric drawing that serves as a tool to reach the Divine. The book delves into concepts such as Sankhya, Yoga, Karma and Kundalini in order to establish the context of how Sri Vidya is to be approached, combining elements of knowledge, devotion and ritual. The author has kept in mind the sensibilities of the modern spiritual seeker and their needs and interests, presenting the information in a non-dogmatic and practical manner, thereby allowing everyone an opportunity to learn and experience the benefits of Sri Vidya. This is the third book by the author in the Spirituality Series. The first book was about the Sri Chakra Yantra and the second book had Chakras as its subject.
