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.
Harish Johari (1934-1999) was a distinguished North Indian author, Tantric scholar, poet, musician, composer, artist, and gemologist who held degrees in philosophy and literature and made it his life's work to introduce the culture of his homeland to the West. Here is a hot link to a web site dedicated to Harish Johari's work that was set up by his students. http://www.sanatansociety.com/artists_authors/aa_harish_johari.htm
“Johari. . . has impeccable enunciation and he both educates and elevates listeners with this invaluable pronunciation guide for the 50 Sanskrit letters. . . . The sounds on this CD are so enthralling it’s easy to see why many people find recitation so powerfully transformative.”
