I remember when I turned the page of my first mantra book.
It was a magical time. A time of wonder. Dipping my mind into the sacred arts.
Eons have passed (well, not literally).
Now, my Beginners Guide To Mantras is the absolute most in-depth guide that there is online. Period.
Seriously, read that link. It will teach you everything you ever wanted to know about mantras. Hindu. Buddhist. Yoga. It’s all in that link.
But what if you’re greedy and want to learn even more about mantras?
Then you should read these books.

Healing Mantras: Using Sounds Affirmations for Personal Growth, Creativity and Health is written by Thomas Ashley Farrand, a specialist in Buddhist and Hindu mantras. It’s a beauty.
This book details why mantras work, how to use them and, best of all, a huge catalogue of mantras to use for all different reasons.
This is simply the best mantra book in the world.
2: Mantra Yoga and Primal Sound
In this fascinating read, Dr Frawley explains the science behind mantras.
Dr Fawley says that the universe is created out of frequencies and that by tapping into these frequencies you can change your life.
By using mantras, Fawly says, you can direct the course of your future.
This book isn’t perfect though.
One of the limitations of this book is that it does not include phonetic pronunciations for mantras.
But you can’t shoot someone just for a hiccough. This book is still good despite it’s one weakness.
3: Power of Words
This book is written by Savananda Radh.
A spiritual leader, Radh is the founder of Yasodhara Ashram (a yoga retreat in British Columbia, Canada).
In this book, Radh leads you through everything you need to know about mantras.
- You’ll discover the science of mantras
- a biography of Swami Sivananda Radh
- and many different mantras.
- Plus, musical notations are given for the mantras so you know how to chant them.
4: Chakra Mantras: Liberate Your Spiritual Genius Through Chanting
Activating your chakras (the energy centres in the body) is vital for spiritual development.
One way to activate your chakras is by using mantras.
In this book by Thomas Ashley Farrand we are introduced to many secret mantras from Tibet and India.
Farrand discusses how to use these mantras to activate the chakras and to boost our spiritual development.
Written by the leading authority on mantras, this is a must-read book.

5: A Gnostic Prayer Book
This pocket-sized book does one thing and does it very well:
It gathers together all manner of mantras and prayers and reveals how to use them for spiritual development.
This is an excellent companion book.
Get this one plus one of the other books above. That’s my advice.
