Publisher's Synopsis

Lama Govinda explains the esoteric principles of mantra and completely discusses the meaning of OM MANI PADME HUM - the path of universality, the path of unification, the path of creative vision, the path of integration - ending with the path of the Great Mantra.


"Lama Govinda's informed and masterful book... is the last living link that connects us with the civilizations of the past and with their knowledge of the hidden forces of the human soul."      ~The Times Literary Supplement

"All things or beings produce sounds according to their own nature and to the particular state in which they find themselves. This is because these beings and things are aggregates of atoms that dance and by their movements produce sounds. When the rhythm of the dance changes, the sound it produces also changes... Each atom perpetually sings its songs and the sound creates each moment dense and subtle sound forms. Just as there exist creative sounds, there exist destructive sounds. He who is able to produce both can, at will, create or destroy."
