I'm a meditation teacher with a background in shakti-kundalini yoga. While my primary area of interest is integral psychology, I am well versed in various traditions and did some some study in the kundalini yoga with Olga Louchakova M.D., Ph.D. who is Director of the shakti-kundalini association and a researcher in this area.
In this CD, Harish Johari demonstrates the correct pronunciation of the mantra that goes along with each chakra and each petal of each chakra. These are introduced systematically starting with the root chakra and working upwards.
This is a good CD to accompany Johari's very comprehensive Chakras: Energy Centers of Transformation. This will tell you as much as you want to know about any chakra, detailed information about yantras (mandalas used for chakra meditation) and tranformation practices. For Westerner's who would like a less detailed and more accessible introduction to working with chakras try Kundalini Awakening: A Gentle Guide to Chakra Activation and Spiritual Growth.
Harish Johari is widely respected and his written works are detailed and quite comprehensive. This CD is very good, although his voice wasn't recorded as clearly as I would have liked. This is the only reason why I gave this product a four rather than a five. It's not terrible, it just isn't completely up to modern standards and some of this may have to do with his voice itself. I think it would have been helpful to have at least two different people pronounce each of these sounds, perhaps a man and a woman for even more clarity.
