The pronunciation of ham and yam are reversed in the table. Yam is yummy. Ham in humming


It would be nice to see the goddess sounds as well as the god sounds: o, oo, ah, ay, ee, mmm, eng...(from root to crown).


Sound sample links are broken. :-(


I am unable to listen to the sound samples." Page cannot be found." Thank you.

Hmmm. The soundings for Yam (anahata) and ham (vishuddha) seem to be reversed.


In the Bija Mantra sample for Ham, it sounds like the pronunciation is Hum, not Yum as in the chart. Do you have the pronunciations for Ham and Yam reversed?


The chanting of the mantras are excellent. Thank you.


Jennifer, try Mozilla Firefox, it works beautifully

Thanks so much for fixing the links above for the sound samples, I'll be directing readers of my blog skinny chef here.

Many thanks and om shanti!


The listening links above don't load unfortunately. I'm viewing the site form Safari 3.2. I'd love to recommend people to the site but so many of these links don't work. Do you suggest a specific browser to use?
