This is a great work by Sri. Dr. KV Ramarao, in providing us a new dimension on Cosmic chants.. though they sound so familiar, your perspective/thoughts give the readers a whole new understanding of what each of these cosmic chants truly is.

This book also reflects the author's true and deep understanding of Sri.Sri.Paramahansa Yogananda Ji's teachings and how much hard-work and groundwork he had done in bringing forth the facts. I was amazed at how he connected various aspects of Poetry with Cosmic Chants (of YSS/SRF).

Also, I loved the way you put forth about Kriya yoga and how it is linked with references to our Upanishads... in entirety, this book is a gem and rare gift to anyone.!
Jai guru!!

This book is profound and inspiring. It will shed new light on Paramahansa Yogananda's chants and writings, deepening one's appreciation for the great guru. A chapter on Shakespeare's Tempest is also wonderfully illuminating.
