"If indeed Jyotisha is one aspect of a sublime oral tradition, it is incumbent on all students to learn the pronunciation of its key Sanskrit terms. Nicolai Bachman's CD is the most useful pronunciation guide that I've come across. I recommend it highly"
- Hart De Fouw
"I highly recommend this excellent CD and booklet to students who are learning the proper pronunciation of Vedic Astrology terminology."
-Dennis M. Harness, Ph.D. Past President, American College of Vedic Astrology
I think Nicolai's presentation was EXCELLENT. I really enjoyed learning about the cakras. He made it sound so much more logical and grounded than most present on this topic. Connecting the marmas, nadis and cakras just makes sense! And I had never really looked at the verses in the HYP (Hatha Yoga Pradipika). Most importantly, I had one of my most settled meditation experiences last night. I could have sat for hours! Chanting was a wonderful way to awaken the energy in each cakra. I truly could feel the support of that kundalini energy moving up my spine. I was a little "high" when I came home and had to stay up for a few hours to settle.
