Sri Durga Mata (1903 –1993) learned the art and spirit of yogic chanting directly from Paramahansa Yogananda during many years of personal association with him. Her performances of his chants on the audio CDs enclosed with this booklet — though not recorded with professional equipment — have a personal quality of focused devotion and meditative concentration that gives them a special power and appeal in leading the listener into deep meditation.

 

Contents include:

• Selections from Cosmic Chants performed by Sri Durga Mata (informally recorded, but digitally restored as much as possible)

• Excerpts from satsangas she conducted with SRF members over the years

• Memorial tribute to Durga Mata by Sri Daya Mata
