  3. You are doing a great job by reaching mantras and Vedic texts for chanting by interested persons. Hats off to you for the interest and the involvement.
    One important point, though: Sloka-s can be chanted flatly or using the kind of music we want (if we happen to be musically inclined). There are no restrictions for the manner of chanting slokas. But Vedic hymns are a completely different matter, and require great precision in pronunciation and music.
    When it comes to the Vedas, the words have to be chanted in the prescribed swaras and not flatly or not using some tune we like. The swara to be used for each word is indicated on the word, and you can see this in any authentic Veda volume. For instance "MANTRAPUSHPAM" published by Ramakrishna Math.

    There are usually 3 swaras in which most of the chant will be done. Sometimes - rarely - a fourth swara is used. The swara is easy to indicate in the text when the script is in Sanskrit or Tamil, but in English it is difficult.

    Since you come across to me as being keen on perfection in what you are doing, I would like to suggest that you do this section over, indicating the correct swaras on the letters.

    Lastly, when a person wishes to chant Vedic hymns, the Vedas prescribe only one method to learn - 'sravanam' that is hearing and repeating till you get it right. There are sources on the Net from which a person can hear and memorize the Vedic mantras before starting to chant.

    I do hope you don't take this as a criticism - far from it! I am overwhelmed by your site and wish you all the best.

    1. Namaskaram Kumar ji,

      Thank you so much for your kind comments. I would not take this as a criticism. I myself have been thinking about what you have just told. I am very much aware of the difference between chanting some stotram and a vedic hymn. That is why I am reluctant to post vedic hymns here. Even while typing these few hymns here, I was thinking about the swara marks. I have the mantrapushpam book with me. But since I did not know how to reproduce the swara marks here on the blog, I omitted them assuming people who chant these would be aware of the manner of chanting them as well. I shall certainly keep your suggestion in mind and re-post these when I can find a way to include the swara marks. Thank you so much once again for taking your time to share your views and your kind words of encouragement.

      Hari Aum!
