Smitten by Sanskrit "The heart of the universe is in Sanskrit.
My favorite Veda is the Rig. It's so cool. The Rig Veda chants
are so intense. They follow a specific meter and melody. You can
physically feel the effect. My second favorite is the Yajur
Veda' more melodious and still very intense." Hinduism Today,
Connecting With Your Inner Spirit
have since become chanting partners, known as Shanti Shanti. For
years, University scholars and Indian pundits have witnessed the
Forman girls' all-consuming passion to absorb, self-teach,
translate and chant this language of the Gods- which has earned
them the worldwide recognition for their tasteful, respectful
precision and lyrical presentation of Sanskrit. Their dad,
Robert, a professional musician, provides all instrumental and
vocal backup as well as CD production."
