Sacred Sound

Summarize Coward’s central points about mantra and characterize how sacred sound has different meanings in the early and late Vedic period.  Then imagine that you are in conversation with a Brahman priest and a yogi.   Explain to them how your own experiences with sound in sacred context – e.g., in church, synagogue, meditation, music concert – carry meanings that are different from or similar to how they experience sacred sound.



The paper should be a minimum of 1000 words in length, double-spaced with 12 pt font and 1” margins.
