The power of Indian Classical Music October 27, 2007

 

Let me tell you a sort story I heard form a friend in Berlin.

There were 3 concerts of Indian Classical Music (vocal and instrumental) held by Sahaja Yogis in Berlin, Germany.

One Iranian fellow was more than astonished and commented the concerts this way.

After the first concert he said “I have to reload my mind!”

After the second concert he said “I would need at least 3 concerts to reload my mind”.

After the third concert he was deeply touched to the tears and said, he has realized why he felt so much comfortable at the concerts: “Because they were singing about God and the soul”.

—————

For those my readers who are not familiar with Indian Classical Music, I HIGHLY recommend to start listening to it. It is something so special and so alive – none of the other music kind can be compared to it – and later I will tell you why, the topic is worth a solid post…

LOVE, axinia

    There is a key difference in ordinary music and Indian classical music.

    Both of them give us happiness and make us more energetic – listening to dance music for example we feel our foot starts tapping… so much of energy we just do something or the other.

    In most conventional music, this gratification is instant and immediate… kind of like fast food – there is a rapid rise of energy. Whereas in Indian classical music, the rise of energy is very gentle and gradual and subtle… one gets gradually drawn into it. It demands greater patience and abilitity to listen, and with this the music can invoke really deep emotions and feelings – these make us feel more truly ALIVE than ever before 🙂

    Thanks Axina for an excellent post and bringing awareness about these beautiful ideas in your own lovely style!

    You might find this an interesting post: music out of the ordinary
