    inspires our hearts because it embodies the Absolute Supreme Soulful music is the Light that wants to express itself in a divine way Even as darkness wants to manifest its authority on earth Light also wants to manifest its Reality and Divinity in a specific way Light is the soul of everything Light is the soul of music Light is the soul of love and Light is the soul of all art When Light divinely manifests itself in the form of music it is the music of the soul Music means Self expansion and oneness The Self expands through music The Self that expands is not the individual self but the unlimited Self Music is the expansion of unlimited Reality We can use music to help us in our spiritual life provided we know that music and the spiritual life are like twin brothers we cannot separate them How can we separate two fingers two eyes They sit side by side If one eye is not functioning well then we feel that our vision is imperfect Similarly music and the spiritual life must go together one complements the other Music helps the spiritual seeker to go deep within to get the utmost satisfaction from life from truth from reality The spiritual life in turn helps music to offer its capacity and its strength which is the soul s light to the world at large When we listen to soulful music or when we ourselves play soulful music immediately our inner existence climbs up high higher highest It climbs up and enters into something beyond This Beyond is constantly trying to help us guide us mould us and shape us into our true transcendental image our true divinity When we hear soulful music or when we play a soulful piece of

  • The Mind and the Senses | New Zealand Sri Chinmoy Centre
    Chinmoy Books by Sri Chinmoy The Source of Music The Mind and the Senses Music the mind and senses Our senses are restless Therefore our mind suffers Our mind is doubtful Therefore our senses suffer The mind has no capacity to bind or discipline the senses Here music comes to the mind s rescue With the help of music the mind binds and disciplines the senses and makes them into perfect instruments so they can be inundated with peace light and bliss from above Again when the mind is doubtful when the mind drinks deep of doubt poison the senses have no capacity to inject faith into the mind Here also music comes to the rescue The senses take help from music to transform and illumine themselves When the senses are calm and quiet the doubtful mind is totally transformed and it becomes inseparably one with the heart which is all receptivity At that time our Inner Pilot the Supreme Musician can manifest Himself blessingfully powerfully and measurelessly As He is manifesting Himself in and through us the divine music becomes part and parcel of our existence and we grow into perfect Perfection In and through us the Supreme Musician

    Music The Universal Language of God Music the universal language of God Music is the inner or universal language of God I do not know French or German or Italian But if music is played immediately the heart of the music enters into my heart or my heart enters into the music At that time we do not need outer communication the inner communion of the heart is enough My heart is communing with the heart of the music and in our communion we become inseparably one In the spiritual world next to meditation is music the breath of music Meditation is silence energising and fulfilling Silence is the eloquent expression of the inexpressible Aldous Huxley says After silence that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music Silence is the source of everything It is the source of music and it is music itself Silence is the deepest most satisfying music of the Supreme Silence is like a stream that goes to one place and becomes a river or to another place and becomes a brook or to the sea where it is totally expanded Silence is the nest and music is the bird The bird leaves the
