How Music Heals
Nada (The Sound of Music)
A look back into the history of humanity shows us that human beings have always expressed emotions through music. Whether it is joy, anguish, or excitement, it is done effortlessly even without formal knowledge of music or its techniques. Music is so deeply ingrained within us that very few of us give any special thought as to where it originates. It is essentially created from feelings of happiness or sadness, which come from the mind.
Music therapists have typically focused on Raga’s (melodious tune) vibrations and effects on the nervous system. Sri Swamiji takes it a step further by reaching out to the Nada Bindu (the center point) to stimulate and heal. This technique is called Nada Yoga Chikitsa, or healing through music. Ragas, or musical chords with vibrations, emerge out of this Nada like the waves of an ocean or Sagara—hence the name Raga Sagara. The word “Ra Ga Sa Ga Ra” is a palindrome that has been coined by Sri Swamiji to signify the yogic technique of Life Cycle.
