Kirtan - The Yoga of Music
Join Sannyasi Premratna and friends
Yoga of Music

Music is close to man's soul. It is a language of feeling which echoes the heartbeat.

Scientifically speaking, music is purely wave motions of a particular wavelength within which confined particles vibrate and transfer energy. Now, physics has recognised that all matter is composed of particles which vibrate at particular frequencies. In this light one can better understand the yogic effect of music, as it is the vibrations of specific sounds which have a resonant effect upon the chakras or subtle pranic centres of the subtle body. This effect of resonance occurs when the particular sound frequency coincides with the natural frequency of another body, causing it to vibrate.

Kirtan, the yogic music of India, has important effects upon our consciousness in two main ways. By focusing our attention on the rhythm and pace of the music, we become more mindful of the moment. The greater our awareness in singing, chanting, and playing of music, the closer we come to the full conscious awareness. Such relaxed concentration in listening and participating, can lead to a meditative state of thoughtlessness and so bridge the gap between ordinary mind and cosmic mind. Secondly, because kirtan stimulates different areas of the brain by the vibrational effect on the chakras, its effects continue to influence your consciousness for a longer period of time.

Kirtan has a calming and soothing effect upon the individual and can be considered healing music. If practised for some time, it can lead to wondrous states of elation, joy and happiness. Singing kirtan encourages a positive rather than negative attitude. To a troubled mind, it is a soothing balm, as the act of singing brings you into the present, and the past loses its hold.
