vibrations are the primary
causes for illnesses. Different
ragas are said to rectify the
frequencies of different
energy centres which enable
the free flow of Prana without
blockages thus healing the
illness.
The Ancient treatise of the
Art of Celestial Music or
Gandharva Veda explored the divine power of
music. Thus, Chakras poise the physical, emotional,
spiritual and intellectual being of the individual and
can be balanced by music, love and meditation.
Ragas heal the mind, body and soul.
Whether plants, animals or humans,
everything in the universe is connected with each
other through vibrations, every object having
its own natural frequency. Whatever energy is
given out is also received back. Music creates the
atmosphere conducive to a calm and peaceful
energy level which in turn enables healing.
