What is the purpose of Maharishi Gandharva Veda?
According to the ancient Vedic tradition, Gandharva Veda melodies, called Ragas, are not regarded as mere entertainment, but rather as a technology of upholding life in bliss. Gandharva musicians are held responsible for helping to maintain health, harmony, and happiness in society.
The purpose of Maharishi Gandharva Veda is the spontaneous, blissful expression of the Self in terms of sound.
What are the effects of this music on human life?
When we hear Maharishi Gandharva Veda music, we hear the natural patterns and cycles of evolution that govern life and maintain its progress. Since our body and mind are governed by the same patterns, we resonate with them, and immediately begin to function more 'in tune' with Nature's infinite intelligence. This is how the frequencies of Maharishi Gandharva Veda redress imbalances, create peace, and radiate bliss.
Have these effects been scientifically documented?
Yes. Research indicates that the effects of listening to Maharishi Gandharva Veda are similar to those of the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Program. They include an increase in brain wave coherence, balancing of the physiology and better health, more integrated behavior, and a tendency of mental activity to settle down and experience finer states of awareness.
