My gaze was fixed on his fingers moving deftly across the strings of his guitar. Words that came out of his mouth created a sensational effect on me. My body swayed along the gentle breeze which also seemed to be dancing to the tune that Vikram played that evening. In just a few moments, my body became still, my mind became still as if his music and I were no longer separate. That moment, I knew I was meditating.
“When the heart melts, music dawns, dance happens. Music is an essential part of the flowering of human potential. The journey from the head to the heart brings harmony, connectedness and a sense of belongingness which is what life is all about,” shares Bhanumathi Narasimhan (musician and Sahaj Samadhi Meditation teacher) while casually rocking on a chair and humming her favorite tune.
Meditation makes life harmonious like rhythms in music
“Meditation is the silence which manifests in the form of my music,” says Vikram Hazra, whose music is soul-stirring and leaves you spellbound.
Harmony in sound is music and harmony in life can happen through meditation. When both the shores of sound and silence, music and meditation are inculcated in life, then perfection dawns! In life, things such as stress, misunderstandings in relationships, and ill health bring disharmony and make our life gloomy. When we meditate, we are able to tune our life the way we want to and our life becomes harmonious like rhythms in music.
Meditation not only helps in experiencing the richness of life but also helps witness the real us and connect to our self better.
