A breath-taking sunset, a panoramic mountain view or a waterfall in the woods can fill you with wonder and joy. The melodies of Gandharva Veda mirror this experience. If you could hear the frequencies of Nature, you would hear the sounds of Gandharva Veda music – it connects you with nature.
Each of these melodies (Ragas) reflects the frequencies of nature prevalent at a particular time of day. When you play a melody during the specified time period, it creates a natural balance and harmony in your awareness and in the environment. Through the particular quality (Rasa) of each Raga, characteristics such as greater courage, self-confidence, wisdom, and happiness are enlivened.
The Ganhharva Veda Ragas also have a profound balancing effect on the body – enhancing its self-healing capability. Specific Ragas can be used to help restore balance in specific disorders.
‘Gandharva Veda music is universal. It is at home with every land,
with every man, with every society. It is the language of bliss,
the science and art of bliss, the song of Nature.’ —Maharishi
