Curing with Music

by

Krishna Das


 

The “Curing with Music Project” is aimed at all those who are interested in disciplines or philosophies which deal with transmitting a deeper knowledge of Man’s energetic and psychophysical system. The straining factors to which everybody is nowadays exposed, lead to different types of energy unbalances of the body and of the mind.

Official science confirms that a great deal of complex pathologies are but forms of somatization deriving from the uneasiness of living with an “agitated” mind. The ancient Philosophy of Yoga informs us through the Science of Spiritual Knowledge, that no living being can escape “karma”, that is the Law of Cause and Effect. All this has its origin in the quality of our Thought/Forms, from which action and by consequence Destiny derive.

We can all too easily imagine the products of an “agitated” mind and the quality of action deriving from the Thought/Forms of such a mind! Not to mention the Destiny that such a starting point produces! Master Krishna Das has long been involved in the divulgation of techniques having their origin in the Ancient Discipline and Philosophy of Yoga and regarding in particular Transcendental Sounds and Vibrations. The “Veda”, which are the very source of Yoga, inform us that whoever experiences by means of the Nada/Mantra Yoga (Yoga of Energy) techniques having to do with Transcendental Sounds and Vibrations, can start processes of purification of the centres of energy  resulting  in the calming down of an “agitated” mind.

Such techniques are 5000 years old and have been put to test by human beings for the whole length of this period!
It is also worth noting that these ancient techniques are extremely modern in their effect on man’s present situation, especially as far as his relationship with himself and the social context is concerned.

The “Curing with Music Project” offers to whoever is interested the opportunity of experiencing the potentialities of the dimensions opening up beyond the barriers of Rational Mind. It also enables to reach states of conscience such as to allow actual control of the mind and to favour its highest qualities.
Such important results help whoever reaches them to skip the conditionings which taint his or her evolution process.
Thanks to its originality of vision and to the special techniques employed, the “Curing with Music Project” enables everyone to reach satisfying results already within the three sessions of work suggested.  


 




 

INDIAN TRASCENDENTAL MUSIC

 

It has its remote origin in the Veda singing and it was orally transmitted from master to disciple. Its essence has remained unchanged trough the centuries.
It is based on the ancient system of the Raga.

 


 

THE RAGA

Trough the repetitive use of few basic notes whit plenty of ornaments and glissandi, they express the various aspects of human nature and its states of beings, linked to the different moments o the day or the year: the seasons, the rain the sunset, love, sorrow, waiting etc.
