Curing with Music
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
Thanks to its originality of vision and to the special
techniques employed, the “Curing with Music Project”
enables everyone to reach satisfying results already
