Discover the power of sound and silence to elevate your state of being.
Enjoy the meditative and soul-stirring music of composer and spiritual Master Sri Chinmoy, arranged and performed by several different vocal and instrumental ensembles in a variety of musical styles.
“When we listen to soulful music, or when we ourselves play soulful music, immediately our inner existence climbs up high, higher, highest. It climbs up and enters into something beyond. This Beyond is constantly trying to help us, guide us, mould us and shape us into our true transcendental image, our true divinity.
When we hear soulful music, or when we play a soulful piece of music, we feel a kind of inner thrill in our entire existence, from the soles of our feet to the crown of our head. A river is flowing through us, a river of consciousness, and this consciousness is all the time illumined.“
– Sri Chinmoy
During his lifetime Sri Chinmoy composed thousands of lyrical songs both in English as well as his native tongue, Bengali. Sri Chinmoy believed that music is a universal language through which the hearts of the performers and the audience can blend together. Of music, Sri Chinmoy has said:
“In the spiritual world, next to meditation is music, the breath of music.”
Music helps the spiritual seeker to go deep within to get the utmost satisfaction from life, from truth, from reality.”
