The power of music

Music has the power to lift us up, it has the power to move us to sorrow and sadness. The gift of music is truly one of the most wondrous things every created by a human being. With the advent of technology we are able to transmit our music to the four corners of the world in the blink of an eye. Isnt that incredible?

I have always loved eastern music, since I was a child I had a strong affiliation with it, it always felt familiar to me. A part of a distant memory.

I am certain I have lived many many lives in Asia, among others.

Regarding the musical piece below:

Buddha Pournami, or the day of Gautama Buddha’s enlightenment, is an important one in many ways for spiritual seekers. The story of Buddha’s journey is awe-inspiring; his grit and perseverance led him to the ultimate fruits of human existence. Even today, Buddha Pournami is celebrated in many parts of the world and every year at the Isha Yoga Center. This year, Sounds of Isha composed a special song for the occasion and performed it today in the Spanda Hall. The song takes us through Buddha’s life – his luxurious world as a prince, his renunciation, his struggles and finally, his attainment under the Bodhi tree.

Have a listen and enjoy the beautiful sounds of India...
