Music of the Soul

To begin, we have to admit that we all like music. There are many types of music among them is the music for the soul, which is very confidential since it emerges from the spiritual realm. The sacred “Om” is the sound of creation that comes directly from God. There is also the sound from the Supreme Lord’s conch that was blown in the beginning of Creation.

But more elevated than “Om” sound is the sound of Krishna’s flute, from which He plays the fifth note to awaken souls and invite them to His great transcendental love. All creatures are His sons and daughters, and through His great and immense mercy, He invites us to go to Vrindavan, the land of love. The Veda Mata, the mother of all the Vedas, is the Gayatri mantra. The Gayatri is chanted to free us from this world, and the Gayatri is reveled through God’s flute. It is the glorification of eternal love. The secret music of the soul makes our heart vibrate in tune with Divine Love.
Everything that inspires us from inside: gratitude, joy, compassion, unity with others, feeling united with the Supreme Lord, becoming one soul, one life with the Lord, when there is no more selfishness, disunity interests that keep us in the world of disharmony, all of that is what comes from above and begins to vibrate within us. On the other hand, the sacred mantras, the kirtans, the bhajans take us, transport us to the correct consciousness which is in harmony with the Lord’s will. They encourage us, give us strength, and allow us to become closer to our Lord, because He and His Holy Name are no different: “abhinatvam nama-naminoh”: “There is no difference between the Lord and His transcendental name.”
The descriptions of His passtimes are also transcendental. The topics related to the Lord, Hari katha, Krishna katha, are music for the ears. And when the Srimad Bhagavatam is spoken, the beautiful story about the Supreme Personality of God, this also becomes music for the ears of people who are sincere and who are anxious to vibrate in symphony with the secret music for the soul. All the cosmic sounds, everything that exists in this world, come from the original sound. But the sounds of gossip and mundane conversations do not unite us with the Lord, nor does a selfish mentality; all of these things move us away from the Lord and oppose Him. In the world of perverse sounds love is mentioned as well, also many things that attract our attention are mentioned, but they can never satisfy our soul, because they are attempts to be happy without God, to substitute God with some type of sexual object where love becomes lust, only becoming interested in a temporary material satisfaction.

That is why the secret music for the soul are the Names of the Lord. It’s amazing!

The secret music for the soul can take us to the perfection of life. Until the instant that we leave this world, the most important thing is to be in connection with Him. Due to this, even in the different types of musical events, or whatever musical style, the most important thing is to think about God: “yeankeno preparemynah krsna-nivesayet.” We have to think about God, we have to offer Him our heart and invoke His presence to remember His messages and meditate in Him. This is what is most important and what we want most is for everybody to know about the secret music for the soul, so your life is full of songs and spiritual dances, so you come closer to the world of love. And, where is the world of love? What is Vrindavan? It is where every step is a dance and where every word is a song of devotion. There, we will feel at home and any discrepancy or differences that exist in this world because we are away from the Lord will disappear.

Welcome to the world of mantras, to the world of the secret music for the soul.  Hare Krishna!
