Pure music in pure body (part one)

Music is therapeutic and it must be experienced to be felt and notice the real results in the person. In my opinion music is the best way to grow inside, to cultivate that unique humus of humanity (and divinity!) of which we are made of. Ancient musical discoveries from India are just perfect for these kind of experiments. The Indian notes, swaras, were established by talented men who meditated for long time and reached higher levels of awareness and self-understanding. They related these swaras to the animals:

  1. SA from peacock
  2. RE from bull
  3. GA from
  4. MA from crane
  5. PA from cuckoo
  6. DHA from horse
  7. NI from elephant  

There are organs (and also no organs) our body is made of, tissues, cells, molecules, energy, movement of vibration, the deeper we go the less we can see with our eyes, the more we can feel with our sense. As a consequence notes can be sung and experienced at this level very deep.

As a tree comes from seed, likewise the whole mantra evolves from Bija Mantra. And being so, the Bija Mantras are considered as a source of creation. From the realization of the potencies of these vibratory Bija mantras, the Rishis devised Mantras, which when properly intoned activate these creative forces to produce the desired result. [mantras] are like engines pulling a train, and for thsi reason they ar eoften called Shakti mantras.  [N. Srivastava]

When I was working in an Italian hospital as psychologist in the department of Neuropsychiatry for children there were programs based on music therapy for the little patients aiming to restore their abilities of speaking and self-integration. Today the science of music is utilized widely in different settings and discussed in worldwide conferences. This science has got a tremendous potential of solving crucial problems of personality either on individual and collective levels. We are all born with a subtle system within ourselves. Many people know that, many more do not have its knowledge.

Every time we sing a specific letter we are producing a movement around a main organ, or complex of organs. Seven complex of organs (chakras) are recognized to semplify the structure of our body: pelvis, liver, stomach, heart, throat, eyes, brain.

All the petals in all the chakras have a particular letter which was seen and heard by the great Rishis during their meditation. The letters are charged with the specific power of that particular petal and so when chanted, give the desired result. That is the power of that particulat chakra. 

Pelvis area

Wa, sha, sha, sa
Liver area Ba, bha, ma, ya, ra, la
Stomach area Da, dha, na, ta, tha, da, dha, na, pa, fa
Heart area Ka, kha, ga, gha, ga, cha, chha, ja, za, nya, ta, tha
Throat area A, aa, I, ii, u, uu, ru, ruu, lru, lruu, e, ai, o, ou, am, aha
Eyes area Ha, ksha
Brain – top head (thoughtless, no sound) can be Om or ca be pures form like: a, la, ta, la, ta, a , la

  1. Thank you for the key to the understanding of my emotions. You wrote “deeper we go the less we can see with our eyes, the more we can feel with our sense.” That’s the key to understanding of any art. Thus my pictures revive to me when I close my eyes. The life giving spirit becomes the main hero then. When we see less with our eyes, we receive the healing awareness of the whole.
