Ananda Music and Consciousness: Part One

Nayaswami Nirmala
April 28, 2021

Yogananda said, “Sound or vibration is the most powerful force in the universe.” It’s the easiest way to realize God of the eight ways that He is experienced. Why is this? The answer is that we ourselves ARE vibration, created from the “Word of God,” the vibration of AUM that permeates every atom of cream. We all have preferences and affinities for different styles of music, but another aspect of music to be considered is something that Swami Kriyananda said: “Music isn’t a matter of taste; it’s a matter of consciousness.” If we consider the consciousness of the music we listen to, then we can start to understand its effect on us and realize that it is a powerful influence to be aware of, and must be used wisely!
