Spiritual music can be a valuable aid to meditation. Music can drown out any background noises, but also the right music can inspire us and elevate our consciousness. To get the most from meditative music we should listen with our heart rather than mind. Our mind tends to criticise and complicate things. Our heart embraces the consciousness of the music
This is some of my favourite music I use for meditation. Most of these downloads are from Radio Sri Chinmoy which you can save to your Mp3 or listen online. They are free and legal to download.

“Music is the inner or universal language of God. I do not speak French or German or Italian, but if music is played from any of those countries, immediately the heart of the music enters into my heart, or my heart enters into the music. At that time no outer communication is needed; the inner communion of the heart is enough. My heart is communing with the heart of the music, and in our communion we become inseparably one.”
