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. The mind tends to criticise and complicate things, but the heart embraces the consciousness of the music

Ranjit and Unmesh – O Kanaiya.
“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.”
