CHINMAYA BHAKTI PRAVAH
"Sound is a basic disturbance. When it does not convey any meaning it is noise. When it conveys a meaning, it is word. And words arranged in proper syntax and conveying a fullness of thought become a sentence, in prose. The same idea expressed in metrical composition becomes poetry. Poetry soaked in emotion and cadenced in its own harmony and rhythm becomes music."
- Swami Chinmayananda
"Classical music is rich in its devotional sentiment because it has the rare and precious ability-to raise us to sub 'me heights. This is because, in devotional music, both the lyrics an melody kindle the jnana and bhakti elements in us and fuse the two. This fosters a stirring of the heart-an expansion within that is moving and blissful. Thus music integrates the heart and head and purifies us. So it is a wonderful sadhana. "
-Swami Tejomayananda Head of Chinmaya Mission Worldwide
