Music is all
round us. It marks every event of our life, from
birth, mirage and death to the phases in-between.
Man has long known that music has the ability to
calm, cajole and rejuvenate. But it is only
recently that science has begun to understand,
study and document the effects of music in
methodology, which leaves little room for doubt.
It is now an
established fact that music helps all living
creatures - from plants to birds and animals and
man - to grow and rejuvenate. Music permeates the
cells of all living beings, alters mood swings,
cell division, heals the ailing, includes sleep,
creates wakefulness, and dances with the mood, the
mind and the soul.
With the rishis
of ancient India and the Vedas first documented
the effects of music on the human being and all
life, it was left to the western world of fashion
the more modern concepts of healing through music.
There are now serious music therapy courses in the
world's best universities and remunerative
openings abroad for music therapists. This book
dwells heavily on the findings from ancient India
and the masters of today who have made music
therapy a viable healing alternative. It is the
most comprehensive guide on the healing powers of
sound & music.
