Everyone knows the beneficial effects of music. Not only is music beneficial physically, it also has a major contribution spiritually. Kundalini and music have a very close relationship.
Development of witnessing through music
With music, different types of new-old thoughts start emerging in our mind in the form of pictures. The special thing in this is that there is a sense of witnessing or detachment with those pictures. They seem like pictures of some clear and blissful dreams. This increases the cleanliness of the mind, and brings bliss. This is the main reason for enjoying music. In fact, music does not give pleasure directly, but indirectly through those pictures. There is one more thing. The music that we find more interesting gives us more pleasure. In fact, that music produces a large amount of clear mental images, and a large amount of witnessing in them. That is why one person finds boring music to be very interesting to another. If Anand/bliss were in music, then any music would have appealed to everyone. It also happens that sometimes some music sounds interesting, sometimes another. The choice of music also varies according to the mood of the mind. This means that music does not have its own bliss, but it provides pleasure only through the emotions of the mind. It is known to all that pleasure is produced from the feelings of mind along with the feelings of detachment or witnessing.
Development of Kundalini with music
As mentioned above, music produces witnessing. Sakshibhava/witnessing is another name for Advaita/non-duality. It is also often seen that Advaita and Kundalini try to live together. Kundalini emerges on the mental frame from non-duality, and the thought of Kundalini creates Advaita. This proves itself that Kundalini is developed by music. When the Kundalini continues to come to the mind repeatedly from music, then it will surely develop continuously.
Premyogi vajra’s own experience about Kundalini
The music of radio, cassette player etc. was often played in his house. While travelling here and there, he used to hear the songs inside the bus. With those songs, a clear Kundalini glowed in his mind. With romantic songs, Kundalini rose in his mind as a tantric girlfriend, while in serious and spiritual songs, kundalini used to be as a guru. Most of the time, the Kundalini of the consort was strong, because she had sexual attraction, and he himself was also in his youth. The second reason for this was that the Kundalini of Guru’s form was not awakened in his mind at that time.
After many years, when the Kundalini of Guru’s form was awakened in his mind, she started to become more influential. Then the Kundalini as a girlfriend started falling in front of that. At the time of all types of music in front of him, only the Kundalini of the Guru appeared in his mind. Kundalini in the form of Devirani/consort also occasionally appeared, albeit very lightly. This trend continued like this, and the Kundalini in the form of Guru became progressively stronger. The reason for this is also that he used to meditate on the Kundalini in the form of Guru in the morning-evening (one hourly twice) Kundalini Yoga Sadhana. Encouraged by this, he used to listen to differently colorful songs on the Bluetooth portable speaker day and night through the Internet. This gave him many more benefits. Keep in mind that listening to music at high volume continuously for a long time can permanently damage the ears.
Different chakras are awakened by different tones of music
This is often said in yoga discussion, and it is natural. Each tone produces an emotion. The emotion generated by a particular tone correspond to the emotion associated with the Muladhara chakra, the sentiment produced from someone else tone matches to that of swadhishtnana chakra, and that from any other tone affects heart chakra, and so on. Children’s songs have the greatest effect on the heart chakra; romantic songs have the most effect on sexual chakras. In fact, Kundalini is being formed in the mind, no matter which chakra is active. That is why it is said that all types of music are beneficial. Similarly, there is music in every sound of creation, because all kinds of sounds excite Kundalini.
Every sensation helps to express kundalini over it accompanied with witnessing of the thoughts. Hearing is one of the purest and powerful sensations.
Listening to music with Kundalini Yoga is a wonderful experience. For example, along with other sensations in the upper part, the sensation of hearing also focuses on the heart chakra. Through the bandhas/locks, the sensations / Prana of the body below heart also are focused on the heart chakra, coming up. Upward and downward sensations collide and create a subtle explosion, which causes the Kundalini to glow on the heart chakra, and becomes very clear, creating bliss. Similarly, for the Sahasrara Chakra, the sensations going from the bottom up / Prana also take up the auditory sensation, and brighten the Kundalini on Sahasrara. Similarly, in the case of other chakra, one should understand the similar pattern.
Music in spirituality has to move me. It has to transport me to different realms. It has to activate and ignite my emotional body.IMPORTANCE OF MUSIC IN SPIRITUAL PRACTICE
