The Eternal Music of Nature
Music that Connects You with Nature. A breath-taking sunset, a panoramic mountain view or a waterfall in the woods can fill you with wonder and joy. The melodies of Indian classical music – known as Gandharva Veda – mirror this experience.
About Raga Melodies
Gandharva Veda is based on melodies called Ragas. Each Raga has a unique structure which combines both fixed elements and infinite possibilities of variation, allowing the musician to bring out all the subtle values of the frequencies present at that time of the day.
Each of these melodies (Ragas) traces the vibrations and pattern of a particular time of day. When you listen to a melody during the specified time period, it creates a natural balance and harmony in your awareness and in the environment, and through the particular quality (Rasa) of each Raga, characteristics such as greater courage, self-confidence, wisdom, and happiness are enlivened.
