- Ever imagined what was the first thing ever existed on earth,in universe???answer may vary according to mythologies,science and beliefs.but when there is nothing still one thing is there..it is sound which is everywhere even in silence of the universe.according to indian mythology when there was nothing the only sound was there as the Aum.and from only that word whole universe came with a big bang.even bible says that before existence of anyone there was a sound.that much intro of our hero of the article must be enough to realise its omnipresence and great powers.it is the one who exists in every souls in every living things.the first thing a child does is to cry to start breathing which is a music of life.
the almighty sound when arranged in a rhythm produces music.the most powerful and hypnotic thing ever existed on earth.it is present in everywhere from beats of drum to the beats of heart,from tweeting birds to roar of lion,from river to fire,from wind to whistle,from screaming to crying music is everywhere.life without music is like breathing without air,tree without leaves.it is believed that in ancient india the music devotees were so powerful that they can control weather.there is raga for control of every natural things such as raga deepak for fire and raga malhaar for the rain are very famous ones.when these ragas are performed by musicians it can bring rain or even can destroy everything with fire.it is full of energy.it is peace.it is the nirvana.
the science of music is very fascinating.it affects every part of our cognitive activity.Music is the link to all spiritual,physical and emotional elements of the universe.classical music relaxes the heart rate and pulse with its very own rhythm.Moderate music can increase your creativity by forcing you to think out of box by stopping your normal processes.loud music resonates with your brain waves to increase serotonin and dopamine which fills you full of energy.everyone knows einestein was a dumb student in his school years.But he died as the smartest man on the earth.Teachers gave up on him and advised his parents that it would be a waste of resources to educate einestein And suggested his parents to find an easy labor job for einestein.but his parents bought him a violin And young einestein became good at violin very soon And it helped a lot to einestein throughout his life to become one of the smartest person.moreover music helps person to remember easily thats why Ancient greeks sang their dramas.no need to tell why most of ancient indian literature like ramayana and mahabharat is in poetry form.and no wonder why we remembers songs so quickly.Music is also helpful in memory retention.King george I of england suffered from memory loss and stress.once he read in bible that Saul experienced the same problem and got healed by music.keeping this in mind king ordered to produce same music and got healed by water music produced by Fredrick handel.dan Cohen who is a Founder of nonprofit organization “Music and memory” treats the patients of dementia and memory loss in his organization.Many indian yogis and maharshis had contributed a lot by their healing and meditation centres that uses music for therapy.
besides all this music is the ultimate joy and never ending journey towards self.
“without music,life would be a mistake.” -friedrich Nietzsche
