Music can help someone heal psychologically and emotionally. Music-based meditation is a common technique. When making or hearing music, one has a propensity to forget all of his problems, griefs, and sufferings. But in order to enjoy great music, we must refine our musical tastes. It is said that during the Dwapar Yug, the Gopis would be mesmerised by the music coming from Lord Krishna’s flute. They would completely devote themselves to Him. Additionally, studies have shown that plants that hear music develop more quickly than other plants. Magical powers of music include the ability to treat conditions like sleeplessness, despair, and anxiety.
In conclusion, music is necessary for living. Anything with rhythm contains music. The way we breathe has a rhythm. We might therefore claim that music is a part of all living things, including humans. Through music, people can express a wide range of emotions. Music is also another incredibly efficient means of contacting God. We can come to the conclusion that using music is the most authentic way to worship God and communicate with our spirits.
