In my article titled ‘The Wonders of Sound’ I have explained about Chladni’s figures. In this article we will see the power of Vibrations, Sound and Music.
The Universe can be explained simply in one word! Vibrations! It is all vibrations.
Scientists now have come to the conclusion that the universe is full of waves and vibrations. It is made out of vibrations.
Scientists want to find out a theory which could explain everything or tie together all the theories so far found out. A single theory is needed.
Vibrational energy will be the basic for this unifying theory.
When we speak we produce vibrations in our throats. Vibrations creates sound. Sound creates various forms.
Sound when systemized in a particular manner with certain rules, we call it is as Music.
The power of music is indescribable.
To illustrate this we may see an example from Indian History.
The Indian kings used to appoint a court musician.
Tansen was a famous musician in the Court of Emperor Akbar. He used to sing different ragas. The people will be mesmerized by his voice. Deepak is one among his favorite ragas When he sings this raga there will be lightning effect. Deepak raga will create flames.
So he used to handle this rage sparingly with due cautions. Akbar heard about this raga. He wanted Tansen to sing a song in Deepak raga. Tansen refused telling him its lightning effects.
But being a king, he ordered Tansen to obey his commands.
There is no other go. Tansen agreed to sing but he wanted Akbar to come to a lake.
Near the lake a platform was erected. People assembled. Akbar with great excitement came to the lake bed. Tansen started his Deepak. On reaching the climax suddenly he was in the midst of flames. His body started burning.In order to escape from burning, he jumped into the lake.
Akbar felt very sorry and requested Tansen to forgive him for his foolish order without knowing the consequences.
Tansen explained to him that the lightning effect was due to vibrations of the music.
Each and every vibration has its own effects. They can create forms differently.
Correct vibrations could produce rain, fire, earthquakes
Our own bodies are permeated with vibrations.
Blood circulate in our bodies in waves.
There is a rhythm in everything. Waves and vibrations are everywhere in the creation.
There is a branch of science called ‘cymatics’ which explains everything about vibration, sound and forms.
The power of music is itself a big subject. Music heals a person from his bodily diseases as well as mental illness.
We have to learn scientifically about the power of vibration so that we may use it for our own success in life.
