Maharishi Speaks on Gandharva Veda

'Every level of creation is a frequency. One frequency melts into the other, and this is how the process of evolution takes place. The night comes to an end and the dawn begins. At dawn, when the darkness and dullness of the night is over, some inspiring freshness comes and there is a different frequency in the whole atmosphere. At midday, there is another big change in frequency; at evening, a different frequency; at midnight, a different frequency. This cycle of change is perpetual, and because everything is a frequency there is sound at every stage.

 'From morning to morning the melody of Nature is changing. Gandharva music goes with the time, setting its melodies according to the changing Nature. It sets forth those very natural melodies which match with the process of evolution. It provides a powerful harmonising influence in the whole atmosphere to balance imbalances in Nature.

 'Everything in the universe is in perfect harmony with everyone, and infinite diversity with infinite dynamism moving around, but there is a rhythm, there is a flow, there is an order in the rhythmic patterns of the evolutionary process in the universe.

 

'The universe we know to be an ever-expanding universe. The ever­expanding mechanics of creation and evolution are all very rhythmical, are all very melodious, and this rhythm and melody is the field of Gandharva.

'We say: Gandharva music is the music of the universe, is the music of the basic intelligence, is the melody in which the fundamental intelligence of Nature moves and administers and governs all the infinite diversity of everything that is there in the universe in the most orderly way. Gandharva Veda music is the Music of Nature, which governs the universe from point to infinity, and for every stage of evolution.

'Gandharva music is the eternal melody of Nature, spontaneously sung in all levels of creation, from the most minute to the huge, enormous, ever­expanding universe.

'Gandharva music is universal. It is at home with every land, with every man, with every society. It is the language of bliss, the science and art of bliss, the song of Nature.

'Gandharva music is the eternal melody of Nature which is ever-lively in Transcendental Consciousness. From there it reverberates and constructs different levels of creation. Gandharva Veda is the basis of all order and harmony in Nature, therefore it has that most harmonising, most integrating influence.'
