Sacred Music

 

What makes us feel drawn to music is that our whole being is music; our mind and our body, the nature in which we live, the nature that has made us, all that is beneath and around us… it is all music.”

– Sufi mystic Hazrat Inayat Khan –

We also want to bring awareness to the unifying power of music in a world that is often divided by cultural or religious intolerance. Our friends in the UK have put together a new Sacred Music Radio program which is an internet radio station specifically designed to showcase sacred music from around the world. Please tune in and enjoy!


Ancient Mother

Music is
A cup holding the wine of silence…
The inexpressible whisper of our soul’s secrets….
A sweet nectar and outburst of ecstasy and delight….
The sacred medicine that heals and uplifts us from earthly cares…
Music is
A universal language for humanity, a grace and blessing from the angels…
The tuning of our hearts to the higher frequencies of love, harmony and beauty….
An invitation for the Beloved to enter our hearts unhesitatingly….
Prayer, devotion and glorification as spiritual food for our soul’s deepest hunger….
Music is
A dance we can share
A bridge you and I can walk across together
Between this imperfect world of form
And the formless world of invisible grace….
Let us meet where
Music is.
