In this video, Prasant talks about the great Master Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi and how his teachings relate to Music. He talks about why many have difficulty following the instructions of self inquiry and “who am i” and how utilizing music can help you easily transcend these challenges and confusions created by the mind.
Music arises from the depths of Source and easily goes beyond any and all thought forms. It delivers you into your natural home in Silence and Truth. Prasant describes briefly how the sound of music Itself can trigger a spontaneous inquiry into your nature and allow for immediate relief from and transcendence of the mind. This results in the deep rest of the Self.
