The power of singing and chanting
in our lives

Music has great power, it can be used to help us concentrate, feel kindness, love and joy or it can be used to bring us into restlessness, confusion, depression and misery. Music has a great potential to resonate with the higher realities of love and joy in our own selves. It has a direct impact on our consciousness.

Music is used everywhere. But we are often not aware of the effect that it has on our mood, thoughts and feelings.

Visitors to Ananda over the years have often said that it’s the music there (Kriyananda’s) that has uplifted them the most, and, in many cases, changed their lives.

“ Among all the arts, music is the most powerful in its effects, because it is vibration itself, and so a manifestation of the AUM vibration of which we’re all made.Swami Kriyananda
