 Music-The Nectar of Life
The cosmic existence of sound, its expression in the rhythmic order of the origin and vivid manifestation of Nature, and its spiritual expansion in consciousness are dealt in the Vedas under the knowledge of 
Nada Brahm
.The volume 19 of “Pt. Shriram Sharma Acharya Vangmaya” series presents an in-depth yet perspicuousstudy and analysis of the philosophy and science of 
Sabda Brahm
Nada Brahm
. This book iscompiled from two Chapters of the English translation of the above volume that focus on the genesis,evolution and applications of music.The book provides truly rare knowledge of the emergence of natural musical notes (
) from theeternal impulse of 
and emanation of the
sastriya samgita
. This Indian classical music wasdeveloped and propagated by the
of yore. They had recognized the linkage of music with theemotions and intrinsic nature of the living beings and thereby evolved the methods of its enchantingpractices. They had also discovered special
for the chanting of 
vedik mantras
and the spiritual
of music. The books tells us how we could endeavor reviving this glorious tradition todaywhen the liking of people is mostly entrapped in artificial and fast-beat music and when commercializationand perversion of this universal mode of entertainment is at its peak?Different effects of the
(classical tunes) of music and their applications are elucidated in this book.References from the
literature as well as from the modern scientific research findings are citedwith relevant examples. The applications of music reviewed here range from those in agriculturalproduction and music therapy to social improvement. Reports on some organizations and laboratoriesacross the world that are contributing to enhance the constructive applications of music in future are alsopresented. The readers will find substantial information on the types of 
and the effectsof different compositions of the classical and the modern systems of music.The negative effects of adulterated music are more pernicious than noise pollution as the domain of theirdamaging impact encompasses delicate layers of emotions too along with the body and the mind of theperformers and the listeners. The same is true of the insidious nature of the substandard lyrics. The book provides detailed knowledge and guidance on these aspects with evidential support.Refined music is not just a medium of entertainment or a mode of soothing effects on the mind-bodyensemble. Rather, as author adeptly conveys, it is a source of spiritual enlightenment. The
Nada Brahm
is a super level spiritual experiment that upon success enables ultimate realization of theeternal sound of 
and sublimation of the individual consciousness up to the divine realms. Themanifestation of 
Nada Brahm
in the
of music and its creative expression the
has been an angelic boon for the human society. The book has brought us an opportunity to beblessed by this nectar of life.
