In the material world the sounds that we hear don’t touch us deeply within the core of our heart. There may be some happiness to be found in material sound vibration, for some people it may be their young child’s sweet words, or the waves lapping on the shore or the birds singing. We may be searching for something by scrolling on our phone or on youtube looking for something to satisfy us. But material sound and material knowledge doesn’t touch our true essence, the spirit soul.
The only sound that can really touch us in the core of our hearts, is Spiritual Sound. In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna said to Arjuna: “My dear friend, mighty-armed Arjuna, listen again to My supreme word, which I shall impart to you for your benefit and which will give you great joy.” BG 10:1
Transcendental sound is undiscriminating, just like the rays of the sun. However, we can choose to close the blinds and close our heart and not hear. We have a choice whether we place ourselves in the warmth of the sun and get the benefit of it or if we hide away. We can take this transcendental sound into our heart and be happy with whatever we gain from it and apply it in our daily life.
