'Music is kirtan yoga. It is worth experiencing'. Once when I presented Ganapati Stuti in desh raag in a function our Prime Minister (then chief minister, Gujarat State) who was present there uttered these words.
We have inherited such an invaluable treasure friends come; let us take benefit from it.
Music is greatly beneficial and people not only enjoy it they even benefit in physical and mental illnesses through music therapy. I and many people associated with Aradhana music academy have been experiencing this for decades now.
Music is a treasure which no thief can steal, no robber can take away, it does not need a bank locker to preserve it, not even cupboards to store it. Once acquired it remains with us as unlocked, everopen treasure. It is a capital which does not need any account books. Why not use this godgiven treasure? Music is helpful in cultivating physical strength, mental capacity, concentration, memory, self confidence, breathing and digestive systems problems and above all it gives spiritual strength.
Here is my humble effort to propogate and popularize classical music through Aaradhana Sangeet Academy. `Sangeet Aaradhana' is a series of books to advance this effort. My efforts have been appreciated by Shri Narendrabhai Modi, scholars, music lovers, music teachers and students and it has been well received by all. I heartily thank you all.
I pray to Goddess Saraswati and God Almighty to extend their blessings and support me in these efforts. Thanking you all once again.
