Just as heart is an important organ is the human body, what is human existence without the brain? The brain and the mind (ability to think) is what sets humans apart from the other life forms. God has equipped only man with the mind, which is present in the brain. Without the mind and awareness human life becomes inert. To keep the brain pure, aware and active, it is important to keep the mind healthy. What can a mindless person achieve in this wood?

It has been observed that a dynamic interaction takes place between life and music. Life has its own pace and rhythm. It has its ups and downs too. It has its achievements and failures. However, as it proceeds it sustains itself drawing upon various external sources among which music is predominant. A close and symbiotic bond exits between life and music. Music is often called sanjeevani which gives freshness and vigour to its recipient who is none else than a good listener. Our saints and sages have looked upon music as a rejuvenating force. In the Bhagwadgita Lord Krishna says I reside in those places where my devotees sing’. Such is the power of music which not only gives us peace of mind but also invigorates our spirits and activates the cells in our brain.

Music for Brain
N A Classical always makes an attempt to present theme-based music. We firmly believe in the therapeutic value of classical music. Music helps one to recoup one’s energy and it provides an effective tonic for the brain. Every human body has a vast reservoir of power and strength. It lies dormant. Good music activates the cells inside the brain and then the entire body is recharged. Music affects the brain in a number of ways. It reaches the brain through auditory channels. When it touches the brain cells, they get stimulated from both the sides and this adds to energy and mental growth.
