Beautiful Ananda!

The Buddha's friend and first disciple, Ananda, once remarked to his master that,

"Half the holy life, O master, is friendship with the beautiful, association with the beautiful, communion with the beautiful."

To this, the Buddha replied, "Say not so, Ananda, say not so. It is not half the holy life. It is the whole of the holy life."

Enjoying Music!

Music is a black hole - it sucks your soul in!
Music is a bright star - it guides your flying soul!

The difference between classical music and commerical music is SPONTANTIY. Thats why even in carnatic music, when the spontanity is lost, it becomes commercial rather than classical.

Music must be enjoyed in continuous oscillation between mind and heart!!!
Listening (& feeling:-)with the heart & Learning with the mind

But that's synonymous with every activity we do, I guess
