|Dr. E.S.L. Narasimhan, Governor of Andhra Pradesh|
On behalf of all the people of Andhra Pradesh I offer prostrations to His Holiness Sri Swamiji. Many great people are gathered here. Since all names are God’s names, when I say the name, Sri Ganapati Sachchidananda it includes everyone.
Today this Raga Ragini Nada Yogamu book is released. The main objective of Sri Swamiji is to rid our society of all ailments. We are under a lot of stress, pressure and tension. Health is affected. When we listen to Sri Swamiji’s healing music the roga (disease) of society is removed and it becomes Raga (melody). It is the purity of Sri Swamiji’s heart that brings bliss to the music. Listening to beautiful music is healing. Sri Swamiji told me, “What I want is not applause. I want my music to touch their hearts and transform them”.
Listening to good music takes you to a new world. You will realize that it is a stress buster. I have no devotion. I have no knowledge of music. But from listening to Sri Swamiji’s music devotion swells up. This is a great gift to Mankind.
We go after name, fame and material comforts. These do not give permanent peace. Money, name and fame are not enough. A healthy mind is required. Our environment sends out a lot of negative signals. Sri Swamiji’s music cancels these out and puts out positive signals.
People are so busy. They have no time to sit and listen to music. Swamiji says, “No time? Don’t waste your time. Listen during sleep. In the subconscious state, there is no resistance. It is recommended that you turn the CD on and go into sleep mode."
Danam, Yajnam, Tapam, and Japam (charity, rituals, penance, and turning the beads) only give you the first three purusharthas, good conduct, prosperity, and fulfillment of desires. Moksha or liberation is possible only through music and its healing touch.
Sri Swamiji with his pure heart gives happiness away. He transfers his bliss to us. We are greatly benefited by his presence, his music, and his blessings.
Eight crores (80 million) of population of Andhra Pradesh state have received your blessings today. We will ever remain in a state of happiness.
