Maharishi Gandharvans

It uses sound, melody, and rhythm to restore balance and harmony in mind, body, behaviour, and environment. These beautiful melodies have been recorded for you by the finest Gandharva Veda musicians in India. Each set of recordings contains melodies appropriate to different times of the day.

Thousands of years ago in India, the land of the Veda, Rishis or seers capable of cognizing the rhythms and melodies of nature sang and played these beautiful melodies at the appropriate times of the day and night to bring peace and harmony to their land and perfect health to all their people. However, over time the completeness of knowledge and purpose of this music was lost.

Now, under the guidance of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, many of India's most renowned musicians have joined in a world-wide revival of this eternal music of nature, enlivening its power to create balance in the individual and the environment. By playing Maharishi Gandharva Veda music you can join in the creation of a new atmosphere of peace, harmony, and joy for yourself, your family, and the world. Gandharva Veda music is the eternal music of nature - the rhythms and melodies of nature expressed as music.

Devabrata Chaudhuri

If you could hear the changing frequencies present at the first awakening of the dawn, in the dynamics of midday, or in the deep silence of midnight, you would be hearing the frequencies of Gandharva Veda music. These sublime melodies neutralize stress and disharmony in the environment, and gently restore biological rhythms by attuning the physiology to the cycles of nature that underlie each hour of the day and each season of the year.

The knowledge of when to play each melody is based on three-hour periods called Praharas which correspond to the changing frequencies of nature throughout the day. Maharishi Gandharva Veda provides music to create balance in the environment throughout the eight Praharas of the day - Sunrise, Morning, Midday, Afternoon, Sunset, Evening, Midnight and Late Night.
In addition to this there are certain ragas which can be played at any time of the day or night.
