Polestar Loves Music

Polestar Music is an integral part of our spiritual community on the Big Island of Hawaii where we offer year-round, hands-on experiences in cooperative living inspired by the universal raja yoga teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda.

We have an energizing life-style of daily meditation, yoga, karma yoga (service projects), sustainable organic gardening, outdoor-adventure opportunities…

AND daily sacred music!

From kirtan, to full choir, to chants and chanting, to mantra, to ensemble, to cherished folk, to campfire favorites…people of all spiritual traditions and cultures are always invited to sing and play along with us.

We want to insert audio files from our PolestarMusic.net page: http://www.polestarmusic.net/music/

Sound Is the Most Powerful Force in the Universe

“Sound or vibration is the most powerful force in the universe. Music is a divine art, to be used not only for pleasure but as a path to God-realization. Vibrations resulting from devotional singing lead to attunement with the Cosmic Vibration or the Word. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1).

“Sankirtans or musical gatherings are an effective form of yoga or spiritual discipline, necessitating intense concentration, absorption in the seed thought and sound. Because man himself is an expression of the Creative Word, sound exercises on him a potent and immediate effect. Great religious music of East and West bestows joy on man because it causes a temporary vibratory awakening of one of his occult spinal centers. In those blissful moments a dim memory comes to him of his divine origin.”
