This science has its roots in the Vedas and has been revealed to Nada Yogi Seers and Rishis who used it to reach God. The vehicle for its transmission is Indian Classical Music in the form of Mantras, Shlokas, Chants, Kirtan, Bhajans, Ragas and Talas.
During the 800 years of foreign domination the science almost disappeared and music was used only for entertainment. A few initiates who used this mystic science for God Realization, kept it secret and taught it only to their disciples. Swami Nadabrahmananda was such a master and he in turn transmitted this knowledge to Yogi Hari who studied with him for 14 years.
Because this knowledge flowed through the mind of pure beings in the intuitive state, it is perfect and is not in a state of experimentation or evolution. The path is clearly outlined by the Perfected Masters and all we have to do is follow the disciplines and experience the transformation. Not any kind of music that is flowing from diseased and confused minds can be called Nada Yoga. Only the music that flows from the purified mind of a Yogi and is used to lift one out of anxiety, restlessness and depression to a state of peace and Divine Bliss, is called Nada Yoga.
Yogi Hari’s style of teaching is called “Sampoorna Yoga” which harmonizes all aspects of the human personality. Nada Yoga is an integral part of this teaching.
