11568music with meditation
- Nov 4, 2003Salut!
I was wondering if anyone plays
music during meditation and why...
There is a local Vipassana meditation
class where the teacher plays music
during the meditation. In the past, it
has generally been asian-influenced
etheric music, but last night it was
Japanese flutes and clapper music
with definite melodies. I don't understand
why someone would add 'ambience' to
a practice that would have found a perfectly
appropriate accompaniment in the already
present sounds of crickets, distant traffic,
rumbly-humming furnace, the high-pitched song
of the lighting, shiftings and stirrings
of our colleagues, one's own breathing, pulses,
and creaking joints.
Anyway, I wonder if there is some aspect of
Vipassana meditation that would lead one to
use music during meditation, some aspect I
don't know about... anyone know?
