The sheer beauty of sacred and spiritual music means that it has the unique ability to cross many borders, religions and cultures and it can speak louder than a thousand words. It is one of the most powerful human creations of expression and one which can touch the hearts of listeners across the globe, regardless of their circumstances.
So much of our lives today revolve around conflict, on an individual and international level. This is why, Sacred Music Radio, has been created to promote interfaith harmony and to help spread the messages of individual and global peace.
True spirituality surpasses all earthly religions and by transcending the limits placed by religion and culture, we can work to achieving true interfaith harmony and understanding. Spiritual music, including all sacred music, is so well positioned to help achieve this because it is not bound by any particular language, religious denomination or by societal influences. It simply speaks to the hearts and minds of the listeners and enables them to connect with each other at a higher spiritual level than any conversation could hope to achieve.
Music has also been proven to have a calming influence on the mind, body and soul and its links to improved emotional and physical wellbeing cannot be ignored. In fact, music has been used for hundreds of years to treat illness and also restore harmony to the mind and body.
Spiritual and relaxation music has been proven to help slow pulse and heart rate, lower blood pressure and decrease stress hormones. It can also provide a well-needed distraction to help calm the mind in times of stress, anger or tension and enables listeners to take a step back from the world around them, refocus, rebalance and come back feeling revived and refreshed.
The concept of Interfaith Harmony isn’t just wishful thinking either and now has pride of place on the global agenda. In fact, on 20th October 2010, the UN general assembly passed a resolution declaring the first full week of each February as ‘World Interfaith Harmony Week’.
At Sacred Music Radio, our aim is to ensure that we promote interfaith harmony not simply for one week each year, but 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our selection of spiritual and relaxation music has been chosen specifically to help connect people from all walks of life, all religions and all experiences through one simple thing, a pure appreciation of beautiful, timeless and expressive sacred music.
