Should You Listen to Meditation Music When You Meditate?

There are the schools of meditation that say you should not meditate to music, that you should only meditate in silence.

But what if there was music that actually deepened your meditation? That simply by listening to the music, you were able to experience far deeper states of meditation than you would without listening to the music.

So first we have to consider what makes good meditation music.

Any meditation music where there is a drum beat should be thrown out. Because any drum beats or rhythms will keep your heart rate high and this keeps you from moving into the very deep states of relaxation where true meditation takes place.

Another thing to consider is what you are actually listening to. If you are listening to music that is purely synthesized, meaning the actual sounds you hear are made from electronically produced sound waves, then such music can give you a headache and not be conducive to meditation.

Another thing to consider is the meditation state of the musician making the music. If the musician has attained a high state of meditation, then their meditative state will be recorded in the music that you hear.

There are many "brain entrainment" audio programs on the market. These are CDs with what are called "binaural beats." Binaural beats are two separate electronically produced sine waves, one played in the left channel and one played in the right channel. These two sine wave drones are slightly different in frequency.

The idea behind binaural beats is that they manipulate your brainwaves into slowing down, thus creating a "meditative state."

Although such programs may do something, my experience is that they are a hindrance to experiencing true states of meditation, not helpful. Plus they are as electronic as you can get.

You would be far better off listening to a chant or a talk either on DVD or Audio CD of an enlightened teacher. By listening to their voice, their own state of enlightenment gets transmitted to you through sound. Although it may not be very musical in nature, meditating to this would deepen your meditation considerably.

But there is meditation music on the market that does induce states of meditation naturally, without electronic sounds and without manipulating your brainwaves. Through special recording equipment, high states of meditation have been recorded and turned into sound. And so when you listen to the music, that same deep blissful state of meditation gets naturally awakened in you.
