Overview for Without a Stumble: A Book on the Spirituality of Music

This book is a research done on the spirituality of Indian classical music. The aim of the research was to study the spirituality of music, its effects on the singer and listener, and the role of music therapy in bringing about the synthesis of cosmic and bioenergy for physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual upliftment. Materials and methods: as a prototype singer the life and music of Padmabhooshan Dr. K.J. Jesudas was taken. His Kachery was analysed by attending to as many of his Kacheries as possible and the Kacheries of other musicians, based in Kerala and Chennai. The prime importance was given to the spiritual experiences and feelings of devotion evoked by the music on the listeners. Observations were made by own experiences and from the experiences of music lovers of different categories, all belonging to Kerala. The first part gives the observations made from the life and work of Jesudas. The second part analyses the spirituality of music, with an innovative scheme for music therapy. The research took more than ten years to complete. The research material is presented in a form which is palatable also to people who are not so research-oriented, and adding a personal touch. The author believes that all music is spiritual, and we are all sparks of the same Naadabrahma and what we think, say, write or do in this Janma is a carry over of the previous Janmavaasanaas. The second part is a detailed analysis of spirituality of music based on Indology and the western concepts of music therapy. It aims at bringing out the science and art of aesthetic experience of the artist and the audience as a meaningful whole, an experience of Advaitha.
