    Hello everybody! My post is about music that you listen during the day or while meditating. Do you listen to music at all?

    Firstly, I was looking for the approval of music itself for Baha'i followers. And here is what I found:

    All these feelings can be caused by voice and music, for through the nerves it moves and stirs the spirit. Even over animals, music has an effect. For example: When they wish to take a camel over a desert road, they attach to him some bells, or they play upon a flute, and this sound prevents him from realizing the fatigue of the journey; his nerves are affected, but he does not have an increase of thought, he feels nothing but physical sensation.
    (‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Music, pp. 79-81)


    So, I think, it is not forbidden to listen to the music which lifts human's spirit. What do you guys think?

    I have been looking for a music source or artists which songs won't harm my soul. And I found it very difficult to separate the right ones from the wrong ones. I need help:p

    So far I have found the online Faith Radio devoted to Baha'i Faith. They play calming music 24/7 and also they have Inspirational quotes and Faith talks. Did you know that there is a radio channel devoted totally to Baha'i Faith? It was a surprise for me.

    Anyway, I appreciate any help regarding this matter. Thank you all in advance :)
