The Sound of Music to relieve suffering
“Music is the mediator between the spiritual and sensual life” – Beethoven
On World Music Day, 21 June 2017, Pallium India conducted a program for the residents of our inpatient centre – live music to ease suffering.
We are grateful to Raji Vishwanathan, who volunteered to perform for our patients and their families. The keerthanam she rendered enthralled her audience. She was met with requests for encore, while others sang light music and keerthanams. My colleague Reshma and I joined them. Reshma, though not a trained singer, delighted us with her rendering of a beautiful keerthanam. Everyone smiled and swayed to the music, forgetting their troubles for a while. What a wonderful way to relieve pain and suffering!
Thank you Raji Vishwanathan, for taking the initiative. We look forward to starting more such activities.
