Here is a story about Srila Prabhupad’s thoughts on Vedic music…
One day, His Divine Grace was somewhere where a raga was being played on a sitar, and he asked me… “Do you like this music?”
Naively attempting to be Krishna Conscious about it, I answered… “I like Srila Narottam das Thakur’s music better, Srila Prabhupad.”
His Divine Grace said… “No… I mean do you like this music?”
I answered… “Yes, Srila Prabhupad… I’ve always liked classical Indian music.”
He said… “Yes… it is very beautiful… it uplifts the consciousness toward Krishna and the Spiritual World.”
As always, He was able to see the material world in the Light of Krishna Consciousness, and dovetail everything that is possible to dovetail. He would even find things in mundane billboards as He was traveling that He would relate to Krishna and use as a preaching tool.
All Glories to His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupad… we know His Divine Blessings are on this new School of Music, and the wonderful Mayapur Project.
All Glories to His Divine Grace Srila Jayapataka Maharaj for his pure service to Srila Prabhupad, to our Disciplic Succession, and to the entire world.
