An effect of Raga Therapy on our human body
Author(s): Joyanta Sarkar, Utpal Biswas
Abstract: Now a days, music assumes a vital part in each human life. Because of overwhelming work weight, people listen music to relax. Music increases the metabolic activities within the human body. It accelerates the respiration, influences the internal secretion, improves the muscular activities and as such affects the "Central Nervous System” and Circulatory System of the listener and the performer. A Raga is the sequence of selected notes (swaras) that lend appropriate ‘mood’ or emotion in a selective combination. It’s a yoga system through the medium of sonorous sounds. Depending on its nature, a raga could induce or intensify joy or sorrow, violence or peace, and it is this quality which forms the basis for musical application.
