Inspiring Quote

When we offer music, we emanate countless goddesses playing musical instruments such as flutes, drums, and lutes, and singing melodious songs. The sound of this music fills all three realms - the human realm, the god realm above, and the naga realm below - and induces uncontaminated bliss in all holy beings. By offering music we create the cause to hear only pleasant sounds in the future, especially the sound of Dharma; and never to hear unpleasant sounds such as bad news. It is also the cause for attaining the speech of a Buddha.

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso,
Great Treasury of Merit
