Svara

Svara (Sanskrit) is influence on the bioenergy structures of the human organism performed by means of art.

Through music, vocal, or dance one can induce resonant states in certain chakra of the listeners or viewers, or in certain meridian. In particular, these structures can be developed simply by letting into them the vibrations coming from the artist.

For example, if we listen to a vocalist who concentrates in the anahata, then our anahatas passively attune with his or her anahata and this induces the corresponding emotional state.

There is a book by R. Menon Indian Music: The Magic of the Raga. It describes svara as a mystical phenomenon whose mechanism has not been understood yet.

In fact, the mechanism of svara consists in performer’s work with his o her bioenergy structures. The performer simply moves the concentration of the consciousness into a certain chakra or other energy structure, and if this is done strongly enough then the listeners enter the resonant states.

The same mechanism works in dance when we watch a dancer who possesses svara mastery.

It is quite interesting that through sounds produced by musical instruments one can create resonant states in the chakras and meridians of the listeners. The example of this is tango of Oscar Stroke, “tango king”. He empirically found this effect and created his musical compositions in such a way that all notes in his tangos affected the vishudha, activating it. Due to this, the vishudhas of the listeners get “overflowed”; his music evoked pungent, strong emotional states of ecstasy, joy.

Now, too, there are musicians who use no single note that would cause resonance in the head chakras. To listeners such music is relaxation, freshness, especially to the people of intellectual work. Well-known groups which used svara are Pink Floyd, ABBA, Bonie M.
