God the Supreme Musician
Offers His Music of Peace.
Man the divine audience
Offers his peace-receptivity.
Sri Chinmoy 1
God is the Supreme Musician. It is He who is playing with us, on us and in us. We cannot separate God from His Music. The universal Consciousness is constantly being played by the Supreme Himself, and is constantly growing into the Supreme Music. God the Creator is the Supreme Musician and God the creation is the supreme Music. The Musician and His Music can never be separated. His creation is being fulfilled. The Music Supreme feels its fulfilment only when it consciously becomes one with the Supreme, the Creator Himself. Through music, God is offering the message of unity in multiplicity and also the message of multiplicity in unity.
Music is God's Dream. God is dreaming at every moment through music. His Dream is called the cosmic Reality, the universal Reality. From the highest point of view, music is not mere words; it is not a concept, not an idea. Music is Reality in its highest form. God is playing the supreme Music in and through us, His chosen instruments. He is playing on us in His own Way. He does not need any human instruments or words to convey His Message, to convey Himself. This He can do in silence without taking any help from the sound-world. God created sound in order to know outwardly what He is inwardly. Inwardly He knows what He is, but if He does not outwardly manifest His inner Divinity then the world cannot accept Him, cannot realise Him. So He created sound just for the sake of His own manifestation. 2
