About Us

Originating in the timeless Vedic tradition, of India, Gandharva Veda is the classical music of the Vedic civilization, cognized thousands of years ago by Vedic sages. Today, under the guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, many of India's renowned musicians have joined in a world-wide revival of this music in its purity by reconnecting it to its source in the Veda and Vedic Literature.

Students learn to play Maharishi Gandharva Veda on bamboo flute or tabla (Indian drums) as taught by resident master musicians from India, while studying the profound correlation between sound, music, and consciousness. Non-credit lessons for adults and children are available; no prior experience is required. Regular concerts bring to life this music which speaks to all audiences in the universal language of harmony, beauty, and peace.

“Gandharva music is universal. It is at home with every land, with every man, with every society. It is the language of bliss, the science and art of bliss, the song of Nature.” – Maharishi
