Hindu Doctrine: Music is Origin of Life
"Music was linked with the origin of life itself in some traditions, notably in India where sound is regarded in Hindu doctrine as the primordial vibration of divine energy. From this comes the legend of Krishna's flute, which brought the world into existence."
