Let harmony guide you

Harmony, a term often used in music to represent the combination of simultaneously sounded musical notes to produce chords and chord progressions having a pleasing effect, simply refers to an agreement or concord between two entities.

A good number of cultures and religions teach about the importance of living a harmonious life.

According to Dr. Ravindra Kumar;

“Harmony is the ambrosia [Sanjivini] of life with co-operation, co-ordination and consent being its foremost features in the absence of which life cannot go on appropriately and smoothly and, therefore, there can be no success in life. It is for this reason that harmony, through the ages, has been considered vital to life, and continuous efforts have been made towards its realization and development in all walks of life.”
