Pythagorean Tuning

Ancient Indian and Tibetan texts refer to chakras in the human body. Seven main chakras are located along a central, vertical axis at the front of the human body. Each chakra has its own unique function in the body and its own specific soundwave length.

Each chakra acts as an antenna to connect us with what is going on in our environment. They are receivers for vibrational energy, which in turn provides information to help us to know ourselves and realize our inherent potential. Each chakra responds to a different note. Striking the bars, either individually or in harmonies, provides an opportunity to work directly on individual healing, centering, and meditation.

Each note produced by these Chakra Chimes is based on precise mathematical proportions known as Pythagorean tuning. Pythagoras (569 B.C.) was a brilliant Greek philosopher and mathematician. Pythagoras taught his students that focusing on pure mathematically precise tones would calm and illuminate the mind. With discipline, true happiness could be experienced.

Pythagoras taught that music should never be approached as a form of entertainment. Rather, he recognized that music was an expression of harmony, the divine principle that brings order to chaos and discord. Pythagoras described music and nature in terms of arithmetical relationships.
