Composing Life with Sacred SoundsThe true role of music is in the composition of life itself. It is the art of listening to reality and directing its expression in one’s own experience, for happiness, health, prosperity and fulfilment. The sound of emotion is the raw material of life’s music, and 500 years ago a master of this art, Guru Nanak, found a key to it in the Indian raag (raga) system.

Guru Nanak broke the bond between spiritual reality and religion, teaching people from all backgrounds and simply calling them Sikhs, meaning students. The intention was not to create a religion, and it was only centuries later that the institution of ‘Sikhism’ began.
Raj Academy follows the path of practical wisdom revealed by Guru Nanak, enabling people from any walk of life to attain wellbeing and success through this conscious application of sound, which is called Naad Yoga, Sikh music or Gurmat Sangeet in different contexts. We teach across the world, including the UK, Germany, Spain, France, USA and Canada.
Please explore our website to find out more about the many ways you can take part in our activities. We share this valuable teaching for the benefit of all, with no expectation of existing skill, to allow the composition of as many beautiful lives as possible into the future.
