Meditation Music Hasn’t Been Here Very Long
The idea of listening to music while meditating is very common. This probably goes back to more then just relaxing. Typically the idea of listening to music would be completely out of the question. I don’t know of any Buddhist lineage that allows any music to accompany them. This is a very modern spin on meditation, but its a very good one. Listening to the right kind of music can really boost your experience and give you a different overall perspective.
