What is it we should look for in music?
How to judge the quality of a piece of music?
How to develop good taste (for music)?
What do you think of the light music (cinema, jazz, etc.) which our children like very much?
The role of music lies in helping the consciousness to uplift itself towards the spiritual heights. All that lowers the consciousness, encourages desires and excites the passions, runs counter to the true goal of music and ought to be avoided.
It is not a question of name but of inspiration—and the spiritual consciousness alone can be the judge there.
