    There is something -- well, everything, really -- about that spiritual experience that is ineffable and eternally elusive. It's no wonder, then, that an integral part of virtually all major world faith traditions is music. It is the language of the soul, after all. What can't be said in words can certainly be expressed in melody and felt in rhythm.

    HuffPost Religion has compiled here a series of photos and videos of timeless musical devotion. While this collection is woefully incomplete, it is intended to be an introduction to the world's major sacred music traditions, as well as a peek at some of the modern permutations of that spiritual practice. In the future, we hope to delve more deeply into the songs and sounds of specific faiths. But for now, enter the melody and see what is revealed.


    When you click on this link you will be taken to a Slideshow of photos. Click on each photo and you will be taken to a video of a performance. :)

    At least one hour of pure enjoyment at this link.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
