The sound of silence

Music can relax the mind, energize the body, and help people manage pain better. Multiple studies have shown how music has reduced stress and increased the release of happy hormones. IIM Indore took the initiative to give their faculty members and students a better way of meditating or relaxing, surrounded by nature’s sound and beauty.

Sound and music help keep our minds at peace and relieve stress. Our spiritual journey is dependent on three factors – courage, the ability to self-reflect, and being content.

Spread over an area of 12,000 sq ft, the sound garden is covered with around 5000 plants that include different types of roses, night queen and jasmine and natural greenery. As per the reports, the garden is designed in a way that it amplifies the sound of nature, adding to this, special wind chimes, provided by the SVARAM Institute of Musical Instruments and Research Centre Auroville are also equipped in the garden, making it an ideal place for you to find your inner self.
