Many people listen to music,this is a fact,Carnatic Music being one among them.
A spiritual aspirant is advised to shun all sense pleasing actions.
Since listening to music that he/she likes,automatically gives him some pleasure(said music is not centered on his/her ishta,or conducive for his spiritual practices)
In this situation,should he shun this music?
Or is listening to any music,Carnatic or otherwise,an impediment in the path of moksha?
(I have added the tags “shiva” and “Krishna “,as they are associated with music in the scriptures,as Muralidhar and Veenadhar respectively; “Gandharvas” are known for music,so I have added them as well)
