 Listen to the story told by the reed, 
of being separated.

"Since I was cut from the reedbed, 
I have made this crying sound.

Anyone apart from someone he loves 
understands what I say.
Anyone pulled from a source 
longs to go back.

-- Rumi

 Music is the ultimate peaceful harmony.  Proper behavior is the ultimate way to act.  If you have internal harmony with proper outer behavior, then people will be glad to see you, and there will be no conflicts.

If you would be a cultivated person, you should always behave properly and have music.  Music will make your heart peaceful.  Your heart will be easy, straight, loving, and forgiving, and your life will be rich.  That will bring joy, and joy will bring serenity.

Music speaks from spirit to spirit and in that sense you could call it a true spiritual language.
