Adhyatma or spirituality is closely related to MUSIC.... the music that does not produce momentary excitement but has the power of giving everlasting pleasure or chirasthayee anand. The naad , swara and shruti or the different vibrations produced have the power to take a person to that cosmic journey.

To explain a little more....

'Dhrupad' is sung with the use of
naad swara which is produced from the very core or naabhi and the singer totally is immersed in the pleasure of the effects of the music. Music teaches a person the discipline which is a requisite towards the path of spirituality and attaining divinity. A singer when sings a particular raga , automatically is bound in certain limits of swaras and if he does not respect that , he or anyone listening to him instead of getting the pleasure or anand , instead of getting immersed in the music , is distracted and there is a feeling of dissatisfaction and frustration. Similarly,a  khayal sung with perfection with the use of proper aalap and taan
teaches the singer to remain in some boundaries. 

We all know the story of Tansen. When he sang
Raga Deepak, a tremendous amount of heat was produced in his body which was cooled by his daughter by singing Raga Malhaar.  Even today, these ragas have the capabilty to do miracles but they have to be sung with devotion and in their original swaroop or form. The original form of these ragas have changed over the years and the vibrations produced by those typical combination of swaras are not the same anymore. But music definitely remains a medium to reach THAT goal or attain God...rather to become one with GOD
