Okay, Individual. Here is some classical music which has absolutely no religious overtones.

Chopin wrote a whole series of "nocturnes" for piano. They are basically all slow melodic pieces. These pieces are from the romantic period, so they can be quite passionate at times, but they never get too loud. If you like this one, check out his others.


Also, try listening to some classical guitar. Any recording by John Williams (the guitarist) is excellent.

Ahhhhh, yesssss... I might slow down both pieces a bit more, though.

Both are slow enough to be relaxing, but slower would be better.

I tinkered with that guitar piece of John Williams playing La Catedral by Agustin Barrios, to better suit my own ear. Let me know what you think of my changes:

On that link, there's no need to download anything. If you have Windows Media Player and hit the play button, it will stream.

Slightly off-topic I know, but I was wondering - If moderate alcohol consumption for the purpose of relaxation is a no-no in Theravada (as was recently expressed here by a number of people), then why does no-one bat an eyelid at music consumption for relaxation?

Here's another song which is based on a Buddhist mantra.

Too many individual songs relax me, but if I have the time, here is the list of albums that I will listen to for relaxation:

Pink Floyd - The Wall
NIN - The Fragile
Meatloaf - Bat out of Hell
Miles - Birth of the Cool
Coldplay - Any of them (I write my best papers listening to Coldplay)
David Bowie - Hours
Germinal - Kaos v rdeči
Gorillaz - Demon Days
But if this neutral feeling that has arisen is conditioned by the body which is impermanent, compounded and dependently arisen, how could such a neutral feeling be permanent? - SN 36.7
