Colours, radiation, vibrations etc are all part of astrology. Two news reports are given below on how music heals and on the recognition for astrology to recommend cures for heart ailment.
Sound vibrations are the basis of Vedic chants and homas. When Narada visited Vyasa in the Himalayas (this narration is in Mahabharatha), he found the sage and his disciples engrossed in mediation in a very calm environs with no sound heard anywhere.
Narada did not approve of this 'dead' silence and advised Vyasa to immediately start vedic chantings aloud. He said the chantings must vibrate the icy mountains. The chantings alone produce the necessary atmosphere conducive for prosperity and peace of the world. Though Vyasa was withdrawn form the worldly life, he was not entitled to shun vedic chantings. He must see to it that the chantings were vibrating the atmosphere all the time.
That is the purpose of Vedas – the life enricher.
The acoustics of Vedas are further improvised in Music.
The seven notes of music are further related to the planets signified by specific vibrations of their own. And every planet also signifies a specific colour. The all-in-one nature can be explained as follows:-
1 – 'ma' (madhyam) -Moon – white or yellowish tint.
2- 'ga' (gandharam) - Sun - Golden colour
3- 'ri' (rishabham) - Mars - red
4- 'sa' (shadjam) - Mercury - green
5- 'ni' (nishadham) - Venus - multi colour
6- 'dha' (dhaivatam) - Jupiter - Yellow.
7- 'pa' (panchamam) - Saturn – blue
