Auroville’s division called SVARAM, explores all possible sound materials to discover and create new means and approaches of making music, and opening the “Magic of Music” to everyone. One of the more unique products they have created is a musical bed called the Nidhranantar. It consists of 50 strings attached to the bottom, and they will be played even when the user is lying down with their eyes closed. The musical notes that the bed produces relax the muscles and calm the mind. It was mainly produced as a sound-healing device, and is a nice example of taking time to let something get to you. Being able to rest and relax, taking your time as the music flows in and out of you.  This process has become a very popular de-stresser, and embraces momentary healing.
