The instrument Veena is as ancient as the Vedas. Once Gautam Buddha asked his disciple, Do you know to play Veena? The disciple said. Yes Master. Buddha came up with the next question asking him whether it is fine if the strings are tied very tight so that it prouces a melodious sound. The disciple said. No Master, the strings should be tied neither too tight nor too loose. Loose strings will make sound the instrument out of tune. So the strings are to be tied in such a way that they are neither too loose nor too tight to sound in perfect tune and melody. Buddha continued to say that we should keep the strings of life neither too loose nor too tight, A harmonious balance is just right.
