Abstract: The study of Guqin has become an important topic in Asian music for the past 10 years. In this article, the connection of music, religion and human nature is examined through this ancient instrument. There are three underlying reasons why the author chooses Guqin as a medium for investigation. First, from a musical perspective, Guqin is the earliest notation written instrument in human history. Second, from a religious perspective, Guqin is the only official religious instrument recognised by Confucius in ancient China. Third, Guqin music, Flowing Water, had been selected (as one of the 27 pieces of world famous music) and carried by the American spacecrafts on August 20 in 1977 to space- as greetings and connection to humankind in other planets. Therefore, this study serves to discuss the power of music - as an ambassador of human nature
