In traditional culture of China, since ancient times, there has been a pursuit of static state. Through the exploration of the concept of music, nature and interpersonal harmony in The Book of Rites •The Book of Music, the analysis of the complementary relationship between rites and music is conducted, this paper finds out that under the stable structure of internal and external interaction formed between rites and music, rest is not an absolute rest, but a relative rest that is unified with natural changes and social laws, and the spirit of constant harmony with all things. Nowadays, due to the spirit of suspicion of modern and pluralistic emphasis on motion, the stable structure formed by rites and music has been broken, and it is often challenged.
