How do you tune a guitar to 432 Hz?
I tried tuning my guitar to A 432 Hz instead of 440 Hz and shifted the other strings down by the same amount. Is this the correct way to do it? If so, isn't it equivalent to tuning down by a half step or something? It doesn't sound so amazing to me.

you need a guitar tuner
Beyond one's own mind there is no dazzling light to come shining in from outside to wake one up. If one recognizes one's own intrinsic State as pure from the beginning and only temporarily obscured by impurities, and if one maintains the presence of this recognition without becoming distracted, then all the impurities dissolve. This is the essence of the Path-namkhai norbu.

Why is there a legend about the descent of Christ into hell? The Teacher addressed the lower strata of the astral world, saying: �Why, by cherishing earthly thoughts, bind oneself eternally to Earth?� And many revolted in spirit and rose higher.

432 is a slightly different "flavor" of A.

Not a big deal.

Re: How do you tune a guitar to 432 Hz?
From Wiki

By an international treaty signed in 1939, modern pitch is standardized at A-440. However, tuning has varied over time, geographical region, or instrument maker. In seventeenth-century Europe, tunings ranged from about A-374 to A-403, approximately two to three semitones below A-440. Historical examples exist of instruments, tuning forks, or standards ranging from A-309 to A-455.3, a difference of almost six semitones. Although the official standard today is A-440, some orchestral groups and chamber groups prefer to tune a little higher, at A-442 or even A-444. Baroque pitch is usually cited as A-415, which is a semitone lower than modern pitch.

No, that's nowhere near a half-step.
