Bhajans & Nagarsankeertan
“Devotional singing (bhajan) is one of the processes by which you can train the mind to expand into eternal values. Teach the mind to revel in the glory and majesty of God; wean it away from petty horizons of pleasure… Devotional singing induces in you a desire for experiencing the truth, to glimpse the beauty that is God, to taste the bliss that is the Self. It encourages man to dive into himself and be genuinely his real Self.” – Baba
To devevlop harmony and true devotion Bhagawan Baba has given us the method of Namasankeerthan or Bhajan. Baba stresses that through Bhajans man gets to overcome the vices of” Kama” and “Krodha”..Desire and Anger– the most devastating enemies of mental peace. Community singing or Bhajans alone can create an opportunity to illuminate the spark of divinity within every heart and also unite people in and around the vicinity through the light of Love .Only internal purity can destroy mountains of sins and bring about real transformation in man, says Baba.
The real intention of Bhajan is to make man cleanse his heart and mind ,which will in turn make him get released from the bonds of Maya, and his innate Divinity helps him to shine in all aspects of Life with happiness and peace.
Nagarsankeertan activities: There is no greater joy than coming together like a flock of birds and taking the melodious name of the Lord in unison. Groups of devotees get together in the wee hours of the morning, every week and make their way across the bylanes near the temple and sing bhajans in unison, spreading the sacred name of the Lord.
Akhand Bhajan and Shivratri Bhajans were celebrated all over the state with thousands of devotees deriving joy by participating in the bhajans.
