Contemplating, uttering or writing the names of the Lord serves to purify one's mind, speech and action. Chanting the names of the Lord is one of the means of God-realisation.
Bhajans can be sung by an individual either quietly in one's heart or loudly for all to hear. But congregational singing or Sankeertan is the best and most effective way of reciting Bhajans. Sankeertan aims at the well-being of the whole Universe.
Devotional singing is not just a mechanical performance. Bhaava (feeling), Raaga (melody), and Thaala (rhythm) are the essentials for proper singing of Bhajans.The devotee should immerse himself or herself in the singing, combining one's voice, tune, feeling, and rhythm to the appropriate beat of the song.The sacred words of the song should be an outpouring of love and devotion towards God.
Bhanot's Collection of Bhajans is a constantly expanding collection of popular bhajans and prayers. I hope that you will find this collection interesting and useful.
If you have any comments, suggestions, corrections, or other popular bhajans that you would like included in this page, please do not hesitate to send me an e-mail.
