Morning Ragas - Hymns to the Beloved
19 Apr 2019, 9:00 AM - 9:45 AM
Bhajan is a Sanskrit word meaning “singing to glorify God." The term covers a wide range of devotional music, from a simple mantra to more complex compositions. They are lyrical and express love for the Divine as well as an intense yearning for oneness with the self.
It is the belief that when participants sing in unison, the bhajan acquires a divine power which produces sacred vibrations that benefit the world, guiding every bhajan session, whether it is held at the family altar or at a place of worship.
Traditional bhajans are accompanied by instruments such as the harmonium and tabla. In keeping with the non-denominational nature of the organisation, bhajans can be sung in different languages and in the musical traditions of the various faiths.
This presentation by devotees from Sathya Sai Centres features compositions that are traditional and inter-religious. The audience is encouraged to join in the chorus.
“Let your whole life be a spiritual song. Believe that God (the Divine) is everywhere at all times, and derive strength, comfort, and joy by singing His glory in His presence.” Sathya Sai Baba
