Music has been man’s companion from time immemorial. It has the capability to fill and move the heart of every being. Puranic stories reveal glimpses of even non-living things melting to the musical tunes. The very creation began with the “pranava” – the sound of OM.

Music to human ears is heavenly. And if it's purely devotional, it's truly divine. Such a genre of music is the Bhajan. Melodious music can move the Lord and all the participants. The history of Bharat is filled with many devotees of the Lord squeezing their hearts and pouring their love for their god in form of Bhajans. These Bhajans had a tremendous impact on the lives of people, influencing one and all right from the prince to the pauper. Thyagaraja, Meera, Tulsidas and Surdas are only a few popular devotees who took to the path of Bhajans to satisfy their Lord.

Bhajans are based on the hymns found in Sama Veda, the fourth Veda in the Hindu scriptures. They are distinguished by their easy lilting flow, the colloquial renderings and the profound appeal to the mass. These are sung in a group comprising devotees, with a lead singer. The fixed tunes, repetition of words and phrases lend a kind of tonal mesmerism. Anecdotes, episodes from the lives of Gods, preaching of saints, description of God's glories have been the subject of Bhajans. Another form of the bhajan is the keertan or songs in the Haridas tradition.

Baba has time and again declared that the namasmarana is the panacea for the perils of the current time filled with discordant and disturbing sounds. Chanting the name of the Lord purifies the environment beginning with cleaning one’s own heart. God is extolled as “Ganapriya”- lover of music. When singing with fervour, the music that pleases the lord is relished in the mind of the participants. This helps in driving out the bad thoughts from the mind. The greatness of chanting Lord’s name was advocated very much by Aadi Sankaracharya, who had declared that there was only one Absolute without a second. Even he had to seek to dualism because he found that apart from chanting the Lord’s name there was no easy way to experience the Divine. Out of this conviction was born the famous devotional song “Bhajagovindam”
