Songs and Chants in Praise of the Many Names of God

"God is one, but the wise call God by many names." — The Vedas

Shivabalayogi drummingBhajans are devotional songs in praise of the many divine aspects of God.  In Sanskrit, the root bhaj has various meanings including seeking, worship, and prayer, and the word is also related to bhakti, devotion.  More in North India than the South, call-and-response bhajans are referred to as kirtan.

Shivabalayogi’s public programs consisted of an hour of meditation followed by an hour of bhajans.  During the bhajans, Shri Swamiji gives various spiritual experiences.  He would explain that the energies evoked through the devotion and the bhajans is the same as that from meditation.

Here are links to bhajans and sacred chants, their text and translations, and music files available for download without charge.
