What is Bhajan ?
A Bhajan is any type of Indian devotional song. It
has no fixed form: it may be as simple as a mantra or
kirtan or as sophisticated as the dhrupad or kriti with
music based on classical ragas and talas. It is normally
lyrical, expressing love for the Divine. The name, a
cognate of bhakti, meaning religious devotion, suggests
its importance to the bhakti movement that spread from
the south of India throughout the entire subcontinent
in the Moghul era.
bhajan - singing of chants or hymns used to worship
and remember the Divine. In the Sant Mat tradition,
this term is used to refer to the practice used to allow
the spirit egress to the inner current of sound of the
Nada in the Second Transcendental path.
