Welcome to Sai Bhajans Virtual Classroom. If you are wondering
what this means, you will come to know about it in just a
few moments. Swami says that singing the name of the Lord
is the most effective spiritual sadhana in this modern age.
No wonder Bhajans are a rwegular feature (in fact twice a
day) at Prasanthi Nilayam. Swami always stresses the importance
of Bhava, Raaga, and Tala i.e., the feeling, the melody and
the rhythm of the Bhajans. In addition, one also has to pronounce
the words correctly, which, if not done, could make the bhajan
mean altogether something different! So here we present to
you a virtual classroom, if you may say so, of Sai Bhajans
sung at Prasanthi Nilayam. The Sanskrit version and the English
translation are given below. Notice that there are three buttons
on the right hand side of this page. Click the first one titled
'pronunciation' and you will listen to the correct pronunciation
of the words of the bhajan. Next click the button titled '
tune'. You will hear a voice alone, singing the tune of the
bhajan for you. Click the third button entitled 'full version'
and you will listen to a full version of the bhajan with all
the accompaniments as it was sung before Bhagawan! We hope
to present to you one bhajan every issue. Of course, the first
one has to be a Ganesha bhajan
.so lets get started !!!
