Spiritualise The Bhajans With Heart Felt Devotion
Puttaparthi, Sai Kulwanth Hall (Shiva Rathri )
The bhajans this time were done in a ritualistic fashion. Greater attention was paid to raga, tala, laya and shruti (the melody, the beat, the rhythm and the tone). All these are vyavahaarika (conventional qualities). To elevate the bhajans to a spiritual level what are required are true feeling and ecstasy of devotion. The songs should flow nor from the lips but from the heart. When the songs come out of the heart they will be blissful for the ears.
