Bhajans/Singing

 
A Bhajan is a Hindu devotional song, upon which much importance is placed within the Bhakti Yoga tradition. Bhajans are often simple songs in lyrical language expressing emotions of love for the Divine, whether for a single God/Goddess, or any number of divinities.
Traditionally, the music has been Indian classical music, which is based on ragas and tala (rhythmic beat patterns) played on the Veena (Stringed instrument), Sarangi (bowed string instrument), Venu (flute), Mridanga or Tabla (Drums); all traditional Indian instruments.
Bhajans are sung in a group of devotees, with a designated lead singer. Anecdotes, episodes from the lives of Gods, preachings of saints and descriptions of Gods' glories are some of the subject of Bhajans.
