Bhajan Guidelines
"Devotional singing (bhajans) is the process of singing that originates in the heart, not from the lips or the tongue. It is the expression of the joyous thrill that wells up from the heart when the Glory of God is remembered. It is the spontaneous manifestation of inner ecstasy. No attention is paid to the blame or praise that others may give. It does not seek the admiration or the appreciation of the listeners." - Sri Sathya Sai Baba

"Have the bhajans on as many days as possible or at least once a week. Have them in a central place where all can come" - Sri Sathya Sai Baba
 
Bhajans are conducted weekly as part of our regular weekly program from 3:00 PM - 6:15 PM on Sundays. During this regular weekly program, Bhajans and closing prayers are usually conducted from 5:00 PM to 6:15 PM (Please click here to check the location and timings of our next weekly program).
