Vishwaguruji on bhajans
Eternal wisdom of Bhajans
Bhajans are the real teachings of Saints. When teachings are present in the bhajans one cannot manipulate these words. Poems and bhajans contain the real teachings and these are the words of the great masters, Guruvakya. Listening to bhajans has great benefit, even if one does not understand them. They have an influence upon our spirituality, on our health and they remove obstacles because of their positive energy, positive vibration. Like when you put on a light in a dark room, the darkness disappears. Similarly, when bhajans are sung, the darkness of karmas disappears. Therefore, in one’s house or flat, it is advisable to play the music of bhajans. What kind of music one plays, that kind of atmosphere will be there. Some music awakens certain feelings and creates more karmas and there is other music, bhajans, which purifies the karma and your inner self feels happy.
When singing bhajans there are different words, indications… these are the teachings of the holy man. The best way to learn is through bhajans, each word contains immense wisdom. To write the bhajan is not easy. One should have that state of mind, that consciousness. To create a bhajan means one must carefully choose beautiful pearls. One must dive very deep to find the pearls. One must dive deep into their own wisdom.
