Bhajans Competition


Parama Pujya Dr. Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji is a divinely gifted musician and prolific composer. Being a great Vaggeyakaara (singer-composer) of the present times, Sri Swamiji has composed thousands of bhajans and completed extensive research on the revival of the ancient art of Raga Ragini.

With Nama sankeertana styled tunes that are simple and catchy yet musically intricate, Sri Swamiji masterfully crafts bhajans to awaken inner energies in the listener. According to Sri Swamiji,"In the modern age, singing devotional hymns (bhajans) is the easiest way to invoke the inner self. Bhajans sung with one's heart full of love and devotion helps one attain pure eternal bliss."

The selected bhajans are captivating yet accessible for all ages and levels of musical training to learn and sing with devotion.
