Choral Singing/Bhajanai

It may be somewhat surprising for the average Westerner to hear about the power within the vibrations of mantras and chanting. The mind is especially affected by the kind of sound energy (Ragams & Thalams) it picks up or tunes into. By chanting and involving in Choral singing, it helps re-direct the minds to the Divine – drowned in an unique culmination of Devotion and music.

The soul by nature already loves Krishna, but that relationship has been covered over by the material energy. The spiritual potency & vibrations produced by the Lyrics, Mantras and Shlokas in soul stirring music can help us to revive that eternal love for the Lord. This is the power of transcendental sound vibrations. We practice this form of choral singing every weekend. Following are the List of activities/Bhajans that are sung as a part of our Weekly Namasankeerthanam – Sampradaya Bhajanai in Solihull/Birmingham 

 We take pride in preserving our heritage and culture that has been passed on over several centuries. We support a Veda Patashala in Chennai (in our own little way)
