Bhajan singing, listening and dancing to the tunes of bhajans is one popular way of kindling the spiritual ecstasies. Music and bhajan singing has been a great tool to connect with the divine, since centuries. Not only in India and Hindu religion, we will find music as a powerful tool to connect with divine in every religion on earth.
Singing the glories of God, singing the different names of God along with good vibrant music with Bhava (feelings towards divine) is surest and easiest way to connect with divine. All the notable saints and Gurus have appreciated and made it a practice among their devotees and disciples for regular singing of bhajans.
