Bhajan is deeply rooted in Indian tradition. The word bhajan is derived from bhaj which means ‘to serve’ in Sanskrit. Bhajans gives everyone a chance to talk to the Lord. When you sing Bhajans with a full throated Voice and with Devotion everything and everybody around you gets purified and the Lord’s name gets spread everywhere. Never ever think whenever you sing the Lord’s name with Bhakti that he will not hear you, He will, it is only whether you sing with Bhakti or not. We strongly believe that anything done in mass will have its own effect.
Every Saturday a session is being allotted to inculcate in the minds of the students the culture of ours. Weekly Bhajans create love and devotion to God.
