Amma says "to gain concentration in this age of materialism, bhajan is easier than meditation. By loud singing, other distracting sounds will be overcome and concentration will be achieved. Bhajan, concentration and meditation, this is the progression. In fact, constant remembrance of God is meditation. Children, bhajan sung with one-pointedness will benefit the singer, the listener and also Mother Nature. Such songs will awaken the listeners minds in due course.

If bhajan is sung without concentration, it is a waste of energy. Bhajan is a spiritual discipline aimed at concentrating the mind on one's Beloved Deity. Through that one-pointedness, one can merge in the Divine Being and experience the Bliss of one's True Self. It does not matter whether one believes in Krishna or Christ, Mother Kali or Mother Mary; a formless God or even a flame, a mountain or an ideal such as world peace can be meditated upon while singing. By letting the mind expand in the sound of the divine chanting, each one can enjoy the peace born of one's inherent divinity."

If you live in the London area and would like to host one of the monthly Sahasranama chantings, preceded by bhajan practice, please contact Yamunah to arrange.

Call to Host Satsangs in London Area There are plans to hold monthly house satsangs in and around London, in addition to the regular monthly satsangs at East Ham, Villa Devi and Sunningdale. These will be held in devpotees' houses and will typically last about three hours and comprise of group chanting of Amma's 108 names, Sri Lalitha Sahasranama archana and Mahishasura mardini stotram, followed by bhajans and meditation.

Everyone is welcome and people to pray for will be listed on the London Bhajans Eweekly. To subscribe to this please contact Kuldeep ammaskuldeep@gmail.com.
