Bhajan Sandhya

Chinmaya Mission Yamunotri offers Bhajan Sandhya evening once a month. Please contact Smt. Brunda Kamath ji for further reference.

About Bhajan Sandhya

"nāhaṁ tiṣṭhāmi vaikuṇṭhe yogināṁ hṛdayeṣu vā tatra tiṣṭhāmi nārada yatra gāyanti mad-bhaktāḥ"

“I do not reside in Vaikuntha, nor do I reside within the hearts of the yogis, but I reside in that place where My pure devotees sing My holy name and discuss My form, pastimes and qualities” - Srimad Bhagavatam 4.30.35

Benefits Of Bhajan Sandhya

Bhajans are the greatest and easiest forms of Worship. Bhajans are songs sung to show our gratitude and love for God. Singing or listening to devotional songs removes all negativity in one’s mind and fills one’s heart with joy, peace and contentment. It elevates one’s mood and creates inner equilibrium. When a bhajan is sung, it cleanses the atmosphere and fills the place with positive energy.

Once a month, a devotee family hosts Bhajan Sandhya, an evening filled with bhajans and Kirtans sung together with family, friends and other devotees. This could be to commemorate a special milestone in the family or simply to create divine positive vibrations in the home.

If you would like to host a Bhajan Sandhya at your home, please contact our coordinator at (847)-942-2017 or
