Devotional Bajaan  1st Sunday of Month 11.00  2hrs

Where; The Forge Yoga 341 Barker st Castlemaine

 Bajaans; are devotional songs dedicated usually to a deity in Hinduism. They are based on the belief that sounds and words have the ability to transform energy. Bajaans are sung usually in a group setting or satsang. It is a tapas (training) or pursuit on the path to oneness (Samadhi)

The singer; or devotee seeks to open the heart to the feeling initiated by the devotional chant to a diety or saint.  It is a simple and direct way to open ones heart to love, compassion, generosity, and perfecting a relationship with oneself and the other. Paradoxically in bhakti Yoga the goal is to merge self with the other so all is one harmony of light, sound, movement and silence. In this stillness of mind the other is no more.

For whom and why ?
This is an open event and the aim is to meet share some food and sing together. To sing with thanks for the gift of life and the ability to love and feel joy.

Healing; Earth and heart
Chanting and prayer also have the ability to heal the soul, heal the emotional body and the physical and many have found amazing changes within after regular singing. Not only the healing is for oneself but for the myriad of suffering people around the world and planet earth.

Non sectarian non denominational non religious
Singing is a natural human attribute and love also.  We seek to build a gathering of unconditional relationships connected by the love of song, the desire to heal and to be open and free of anything that inhibits our ability to be in touch with the presence of joy. Although it is a tradition of yoga in many faiths and traditions song and dance have played a part in healing, uniting community and realizing the soul.
