Shiva Sai Mandir Music Bhajans Course

A Self-Paced Online Program

This course is designed for you to learn and practice singing bhajans. Bhajan singing is an art. In this course you will learn the art of singing bhajans in the style of Shiva Sai Mandir Music of Sri Kaleshwar of Penukonda, India. It is music with its own style, a style taught by Sri Kaleshwar based on his knowledge of the ancient Indian traditions. If you decide you want to learn it, you have to start digging and grinding. It will not reveal itself to you by passing through. There is much more to the art of bhajans than what it looks like on the first, second, and third look.

“You can check any ashram, any place, you won’t find these types of rhythms anywhere. This is soft, melodious and easy, so that any person can catch on to it. They can get it. They will get it.” - Sri Kaleshwar

When you sing a bhajan you begin to know who you are. Bhajan singing, at its core, connects you to the energy of God and allows you to recognize that we are all one. To merge with the cosmic energy, to merge with God, is our soul’s final ultimate goal. Singing bhajans is a pathway towards reaching that goal.

About this Course:

To sing bhajans is really something very special! It is much more than to just sing a song. We are singing to cosmic forms of energy and learning how to become a channel. We are experiencing enlightenment stages and we are highly concentrated at the same time. We are creators of a relationship between the form of God we sing to and all the listeners. We are transmitting divine energy, but at the same time no ego should diminish the pure expression of our soul. We sing for others, not for ourselves. To sing bhajans is a mechanism that we can learn to use consciously for the benefit of all.

What Is Required To Join This Course?

You just need an open heart for bhajans and music. We especially also want to open up the beauty of singing bhajans to people who don't believe in their ability to sing. Singing bhajans is a true transforming sadhana and will heal a lot of negative tendencies. You don't need to be a musician with formal musical skills.

This course addresses two different groups of people: beginners and more experienced bhajan practitioners. If you are a beginner, you can learn about the fascinating world of singing bhajans and the amazing opportunities that lie just in front of you! If you have some experience already as a bhajan singer, then you will be able to go deeper into the subject, learning the mechanisms of bhajan singing, and how to use bhajans as a powerful tool to heal yourself and others.

About Shiva Sai Mandir Music

Sri Kaleshwar (b 1973 - d 2012) was a modern day saint and master in researching and implementing the ancient Indian healing and enlightenment knowledge recorded in ancient palm leaf books. Part of his mission was to make this incredible information available to people all over the world, resulting in freedom from illusions, healing of sickness, the development of faith and living in true happiness. He dedicated his life to see that this deep understanding reaches the Western world today.

One very important aspect of Sri Kaleshwar's teachings is to create musicians who are able to open peoples hearts and awaken the self-healing capacity of their souls. Sri Kaleshwar trained Sabeenamayi and her husband (the late) Gustav Vigneshwara to bring this message out through a unique and powerful form of singing bhajans Sri Kaleshwar called Shiva Sai Mandir Music.

"For almost 20 years I have been singing Bhajans -Indian love songs to God. They call on and praise the different aspects of God and create a special charm and sweetness. I discovered that singing bhajans can unfold huge spiritual power. We use this power in order to let inner healing unfold for the individual and to create happiness, joy and bliss. I compose and play according to a vedic healing technique, called Sangitha Prakshalana. This music opens the heart. It dissolves blocks in our emotional body, releasing and revitalizing our physical body, mind and soul. I invite you to join and sing along!"
