    ravi ji has just posted this most beautifull verse from the Srimad Bhagavatam (11.14.24) ......

    One whose throat is choked by emotions at the height of devotional ecstasy; one who sheds tears of bliss because the heart has become absorbed in bliss; one who bursts out laughing in the intoxication of supreme devotion; one who, giving up all false modesty, sings loudly
    and dances -- such a person purifies the whole world.

    .......which just makes me think it is time for a kirtan party , .....

    please join in ...post your favorite most joyfull bhajans for everyone to enjoy , let us all share wonderfull kirtan together and purify the ''whole world''......

    Vanakkam Ratikala,

    What a wonderful thread! Kirtan is on of my favorite ways of connected with the Lord (puja is the other). Here are couple of my favorites.

    This first one has a special place in my heart as it was the first time I was really introduced to Krishna and it moved me so much!

    Krishna Das - All One ( Hare Krishna ) Full Version - YouTube

    And this one isn't quite kirtan but it is so blissful- Narayana Kavacham

    Sri Narayana Kavacham - UmaMohan- - YouTube

    This one has beautiful scenes :)

    Namaste,

    Very nice to see (and hear) such spirit of celebration; I hope it will not spoil the mood if I add some bhajans showing different languages, different styles, some many miles
    apart, but all praising Devi..

    Here is a sweet poem of a great devotee of the Lord which I would like to share here. :namaste



    When will I hear

    the auspicious names of Kanna

    sounding in my ears?

    And upon hearing them

    when will my hairs stand on end

    And I will be immersed in tears?



    Being immersed in tears, when will I become pure?

    And in that state of absolute purity,

    When will I sing His names

    spontaneously?



    And as I sing in ecstasy,

    When will I forget the earth and the sky?

    And forgetting everything

    when will I dance

    in utter devotion?

    And as I dance,

    will my steps

    sweep the stains

    from the stage of the world?




    In that playful dance

    in which I sweep all stains away,

    I will cry out loud

    And through that cry,

    Will my purity be sent

    in the eight directions?



    And when the play has been enacted

    When will I fall at last

    into my Mother's lap?

    And lying on my Mother's lap

    when will I sleep blissfully?



    As I sleep

    when will I dream

    of the beautiful form of Sri Krishna

    Who dwells within my heart ?

    And as I wake up

    when will I see Sri Krishna,

    The enchanter of the world?

    Namaste,

    @ratikala: Unfortunately, I do not speak Malayalam, but reading this page should
    be helpful.

    @Ravi500: Very nice poem!

    I'm Saivite, but I love some of the Vaishnava bhajans to Krishna, especially some of the newer ones...

    Ever since Lagaan this by the delightful Lata Mangeshkar

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vv4UV9O5drw

    And this:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chHkGBIdnoU

    I suppose my absolute favourite Bhajan of all time is the traditional Hara Hara Amarnathe Gange, Kashi Vishwanath Gange. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ue0lrdlzqM

    I suppose for me, it isn't so much the words (because for the most part Hindi Bhajans I don't understand fully, and sanskrit bhajans I use in my own practice are chanted mantras) but it's the energy of a song that gets me going. The American musician Krishna Das, devotee of Guru Neem Karoli Baba really has a great sense of energy, even in his recordings. There are two particular favorites:

    A particularly energetic version of the Hare Krishna MahaMantra:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoSQKiowwiQ

    And a rendition of Aum Namah Shivaya which is so powerful to listen to, the way he builds the energy up! Gets me going everytime. It became a very important part of my practice this particular rendition.

    Oh gosh that annoys me because they carelessly mix up verses of the achyutAShTakam (I have OCD, lol); anyway, isn't it by an Art of Living singer?
    There is absolutely no bhakti in that song; I just see kAm and lAlach (perhaps if you understood all of the lyrics you would know what I'm talking about, :))..

    praNAm,
    Put that stuff after v= in (youtube)....(/youtube) tags (except with brackets, i.e. [] rather than parentheses).
    So for your video, you would write it like "[youtube]IajM-tLxPFc[/youtube]"
