Deepen Your Bhajan Sadhana

With Amma’s blessings, we hope to send you some of the sweetness of Amma’s Love and Wisdom.

Amma’s bhajans are a treasure trove of spiritual wisdom. They not only help the devotee develop Bhakti or longing for God, but also encapsulate the scriptural teachings on God, devotion, the nature of the world, life and liberation. To sing a bhajan from the heart is to pray, to commune, to invoke the divine. Amma says when you sing a bhajan knowing the meaning of each word, you can sing with enjoyment. Your spiritual practice is incredibly enhanced. Inspired by Amma’s ethereal singing, this course attempts to help you understand the infinite beauty and significance of Amma’s Malayalam bhajans.

"Children, sing from the depth of your hearts. Let your heart melt in prayer. The joy of singing the Lord’s name is unique. Leave aside all shyness and open your heart to God."

- Amma

What Amritabhaasha Students Are Saying

Connecting with Amma

Amritabhaasha: Learn Bhajan Lyrics

My favorite part was the teacher's energy. Whatever she would teach I would join, because she makes it interesting and sweet. Through everything she connects us with Amma, and I am more than grateful for that. Big thanks to all the crew and the most to the great teacher.

Love and Grace

Amritabhaasha: Learn Bhajan Lyrics

Thank you for letting Amma work through you all in such a wonderful way. It all feels very personal, and I would have never thought this possible with online lessons. Amma is really with us and showering Her Love and Grace upon us during the whole of the course.

Understanding on a New Level

Amritabhaasha: Learn Bhajan Lyrics

It was very interesting to hear more deeply about the different deities—many new things came up. Quite new emotions came up when singing bhajans and the deities could be understood on a new level. To learn Malayalam this way was very good.
