Sing from Your Heart!
Be like a child—
open up and sing with innocence and love.

Sindhu will guide you through singing the bhajan “Amritamayi Anandamayi” by listening, repeating and practicing the verses. You will learn the proper vocalization and pronunciation of the lyrics. The goal is for you to be able to sing and feel the bhajan from your heart regardless of your musical knowledge or vocal abilities. No knowledge of shrutis, ragas, etc. is required—though these might be touched upon as a foundation for your musical growth.

Everything in nature has music within.

Listen to the chirping of the birds, the buzzing of bees, and the rustling of leaves in the breeze. Listen to the wind, the rain, and the waves in the ocean—there is a sound, a rhythm, a song, expressing itself. They are all singing their heart song. Likewise, we also have music within ourselves. We each have a special Amma heart song just waiting to be sung.

Let’s journey together and explore how we can embrace and sing our heart song with devotion and bhakti.

Meet Your Instructor

Sindhu S.

Sindhu first met Amma in 1998 as a student at Amrita University in Ettimadai, Tamil Nadu, India. Sindhu studied Carnatic music as a child, and while participating in weekly satsangs in Ettimadai, she fell in love with Amma’s Bhajans. Her beautiful voice and deep devotion inspired other students and they asked her for lessons on how to sing their favorite bhajans. Now living near MA Center Chicago, Sindhu continues to teach others how to sing from their hearts.

"Children, sing from the depth of your hearts.

Let the heart melt in prayer. The joy of singing the Lord's name is unique. This bhajan is for us to pour out all our heart's accumulated dirt. Leave aside all shyness and open your hearts to God."

~ Amma
