The tongue is a post; Bhajan of the Name of God is the
rope; with that rope, you can bring God Almighty near you and tie Him up,
so that His Grace becomes yours. God is so kind that He will yield to
your prayers and be bound. You have only to call on Him,
to be by your side, with you, leading you and guiding you.
Bhajan is one of the processes by which you can train the mind to expand into
eternal values. Teach the mind to revel in the glory and majesty of God;
wean it away from petty horizons of pleasure. Bhajan induces in you a desire for
experiencing the Truth, to glimpse the beauty that is God; to taste the bliss
that is the self. It encourages man to dive into himself
and be genuinely his real self.
