-Best devotional Hindu songs-.Not every time you can listen any kind of music , right ! , Of course, we are driven by our mood and surrounding.Certain mood and suitable time we develop for certain habits, so is the case with our choice of music.
We are immensely missing one thing from our lives without even realizing , guess what ? Its soulful traditional Indian music.Contemporary bollywood music has become too noisy to get relaxed on a long holiday outing with our family ,there is no relief at all.If we talk about traditional Indian music , one should not expect to run away from Hindu religious connection.
For me and many this is like a Cosmic music which works as a great soul-healer & stress buster.I would like to consider example of such miraculous Indian music from the period of Mughal emperor-Akbar and one of his prominent Nav-ratna – Tansen.
Tansen had so much control over ‘ Raagas ‘ , that he could achieve astonishing feats by singing them.He could make wild animals like Elephant listen to him and obey him by singing certain “Raagas ” to them.Similarly if he would sing an evening ‘ Raag ‘ during daytime, the sunlight would diminish and it would look like its dusk already !
His most famous divine music was ‘ Raag Megh Malhar ‘ , which would bring rain and another miraculous ‘Raag Deepak ‘ was a landmark raga, which lit many Diya’s (lamps) in Akbar’s Darbar Hall.
Such is the power of music ! So lets breath this shiny saturday morning with 30 minute soulful music on your Bose SoundTouch wireless music system, irrespective of your place, whether you are lying on your cushy-mushy bed or at beautiful Kerala beach house.
Please note that irrespective of the order given below , each & every song here is masterpiece & you will love every song with great ease.
Below enlisted music is of many varieties so that pattern will not be repeated and every single music is an epic in itself , its boundary less soulful Indian music/bhajans are treat for your soul :
1. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan : ” Saanson Ki mala pe simrun main pee ka naam “
This will take you to different world !!! , speechless !!!
Yes you read it right , though Nusrat Sahab is Pakistani but he is one of the greatest ever Ambassador of Indian Classical music ! This is so divine music that , whenever I tune in , it make me lost completely. Only Nusrat Sahab could have done justice to this Epic BHAJAN originally sung by Meerabai (c. 1498 – c. 1557 AD), i.e. more than 500 years back. Can anybody imagine Nusrat sahab had been singing this Hindu Bhajan with name of Ram & Shyam for so long in Pakistan to mainly Muslim audience without any controversy , this is the power of music which binds us together .Later this song with female voice was also featured in Hindi film ‘ Koyla ‘ starring Madhuri Dixit & Shahrukh Khan.
With so much command on” sur & raga ” , Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan has made it a fusion and sung into both form as a Bhajan & also as a Qawwali in this single song . We must understand that Nusrat Sahab uses most of the “Raga’s ” mentioned in ” Samveda “so brilliantly that a common human can also enjoy this , otherwise we all know that with how complexity the classical music is being played by most of the classical musicians ,that very few can enjoy . It seems that he has gone into ” SAMADHI ” while performing and audiences are getting the ” Nirvana ” without much effort.
There are many versions available online but this seems to be the best…It may be possible that you will hear this song whenever you have free time or when you are driving.
So beautiful these line are .
⊕Ψ....Na main dekhu gair ko na tohe dekhan du.....neel gagan se bhi parey saiyaan ji ka gaon, darshan jal ki kammna pat rakhiyo hey raaam. jab se radha shyam ke nain huye hain char, shyam baney hain radhika, radha ban gye shyam. ab kismat ke hath hai is bandhan ki laaj. maine to mann likh diya sanwariya ke nam, ho..wo chatar hai kamini wo hai sundar naar. jiss pagli ny kar diya sajan ka mann raam.........⊕Ψ

He passed away couple of years back , but I am sure you can easily commemorate his voice from your childhood.He did not follow any such classical music complexity but everyone’s very much own voice that everyone even humming around just like him .His two collections are most famous ‘ Premanjali Pushpanjali ‘ & ‘ Hanuman Chalisa ‘
There are 13 songs in Premanjali Pushpanjali & each one of them is gem , you will surely everyone of them and always. These songs you can hear in any mood , when you are happy or even depressed , positive energy of these songs will surely benefit you and your surroundings.
