Bhajana 2007 Supplement

One of the hottest items being sold at the bookstore this year is the 2007 Bhajan Supplement. Practically every bhajan Amma has sung so far on the US Tour has been found in here. In fact, during the first night in San Ramon, every song (except for Om Namah Sivayah) came from the 2007 Supplement.

Almost twice as large at the 2006 supplement, it is filled with 53 bhajans, including Mata Rani and Awaken Children (written about on

Tonight, Amma sang the following

  • Sankar Sut Ho Tum (Hindi)
  • Manas Chora Radha Krishna (Hindi)
  • Satyaslesam (Tamil)
  • Mata Rani (Punjabi)
  • Omkara Divya Porule (English)
  • Om Namah Sivayah
  • Ni Sannidhi Lone Sarvam Amma (Telegu)
  • Sarvavyapiye (Tamil)
  • Jai Jai Janani (Hindi)
Jai Jai Janani (and many of the others) was introduced during the North Indian Tour. Just before Amma left for the NI Tour, She had spent at least four straight nights practicing many of the new bhajans. Jai Jai Janani is a perfect concluding bhajan with an uplifting melody and an overlapping chorus with one group singing ‘Jai Jai Ma Jai Jai Ma Jai Jai Ma Jai Ma’ and another singing ‘Ma, Jai Jai Ma, Jai Jai Ma, Jai Jai Ma’

It is said that during the Kali Yuga, singing is one of the best ways to keep the mind focused and reach inner peace. We are truly blessed that Amma comes out virtually every night to lead us towards this goal.

Thanks for the list. I was trying to figure out the name of the "Jai Jai Ma Jai Jai Ma Jai Jai Ma Jai Ma" bhajan and which year it was. I had just received my order of CDs, so now I am happily listening to Jai Jai Janani.
