About Us

This is a website for traditional bhajans of Shree Ramkabir Bhakta Samaj.

Shree Ramkabir Bhakta Samaj has a long tradition of singing bhajans (devotional songs). In the old days in India, the Bhaktas, living in proximity to each other, formed bhajan mandals to sing bhajans. The bhajan mandals sang bhajans at all occasions including births, marriages and deaths. In the past 50 years, more than 80% of Bhakta families migrated abroad. As a result, most bhakta bhajan mandals ceased to exist.

In the early 1980s, Shree Ramkabir Bhakta Samaj of USA published Nadbrahma (Shree Ramkabir Bhakta Bhajan Sangrah) - a bhajan book consisting of over 900 bhajans. The Bhakta Samaj also distributed a set of audio cassettes of traditional bhajans ("શ્રી રામકબીર ભક્ત ભજન સંસ્કૃતિનો અમર વારસો") by Syadla Bhajan Mandal and Tarsadi Bhajan Mandal with the aim of preserving this great bhajan tradition of ours. Many youngsters at the time, including yours truly, were inspired to learn to sing traditional bhajans from this audio cassette set.

Keeping in mind the new generation, we have created this website with the aim of preserving the bhajan tradition of Shree Ramkabir Bhakta Samaj and reaching the young bhajan enthusiasts across the globe. Much of the content (audio, video, PDF) is downloadable on any device. Bhajan pages include bhajan text, English transliteration, English translation, audio and also video of the bhajan. The work on building bhajan pages complete with English translations is ongoing. We are continually working to build this site and need your valuable input. Please let us know your views on any aspect of this website. Our contact email address is ramkabir [at] ramkabirbhajans.org. Alternatively, you can use the form in the Comments section. Thank you and Ramkabir.
