Bhajan literally means "sharing", it also refers to any song with religious theme or spiritual ideas.
A Bhajan has no prescribed form or set rules, is in free form, normally lyrical and based on melodic ragas.
It belongs to a genre of music and arts that are found in the various traditions of Hinduism.
Ideas from scriptures, legendary epics, the teachings of saints and loving devotion to a deity are the typical subjects of bhajans that may be sung individually or together as a choral event.
The Bhajans in many Hindu traditions are a form of congregational singing and bonding, that gives the individual an opportunity to share the music-driven spiritual and liturgical experience as well as a shared sense of identity in the community, wherein people share food, meet and reconnect.
It is usually a group event, with one or more lead singers accompanied with music and sometimes dancing.
A bhajan may be sung in a temple, in a home, under a tree in open air, near a river bank or a place of historic significance.
