An evening of bhajans and discourses

Last week the sanyasins from Bharat Sevashram Sangha held a program where there were some discourses from the scriptures, Arati, and singing of some bhajans to praise the Lord. It wasn’t much of a fanfare instead rather low key but the turnout was immense. The singer sang with a harmonium and doled out some usual renditions of “Hare Krsna Hare Rama”. He was accompanied by a mridangam player.

Personally out of all the drum family I love the feminine sounds of the mridangam……. much better than the tabla or the dholak or dhak. The artist played with a lot of gusto. I totally enjoyed the whole program. I didn’t get very good shots simply because it was too crowded and every time I’d click somebody would break into a vigorous dance……. too fast for me. I kinda salvaged these two from the out of focus ones.

    I usually don’t like music added to a blog but in this case it was beautiful and added to the pictures. I could almost see the motion. Beautiful.

    I love that first shot, and have unsuccessfully tried to duplicate this effect just with shutter speed. I never seem to get it right.

    I wish there were a picture of a mridangam; I am well aware of the tabla, but unfamiliar with this instrument. I don’t hear it, or even the harmonium. But I would like to.
