Sai Ram Bhajo Mana is the second CD of bhajans recorded live by Harma & Cro Bhajan Group in Zagreb in November and December, 2004.

This CD of bhajans (songs of divine worship) is meant for Westeners - not only for listening purposes, but also for active participation through singing and practicing bhajans with the CD itself. All intonations are adapted for the average vocal range of Westeners, both male and female, to allow most to be able to sing along with the CD. Also, all bhajans are sung in a manner understandable and acceptable to Westeners (without over-complicated Indian vocal figures), as well as harmonized and arranged to be more familiar to the Western listener while at the same time respecting the melody, lyrics and strict structure of the bhajan. We have tried to bring together the eastern beauty and irresistibility (and also incomprehensibility) of bhajans and the love and desire of Westeners who desperately long to sing them, but experience difficulty in doing so.

The Cro Bhajan Group was founded at the beginning of the 1990's in Zagreb as a study group for the learning and practicing of bhajans within the Zagreb (Croatian) Sai Organization. After many years of practice and experience in which we learned and standardized much, at the same time helping people from Zagreb and other parts of Croatia to embrace and learn bhajans more easily, we came to the conclusion that this might also be of aid to other Westeners. It was for this reason that, at an interview in January 1997, we asked Swami for his permission and blessing for the recording of the bhajans in a "western way" upon which He decisively answered, "Yes, do it! I bless it!". And so, there you have the result before you. We would especially like to express our gratitude to dr. Ali Husein from Geneva, as well as his dear wife, Zahra, who held a seminar in Zagreb in the mid 1990's in which we learned some of the basic elements regarding bhajans, as well as many of the most beautiful bhajans, of which some are herewith presented. We thank you.

Benefits

Besides songs in standard audio format, playable in all standard CD players, this multimedial CD also offers all songs in mp3 format, video clip, notes with lyrics and chords, as well as lyrics with chords, translations and glossary, and the most important Sai Baba's discourse about bhajans, and some nice pictures. All this can be opened in standard computers.

Thanks be to Swami for His help, leadership and blessings.
Thanks be to Him for enabling all of this.
Thanks be to Him for Himself...

Love and Sai Ram-Harma & Cro Bhajan Group

Sai Ram Bhajo Mana je drugi CD bhajana koji su uživo snimili Harma & Cro Bhajan Group u Zagrebu u studenom i prosincu 2004.

Ovaj CD bhajana (bogoštovnih pjesama) namijenjen je Zapadnjacima - ne samo za uživanje u slušanju, nego i za aktivno sudjelovanje, to jest, pjevanje i vježbanje bhajana uz CD. Sve intonacije prilagođene su prosječnom rasponu glasa Zapadnjaka (i muških, i ženskih), tako da većina uz CD može pjevati. Svi su bhajani, također, otpjevani na način razumljiviji i prihvatljiviji Zapadnjacima (bez nekih prekompliciranih indijskih ukrasa), te harmonizirani i aranžirani na način koji je Zapadnjacima bliži, poštujući pri tom točnost melodije i teksta i strogu strukturu bhajana. Nastojali smo pomiriti istočnjačku ljepotu i neodoljivost (ali i nerazumljivost) bhajana s ljubavlju i čežnjom Zapadnjaka koji ih silno žele pjevati, ali im pri tom 'nije lako'.

Cro Bhajan Group osnovana je početkom '90tih godina u Zagrebu, kao studijska grupa za učenje i vježbanje bhajana u okrilju zagrebačke (hrvatske) Sai organizacije. Nakon što smo kroz dugogodišnju praksu i iskustva puno toga naučili i standardizirali, pomogavši pritom Zagrepčanima i ostalim Hrvatima da lakše prigrle i nauče bhajane, te uvidjevši od kolike im je to pomoći, zaključili smo da bi to moglo biti od pomoći i ostalim Zapadnjacima. Zato smo na intervjuu u siječnju 1997. upitali Svamija za dozvolu i blagoslov za snimanje bhajana na 'zapadnjački način', na što je On odgovorio odlučno: "Yes, do it! I bless it!" I eto – rezultat se nalazi pred vama.

Posebno bismo se htjeli zahvaliti dr. Aliju Huseinu iz Geneve i njegovoj dragoj supruzi Zahri koji su nam sredinom 90tih održali u Zagrebu bhajan seminar na kojem smo naučili neke osnovne stvari u vezi s bhajanima, kao i cijeli niz najljepših bhajana, od kojih vam neke ovdje i predstavljamo. Puno im hvala.

Posebne pogodnosti

Uz bhajane u standardnom audio formatu koje možete slušati u svim standardnim CD playerima, na ovom multimedijskom CD-u nalaze se i sve pjesme u mp3 formatu, video spot, note s tekstovima i akordima, te tekstovi s akordima, prijevodima i rječnikom i, što je posebno dragocjeno, Sai Babin govor o bhajanima, kao i nekoliko lijepih (i rijetkih) slika. Sve to možete otvoriti u svakom standardnom kompjuteru.

Hvala Svamiju na pomoći, vodstvu i blagoslovima.
Hvala Mu što nam je svima omogućio sve ovo.
Hvala Mu na Njemu...

Love and Sai Ram-Harma & Cro Bhajan Group
