Description

A Bhajan is a devotional song. His Holiness Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji has written and composed thousands of bhajans on various deities and philosophical songs. This app helps learn the bhajans by synchronizing the text with audio of the bhajan.

The app is preloaded with all lyrics of bhajans composed by Sri Swamiji and Jayalakshmi Mata, His mother and Guru. You can browse the bhajan list by deity or album. If you already have the audio track on your device, it starts playing and highlights the word in karaoke style. It gives a easy Buy button to itunes for those albums not on your device.

You may forward or rewind the highlighting and audio by using the slider below the bhajan text area.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

 $3.99 in iOS App Store

Version 3.1.4

Jai Guru Datta, ever wanted to see other bhajans with the same ragam? You can now with "Browse by Ragam."

When you want to share a bhajan with someone, you no longer have to tell them the name of the bhajan. Simply use the "Share" icon (box with an up-arrow) when viewing a bhajan to share it with anyone through pretty much any mechanism, including Facebook and Air Drop. The best part? If they don't have the app installed on their device, it'll take them to the website...automatically.

We've also addressed a bug that affected some users when trying to fetch playlists.

Sri Guru Datta.
