Bhajana – sharing
«In the beginning one must have a preliminary desire for self-realization. This will bring one to the stage of trying to associate with persons who are spiritually elevated. In the next stage one becomes initiated by an elevated spiritual master, and under his instruction the neophyte devotee begins the process of devotional service. By execution of devotional service under the guidance of the spiritual master, one becomes free from all material attachment, attains steadiness in self-realization, and acquires a taste for hearing about the Absolute Personality of Godhead, Śrī Kṛṣṇa. This taste
leads one further forward to attachment for Kṛṣṇa consciousness, which is matured in bhāva, or the preliminary stage of transcendental love of God. Real love for God is called prema, the highest perfectional stage of life» (Bhakti-rasāmāta-sindhu, 1.4.15-16).
The word bhajana means both “worship” “devotion” and “sharing” “division”. It is usually used in the contexts of devotional yoga, and in fact bhajans are the devotional songs that the faithful sing together.
You finally feel understood, Pisces. Indeed, people could also help you in your projects, especially if they are something that can enrich not only you, but those around you too.
