New Ayyappa Samaaj Bhajan Book (Version 4)

New Ayyappa Bhajan Book!
After months of effort, with Swami Ayyappa's blessings, new version of the Ayyappa Bhajan Book was released on May 2nd, during the TATWAMASI event. The book is an absolute "must have" for all of us, as it contains all the wonderful songs we have grown to love during our Ayyappa Samaaj bhajans.  

Here are some of the highlights:
  • Multi colored pages, with so many images of deities. 
  • Large font, for better readability.
  • Numerous veda chants and mantra-s in Sanskrit and English.
  • More songs!
  • Descriptions of journey to Sabarimala, significance of vrata, and significance of maala-dhaarana mantra, and more!
  • Presented with high quality binding and type-setting.

Ayyappa Samaaj is very proud to release this new bhajan book, with the support of the Ayyappa devotee community and our esteemed sponsors. Swami Saranam!!
