Bhajanawali is a non-profit charitable organization. We publish audio and reading content on the subject of spirituality. Bhajanawali was started in April 1981 as a non-profit, charitable radio program. It was and is still based on Vedic Religion and philosophy. In those days we used to broadcast a weekly discourse every Sunday from 06:30 PM to 07:30 PM (Eastern Standard Time) on CJMR AM1320 in the Greater Toronto Area in Canada. In 1998 we started this website and started offering the same broadcast online.
Form 1998-2006 we presented the same radio program every week on the internet that we did on the radio. That simultaneous broadcast was available on the program’s scheduled time, and also for the next four weeks on the internet. We also published other popular discourses and bhajans on the website. In 2007 we ended our radio broadcasts and continued weekly online webcasts only. On special occasions we produce more than one special weekly webcast. For example in 2008 we produced 9 webcasts for each day of Shaardeeya Navaratra with complete recitation of Shri Durga Saptashati.
To meet the costs incurred on our webcasts we rely completely on your donations. There are no commercials in our webcasts. The donors receive charitable donation receipts for tax deductions in Canada. It is your continued help and donations that have made Bhajanawali sustain all these years.
