Welcome to the Devotional Downloads

This blog is an humble attempt to bring together a collection of devotional and delightful songs in praise of the LORD. It is said that when these mantras or stotras are recited and chanted with a full understanding of the meaning , they are more effective and potent. It also helps us appreciate and understand the LORD more significantly and subtly. All these are already available on the internet and my heartfelt thanks to all the authors and contributors. I have started this blog with a few of my choice and while the list can never be exhaustive I will try and add more time permitting . Where possible, download links have been provided.
