Bhajans and Kirtans originated in Sāmaveda. A musical-lyrical glorification of the a devata or a deity is a Bhajan. Singing Bhajans and Kirtans in praise of the Almighty is an age-old and sacred tradition. Essentially, its simple melodious lyrics and rāgas have the same result as meditation.

Summary: As per much research, it has been found that listening to bhajans and chants, increases the activity in the cells which releases the invigorating hormone “Dopamine”. In addition to building a positive approach towards life, Jagadguru Śrī Ādi Sankarācharya centuries back ascribed Bhaj Govindam, a devotional composition in Sanskrit to underline the importance of bhajans in a seeker’s life. He highlighted that even listening to bhajans brings similar benefits. He refers in the verses that at the time of death, possessions and all worldly knowledge will go in vain, but His name as the savior from this miserable cycle of life and death. Therefore sing the glory of the Almighty.
